Kingston faves The Skints have joined Easy Star Records and release their third album FM.
The East London dub/reggae band have played loads of great shows in and around town and we have totally been into everything they've released. However, this album seems to be the most fun so far and produced by the legendary Prince Fatty and featuring some great guests!
FM is a concept album that tracks one day at the fictional pirate radio station 103.Skints. With radio station/DJ interludes, and a broad range of styles in the songs, including retro-dancehall (“This Town”), girl-group rocksteady (“Come To You”), Motown-ska hybrids (“Friends & Business”), and classic roots reggae (“In The Night,” “The Forest For The Trees”), The Skints pay homage to the Pirate Radio culture that has helped keep reggae alive for years in the UK. The record even features an amazing, off the wall version of “My War,” by hardcore icons Black Flag. Produced by Prince Fatty (Hollie Cook, Lily Allen, Dennis Alcapone) with the band, the record features guest appearances by Tippa Irie, Horseman, and Rival.
