"There may have been a few cloudy heads in the morning,"
begins Chi, whilst describing the celebrations for signing to the Scottish independent
label Measured Records. "Though we wouldn't need that many drinks as we were
so vibed up after all the work that we had put in."
It would appear
that the girls found time to play a little during their busy work schedule. It's
a schedule that continues and is one that they appear to relish. References about
the band being able to "cut it" have been made before in interviews,
the girls mention it again tonight a couple of times. No doubt the subject will

admits Soup. "It's not a massive label," she continues. "But it

In attempting to do so and to increase the longevity
of the band, have the girls analysed things and looked at the possibility that
if they might have to do something different because they are a girl band?
"No," begins Soup. "The only thing I could see stopping us
progressing are people that have heard about us and haven't seen us play live
and they have a perception in their mind that because we are girls there is no
point in bothering about us and that we're an average girl band. At the end of
the day we're in a male dominant industry. It's easier for a guy band to break
in, as it's seen as normal."
