SCREEN WRITER ALICE NUTTER, a member of Chumbawamba for more than two decades, is interviewed in today’s Guardian newspaper.
Interviewer Sam Wollason talks to Nutter about her anarcho-punk past, work and life in Chumbawamba, and her talents and successes as a screenwriter. Of the transition, Wollason reports:
Alice left the band in 2004, because “if you’re jumping about in your mid-40s, you look fucking stupid”. And because she knew she wasn’t really a musician, she was a writer. “I’d been planning it, in my head, all my life.”
