Tuesday 5th March at Banquet Records, 7:00pm
Just after the release of their new album, Skinny Lister play in the shop. The fourth record the awesome folk-punkers is titled The Story Is... and sees the band return to play a Banquet show for the first time since 2015.
The Story Is… finds fables in vastly contrasting true stories. Of an arsonist setting fire to the flat below Dan’s (‘Artist Arsonist’), of the sheer annoyance felt when accidentally filling a diesel van with unleaded (‘Diesel Vehicle’) - both songs laced with insight into everyone’s feelings. Even when the songs are outside of the band’s personal experience, they are still inspired by close connections. ‘38 Minutes’ came from a friend’s Facebook post about receiving the Hawaiian ballistic missile alert in early 2018, while ‘Stop & Breathe’ is a plea to everyone to take time out when they can, based on a good friend talking after a friend sadly departed due to suicide.
In-store Grade B.
Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of The Story Is... from us.
