A Conversation with Skinny Lister

Greenwich’s Skinny Lister are a band on a speeding upwards trajectory. Having released their debut “Forge & Flagon” back in 2012 via Rob Da Bank‘s Sunday Best Recordings, they have this year released their sophomore album “Down On Deptford Broadway” on Xtra Mile Recordings, which currently stands as one of our favourite releases of the year. We were lucky enough to catch up with the band at 2000trees recently, where we spoke to Max Thomas (mandolin, melodeon), Michael Camino (double bass) and Sam “Mule” Brace (guitar, concertina).

Sheer Music & Songs Of Praise Present…. The Retrospective Soundtrack Players

Ending our 10th year of promoting with our bosom buddies Songs Of Praise in Swindon this year, we are proud to announce that the UK’s best concept folk-pop band THE RETROSPECTIVE SOUNDTRACK PLAYERS will be joining us at The Victoria in Swindon. The Portsmouth band have today released their 3rd full length album on Xtra Mile Recordings, and it’s a belter.

Support for this show comes from Bristol’s best aggro-acoustic masher OXYGEN THIEF, while Swindon’s longest serving (or so it seems) solo performer CHARLIE BATH heads up the local contingent. Finishing up the bill will be Si Hall’s new band COASTERS.

The Retrospective Soundtrack Players (TRSP) were previously called The Dawn Chorus, and enjoyed a big fan base in Swindon, often seen performing alongside Swindon prodigy Shaun Buswell.  TRSP write concept albums; their two previous releases 2012’s “Catcher In The Rye” and 2011’s “Cool Hand Luke” being based on a book and film respectively received wide and deserved critical acclaim. They release their 3rd album, “It’s A Wonderful Christmas Carol” today (24th November 2014) on red vinyl, DD and CD. The record takes influence from Dickens novel A Christmas Carol and the classic 1946 film, It’s A Wonderful Life.
