With snarly guitars, walloping rhythms and lionhearted vocals, SKINNY MACHINES put their own unique twist on some traditional rock ingredients. Jackhammer riffs buttress shadowy tales set amongst the band’s South London heartlands, all served up with a healthy dose of incendiary, outlaw swagger.

Discovered by Kiefer Sutherland, singer Jim Stapley takes his cue from the grand tradition of English blues-rock front-men and has sung with Sutherland’s Ironworks label in the USA and with drum legend Kenney Jones. Guitarist Rikki Glover, drummer Dan Roth and bass-player Mike Woodhouse complete an exceptional line-up.

Relentless tourers, SKINNY MACHINES are word-of-mouth favourites across the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. Following their recent sold-out performance at the world-famous 100 Club in London, new recordings are being finalised to coincide with their “Wind It Up” tour of Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the UK beginning in September 2012. As their self-propagating fan base continues its exponential growth, the trajectory of SKINNY MACHINES seems assured.
