Skunk Anansie Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Finally, after a wait of a few years we have a new repress of Skunk Anansie's scorching debut album, Paranoid & Sunburnt. Their sound was truly multi-racial and (unusually for the times and the height of Britpop) politically-charged. A heavy sound influenced by classic British metal (Sabbath) and sweaty, grimy funk (Sly Stone et al), the band thrust the corruscating and provocative Skin into a ready spotlight. And songs like "Selling Jesus" were the perfect showcase for that thrillingly powerful voice. On One Little Indian records.

Skunk Anansie’s sophomore LP is re-pressed for the first time in a while courtesy of One Little Indian. Not many bands cite Skin et al as an influence any more, but S A's heavy hybrid of funk, metal, post-punk and hard rock was simultaneously ahead of the curve and very much of its time. Stoosh - containing some of their biggest tunes in ‘Hedonism (Just Because You Feel Good)’ and ‘Brazen (Weep)’ - still stands up as one of the group’s most potent statements.
