Tallulah

London

Tuesday 4th December 2018

Name, where are you from?
Tallulah, South-East London.

Describe your style in three words?
Eclectic, messy and clashy.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
I actually haven’t been to that many gigs, I like watching big full show performances a lot. I saw Britney Spears on her Circus tour - it was pretty epic.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
So I’m thinking about this in a sense of who I think my music would make sense musically to be on a line up with - Eurythmics and Everything But The Girl.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Riot Grrrl.
80’s London Punk.
Early 90’s New York Club Kids.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Robert Mapplethorpe - I just feel like we’d be friends. I guess if we were hanging out back then like 1975 Patti Smith would be playing us something she’d just written for 'Horses'.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
I haven’t played many shows yet but I did my first headline show just over a month ago now, at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington. All my friends came and some of my family so it was super nice - the stage was a pretty tight squeeze with me and my band on but that was quite sweet really it was all very intimate.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill - Kathleen Hanna was the pioneer of the Riot Grrrl movement. Riot Grrrl started as a subcultural movement that combined feminist consciousness, punk style and politics. At the time Kathleen had also started her first band Bikini Kill.
