Skinny Lister's full bloom, spirit-fuelled folk flurry started blossoming with the nourishment gained from Leicester's folk clubs.
Adding some fertilizer from the Thameside folk community, and life lessons and experience from getting pub punters up and down the land dancing, Skinny Lister are spreading roots for their own lively, irresistible folk revival. Taking a more urban slant, the record takes in city-wide pub crawls (Six Whiskies), hazy lock-ins (George’s Glass), the struggles of modern living (This Is War) and, on the Clash-esque first single ‘Trouble On Oxford Street’, a real-life fight that Dan Hepinstall had in the West End. Bellowhead & Treetop Flyers fans should give this one a spin.
