Speaking to Attitude as Texas, the band she’s fronted for nearly three decades, release their new album Jump on Board, the 49-year-old Scot is in a great mood. She’s got much to be happy about.

Having quit her job as a hairdresser, Sharleen, along with bassist Johnny McElhone and guitarist Ally McErlaine, formed the band they had always wanted to and their 1989 debut album Southside hit number three.

They loundered a bit after that but White on Blonde topped the charts in 1997 and cemented their status as songwriters supreme.

Sharleen’s made a couple of solo albums since and was offered a part in Moulin Rouge! but turned it down because of band commitments. She’s as serious about Texas as she is a self-confessed “gobby cow” when it comes to things that piss her off — such as Paris Hilton stomping all over her friends’ coats at a party (she told Hilton to fuck off) or Elizabeth Hurley inviting her over for dinner then pretending not to know who she was, prompting a similarly brief response.
