Sydney’s Skinpin have booked a handful of shows in NSW and South Australia after taking a break from supporting their 2015 release So Turn It Back On
SKINPIN are a reminder that Sydney used to be home to a lot of 3 piece noisey punk bands.
Formed out of the loveless and tiresome advertising and culling of musicians in the back of the free street press, they have been at it since 2011.
In a 30 minute set it’s not unusual for them to play 16+ songs with about 4 minutes break to breathe and drink. (I think if they didn’t need to break they probably wouldn’t.) Unlike most bands who when they reach a certain speed turn into barking dogs and cookie monsters, SKINPIN can still be understood with all their melody and harmonies intact.
