Skunk Anansie Announce Career-Spanning Live Album '25LIVE@25'

Wednesday, 03 October 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Sunk Anansie have announced a career-spanning live album.

'25LIVE@25' is due to drop on January 25 and marks their 25th anniversary as a band. Looking back on their career, vocalist Skin said:

“As a black female singer, it was hard to get accepted in many ways. And then I was onstage, doing exactly what I envisioned in my dreams. And I felt for the first time that I was accepted.”

Guitarist Ace added:

“London in the 1990s was a mish-mash of people. But bands weren’t – it was always four blokes with identical haircuts. We were a band of people who were real. That’s why we were radical.”

Head below to watch a new video for a live version of the band's 1996 single Weak, which achieves peak nostalgia by featuring footage from numerous performances over the years.

Tue 20 Nov 2018
Photo: Jeff Forney ‘Simulation Theory’ is confusing. Why is such an objectively bad album so enjoyable? The tale of the tape for Muse’s eighth LP is that it’s a mash-up of genres delivered with a crushing sense of overkill on the production side of things. Die-hard fans of the band’s early work will go into it with truly dreadful expectations—after all, they haven’t released a good album in years.
