Project Description

LIVE AT ELECTRIC BRIXTON BY THE SKINTS

Born from the East London ska-punk scene, The Skints have built up a formidable live reputation in recent years and have been described by Clash magazine as “the torchbearers for modern British reggae music,” marking them out as one of the most respected bands in UK music whilst still staying strict to their independent DIY roots. Playing live is the heartbeat of the band, and this live recording from their sold-out homecoming show at Electric Brixton during the ‘Swimming Lessons’ 2019 European tour captures them at the height of their powers. A melting pot of reggae, rock, ska, and punk, this live recording features blistering live takes of tracks from the Swimming Lessons album, raucous fan favorites from their back catalog, and some very choice covers that the band seamlessly weave into the performance. This is the first Skints live album to be officially released, and as the band explains in the quote below, releasing it now feels especially poignant.

Release Date: July 24, 2020
