The Skinner Brothers

Musicians — London

Name, where are you from?
The Skinner Brothers, London.

What do you do?
We’re 4 brothers who play music in a band in London. We dress smart, play hard and know our way around a good tune.

Describe your style in three words?
Suited, booted, prepared.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Any KISS show would always win the award for best show ever.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Santana and Sly and The Family Stone at Woodstock 69’.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
I wouldn’t say we are influenced heavily by a single subculture. We look up to anyone who made it from the bottom to the top!

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack, we’d drink whiskey and talk business with the boss.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
The first show we ever played at the Rock and Roll Rescue in Camden. It was our first ever show, and although it all ended in a big fight and then casualty, it was good fun.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
We live with Patrick Lyons in his flat in Peckham. He has got to be the most underrated modern icon in the art world. Everyone knows him, even YOU!

The first track you played on repeat?
'Love Gun' by Kiss.

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Basket Case' by Green Day. 

One record you would keep forever?
Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack and 'Live Forever' by Oasis.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
“The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.”

'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised' by Gil Scott Heron.

A song you wished you had written?
'Ma and Pa' by Fishbone.

Best song to turn up loud?
'A Bomb On Wardour Street' by The Jam.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
'You Matter To Me' by Peter Criss.

Bruno Mars
Frank Carter
Slipknot
