"We decided to do Still Life by Suede, and although not many people would expect you to do a Suede cover, it's all about the music at the end of the day.
"It sounds really great, we're really proud of it... and Brett likes it!!" they say.
Both are passionate about the issues Childline deals with. Weve read loads of stuff about Childline, and when the album was mentioned, we literally begged to be on it, says Karen. When you find out more about Childline, you realise how brilliant it is, but it needs more phonelines and cash. I feel really lucky that me and Shellie had such an easy and pleasureable upbringing.
"Friends of ours went through hell, though - from bullying to child abuse and eating disorders. Its often the smaller things that can cause the bigger problems. Quite often you dont feel you can talk to a teacher or a friend, because they may laugh at how insignificant your problem is. Thats why so many phonelines are needed."
"I can remember having problems at school - not being able to speak to anyone about them makes you feel alone and very isolated. Shellie adds The most important thing is that you, out there, can go out and spend your money on the album which is a brilliant musical package and helps the charity, too. We didnt want to record an obvious cover like a famous 60s song. We like Suede and wanted to do something special. Its for a special cause, after all.
The girls' contribution was a superb cover of "Still Life", and this album is the only place you will be able to find this track, so if you want it, buy this album.
