Skunk Anansie
Rising from the mean streets of London in the early part of 1993, Skunk Anansie were born in time of social, political and musical change. 
They went on to be one of the biggest rock bands in Britain and Europe throughout the 90’s selling over 5 million records and doing seven sellout world tours until 2000. Three LPs released were ‘Paranoid and Sunburnt’ (1995),  Stoosh’ (1996) and ‘Post Orgasmic Chill’ (1999) seeing the band headline Glastonbury festival as well performing with Pavarotti for the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela for his 80th Birthday ‘Gift to the nation’ shows.

After an 8 year hiatus, Skunk reformed and have been a permanent fixture since early 2009 releasing three new successful LPs: ‘Smashes and Trashes’ (2009) and ‘Wonderlustre’ (2010), ‘Black Traffic’ (2012) as well as completing sell out European tours, and triumphant festival circuits.
