The Amazons respond to The Sherlocks photoshop swapping them on the Y Not line-up…

We caught up with the band at the VO5 NME Awards 2018

The Amazons have responded to The Sherlocks‘ stunt of Photoshopping themselves higher than them on a recent festival poster. Watch our interview with the band above.

Earlier this month, The Sherlocks went viral after they swapped themselves with The Amazons on the bill for Y Not Festival. Now, speaking to NME on the red carpet of the VO5 NME Awards 2018, The Amazons admitted that they could see the funny side.

“We didn’t see that much of it to be honest,” said frontman Matt Thomson. “We’ve just been in rehearsals and stuff. We’d just come off the back of a tour, working towards the festival dates that we’re really excited about, and it just seems a bit of a laugh to me. It seemed pretty funny.”


Asked if they’d be getting Photoshop revenge, he replied: “I saw a couple of fans do stuff way better than we could have ever imagined. I think it’s way more fun for everyone else. It just took on a life of its own, and then like everyone was talking about it.”
