The Skints

London

Wednesday 8th February 2017

Name, where are you from?
Josh from The Skints, London.

Describe your style in three words?
Local, calm, palm.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Jay Z on Hackney Marshes or Refused at Kentish Town Forum spring to mind, but there have been lots.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
The Clash - the godfathers of the style.
Dennis Brown - to hear that voice live one time.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Man so many... '80s LA hardcore, Volcano Sound System-era rub-a-dub, Brooklyn 'Lo Life' style, '90s junglist movement, English Lovers Rock scene, '90s skate scene, Grunge, Grime... The list is long.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I’d love to talk shop and get some knowledge from David Attenborough.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
The Norva, in Norfolk, VA, USA is an unbelievable venue to play. Backstage is crazy, all kind of games machines and a basketball court. Also a jacuzzi, but you’d have to be braver than me to get in there.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Fela Kuti. A true legend of humanity and music alike.
