TOUR_posterMYSPACEC
They're back (together, that is)!

For those of you who don't remember this group, they sold about 5 million albums from 1994-2001 when they broke up.  Along the way, may of us couldn't help but be mesmerized by the tall, bald, Black female lead singer, Skin.  Unfortunately, for those of us Stateside, there are no US dates yet.  However, fans in Europe will get to see them starting in October.  Here goes:

Oct 09 2009 ANCIENNE BELGIQUE – BRUSSELS
Nov 03 2009 COLISEUM – LISBON
Nov 04 2009 COLISEUM – PORTO
Nov 05 2009 RIVIERA – MADRID
Nov 08 2009 PARADISO – AMSTERDAM
Nov 11 2009 GROSS FREIHEIT – HAMBURG
Nov 12 2009 COLUMBIAHALLE – BERLIN 
Nov 14 2009 TONHALLE – MUNICH 
Nov 15 2009 ALCATRAZ – MILAN 
Nov 16 2009 SASCHALL – FLORENCE

If you want updates, you can sign up for he mailing list at the official Skunk Anansie site.  As of press time, the new site is under development, so you can get some background here.

It's been a while, so here's a taste of Skin and company from a recent London show.  All you audiophiles will appreciate that they took a mix off the board instead of being lazy and going with wild sound.

And here's another:

    This is fantastic news! The first time I saw them on TV was when MTV showed the European Music Awards back around the time when Stoosh was first released. I was amazed. I hope they make it to the US.

    Feel you on this! I’m really rediscovering them anew now. Tons of video on youtube. For the time being, check ‘em out there and enjoy!
