UK Tings: Skunk Anansie – My Ugly Boy
by Winston "Stone" Ford
UK band Skunk Anansie never really took on in The States unfortunately, but their albums in the mid-90s became platinum selling releases in the UK. Led by the ever interesting Skin, Allmusic describes the group as “an amalgam of heavy metal and black feminist rage.” The band was bouyed by the Brit-pop reveolution in the 90s but broke early in the next decade only to reform in 2009.
The newly reformed Skunk will be dropping an album in the UK in September called Wonderlustre, and the video My Ugly Boy dropped on UK Rock mag Kerrang last week. You know what I like about the song? Its real rock with real guitars. Check it. (via Rob at Bold as Love)
