Gone Fist­ing, self-re­leased EP, 2014 Visa Vulture, non-al­bum sin­gle, Dead Oceans, 2017 Songs Of Praise, LP, Dead Oceans, 2018 Char­lie Steen Vo­cal­ist. Age: 20 Shame’s charis­matic leader caused an in­ci­dent at a Eu­ro­pean fes­ti­val last year when he walked into hip-hop col­lec­tive The In­ter­net’s dress­ing room think­ing it was where he could get the wi-fi code. Sean Coyle-Smith Gui­tar. Age: 21 Steen’s child­hood best friend. Was once so drunk af­ter a show that he woke up the next morn­ing in a stu­dent hall of res­i­dence and tried to eat a frozen chicken be­liev­ing it was part of the head­line act’s tour rider. Main­tains he never defe­cated down a chim­ney. Ed­die Green Gui­tar. Age: 21 One of Shame’s very first shows was play­ing a vil­lage fete in Kew (for which they were docked £20 due to Steen’s bad lan­guage). Un­be­known to Green, his dad was play­ing cricket less than 50 yards away. “He thought I’d come to watch him, he didn’t even know I was in a band.” Char­lie Forbes Drums. Age: 21 A source of con­stant sar­casm whose con­tacts in South Lon­don’s pub­li­can in­dus­try fa­cil­i­tated Shame com­ing into ex­is­tence. Very nearly missed the band’s re­cent show in Cardiff so he could watch Liver­pool beat Man City in the pub. Josh Fin­erty Bass. Age: 21 Baby-faced Fin­erty is re­spon­si­ble for or­gan­is­ing most of the band’s busi­ness and – as an ex-drum­mer in the school jazz band – is the most pro­fi­cient mu­si­cian in the group.
