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.

Their fifth album continues the recent trend of adopting the decade’s glitzier keyboards, with fewer danceable moments than before. It also also does little to alleviate accusations of unoriginality, this time even down to the album’s title: 'Five'.
