‘Stop That Girl’ – Skinny Machines

In eleven short months London-based alt-rockers ‘Skinny Machines’ have written, recorded and produced the album ‘Wrong Side Of The River’ and toured extensively in the UK and Europe.  Reminiscent of The Cure if they had been crossbred with  Biffy Clyro’s dirty guitars, ‘Skinny Machines’  echo the night life of South London, producing a shimmering blend of poignant lyrics, heavy riffs and catchy melodies.  Having supported the likes of The Kooks, The Zutons and The Maccabees, the trajectory of this band seems like a foregone conclusion.

Skinny Machines are very excited to be supporting their friends –The Crave– at The Legendary 100 Club on 07 October and will be playing their new single “Stop That Girl” at the show.

We have had a sneaky listen to Stop That Girl – It starts of with the sounds of turmoil through the gassy haze then has glimpses of a tumble of drums. A verse that nags at you like a Mum on school-night and a buoyant chorus. All the time a rumbling bass bubbles along, making you shake your head and tap your silly fat toes. And, after a patch of clear space comes into earshot,  to prepare an anthem sized conclusion, the guitars slice the thin air adding a twist of acid to the blustering beats.

Check Skinny Machines on their links and come along and support them at the 100 Club
