Brian Cullen's Love Bullets

Brian Cullens Love Bullets: Clean And Simple

Brian Cullens Love BulletsAt the moment, the focus for the band is getting the new two-track cd ready, and putting together gigs under the Cleft Palate Records (CPR) name. There’s also the continuing focus on being an independent band who do their own thing and do it well. "I don’t think we started off independent – we just started off practising and playing," says Paul. "Me personally, I just get angry to see bands, especially Dublin bands who have signed up to PR companies, and management companies and are doing all these things…" "Treading a well worn path," offers Cadwell.

"I think as well, the independent thing comes from you know… We’re all pretty headstrong people, and we know what we want and we know what we don’t want," sums up Rachel. "And I find it, personally speaking, I find it very hard to be bossed around. I don’t like people telling me what to do – I like to tell people what to do!  I find it very hard to take someone else going ‘you have to do this, you have to do this’, you have to wear this, or you have to go there. I think it came from that more than anything else. I don’t think anyone should have to pay to be on the radio or pay to be on television – I just think that’s wrong"

"I think we’re just independent by default," says Paul. "We’re not sticking to guidelines, it’s just what we want to do – if we can do it, we’ll do it."

Above all, the key to Brian Cullen’s Love Bullets‘ approach to making music is friendship, and a similar focus when creating and recording music. Says Rachel: "I think we all pull together and I think it works – it really does work. Again, going back to being good friends for years has really, really helped us."
