“Hard-hitting lyrics and sunny, feel good grooves” THE GUARDIAN
“The Skints are very much a band on the cusp; they are at the top of their game right now” LOUDER THAN WAR
“Packed with energy and tonnes of soul” CLASH
 
London four-piece, The Skints, have clawed their way up from the depths of the underground punk/ska scene to a unique fixture on the global reggae stage. Drawing influences as wide as soul, pop, grime and hardcore, their original brand of “tropical punk” has seen them evolve in to one of the hardest working and most respected bands in UK music.
 
Formed while at school in 2007, The Skints hail from the Waltham Forest and Redbridge boroughs of North East London, and they cut their teeth in London’s underground punk scene before venturing out of the M25 to play their first selfbooked DIY venture and embark on a heaving touring regime across the nation’s “toilet venue” circuit.
 
Debut album ‘Live, Breathe, Build, Believe’, released at the end of 2009, received late night/specialist rotation across radio including BBC Radio 1’s Punk Show, whilst 2012’s ‘Part & Parcel’, was the second full-length album by the band and further built their fan base and opened doors to heavy touring, festivals and markets outside of the UK and across Europe. The follow-up album, the critically-acclaimed ‘FM’, released in 2015, reached number 5 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart and number 7 on the Independent Albums Chart in the UK and saw The Skints tour relentlessly across the USA, Canada and Japan.
 
Since the band’s inception, The Skints have toured extensively across the globe, playing hundreds of shows and festivals including Summerjam (Germany), Dour Festival (Belgium), California Roots (US) and ReggaeSunSka (France). In the UK, The Skints sold-out their most recent 10-date UK tour including Shepherd’s Bush Empire and have performed at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, Bestival, Glastonbury and Boomtown Festival, performing to 15,000 fans. In addition, the band have supported bands that include NOFX, Less Than Jake, Mariachi El Bronx, Gym Class Heroes, Protoje, You Me At Six and Sublime with Rome & Easy Star Easy Star All Stars.
 
Their latest album “Swimming Lessons”, released spring 2019, draws on influences as sprawling as Bad Brains, Michael Prophet, No Doubt, Alton Ellis, Wiley and Weezer. From crushing heartbreak, the impending doom of Brexit, surviving as an independent musician and navigating the weird world of 2019 – all of these are proverbial “swimming lessons” life throws at us. Lyrically their darkest and most introspective release to date, it is also The Skints pushing and blurring the lines of genre to a more extreme degree than ever before. From 8-bit Game Boy influenced dancehall punk-pop to sound system shaking dub, melodic grunge to harmony laden soul and boasting collaborations from the crop of Jamaica’s brightest roots stars of today; Protoje, Jesse Royal & Runkus – Swimming Lessons is a musical ride that fully surpasses any confines of sound expected of a group from the world in which The Skints started.
 

Supporters of The Skints include BBC Radio 2’s Jonathan Ross, Robert Elms on BBC Radio London, Steve Lamaq and Craig Charles on BBC Radio 6 Music and David Rodigan on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

Cut Capers @ The Fiery Bird Live Music Venue

CUT CAPERS are a 9-piece Bristol band whose energetic live performance and infectious sound have won them a cult following on the British festival scene. Mixing a swinging vintage-style brass section (think Caro Emerald) with funk, soul and hip-hop.

Like all the best bands, (and many of those on Freshly Squeezed Music) their sound is hard to pin down but comparisons have been made to “Madness, The Streets and Lily Allen” among many others (The Bristol Magazine).

Cut Capers have established themselves as go-to festival favourites, playing headline shows and main stage performances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury Festival and Boomtown Fair.
They have now performed in over 50 cities across 8 countries including Italy, Turkey and Bahrain.

To launch their new album METROPOLIS; Bristol’s own Cut Capers now embark upon their first ever UK album tour playing some of the UK’s finest venues!

Funke and the Two Tone Baby
One-man electro blues band
Go to any gig and you get the acoustic opener, the big main band and the afterparty DJ. Fuse them together and you’re starting to get close to Funke and the Two Tone Baby. A one-man phenomenon that mixes folky singalong anthems with blistering blues riffs, juxtaposed with fat bass, big beats and sub kicks. A frenzied amalgamation of organic and electronic that defies all preconception.
