Skinny Lister are not your average, modern day, gentrified English folk group. Fronted by Dan Heptinstall and Lorna Thomas; a vocalist with a lusty cackle and flirtatious presence, the London based five-piece hail from across England. Borrowing the nickname from the Lister family, pioneers in the use of anesthetic, the band have grown naturally and organically over the past two years. ... Read more in Amazon's Skinny Lister Store

Product Description

CD Description

Skinny Lister aka Daniel Heptinstall, Lorna Thomas, Maxwell Thomas, Sam Brace and Dan Gray are the latest new signings to Rob Da Banks Sunday Best Recordings label, a label known for its anything goes signing policy (so long as it s outstanding of course!).  Mixing up furious melee of English folk, in your face shanties, traditional ditties and their own infectious compositions the band came together in the summer of 2009 united by their love of folk, jigs and the outdoors.  Their debut album Forge & Flagon was recorded in deepest darkest Snowdonia with producer David Wrench (Bat for Lashes, James Yorkston) and features 12 unforgettable tracks that will appeal to a wide cross section of fans  - from fans of traditional quality folk, classic songwriting and and alternative sing-along s think Mumford  & Sons and Lucy Rose crossed with Stornaway via The Dubliners / The Pogues.

5.0 out of 5 stars And a fun time was had by all 11 Jun 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Well the album was released today and I heard all the tracks properly for the first time, a few I had heard before but not all. It did not disapoint. As you listen to the album, you can imagine the band really enjoying themselves during the recording and that sense of fun comes across in waves.

Most of the tracks on the album are great up tempo songs, perfect for a warm summer's evening and they are impossible to keep still to. Right from the outset your feet will be tapping to "If the gaff don't let us down" and this continues until the first of the ballads which are well placed and just slow things down a bit to give you a rest before moving on back to the foot tapping that continues with the remainder of the album.

I have heard many comparissons between Skinny Lister and Mumford & Sons but these are somewhat unfair as their styles are very different. There are clearly some style similarities between them and the Pogues however, maybe that is why I find this album so instantly enjoyable.

Unusually for an album, I don't think there are any songs I don't like, yes there are favourites but every song stands up for itself rather than having a couple of rather bland fillers in there.

Really give this band a go, this album is a healthy dose of fun and good music mixed together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skinny Listertastic 15 Jun 2012
By wardy
Format:Audio CD
I was in HMV and this infectious album was playing. I wasn't the only one with tapping feet, smiling face and wondering who the heck it was. Sure there are bits of Mumford & Sons, some Pogues, even some Saw Doctors and Huckleberries.
But this album stands on it's own - good mix of vocals and not a weak track on it.
Straight on in the car on the way home - great motoring listening.
Can't wait for their next.

I bought this as a present for my Hubby. What can I say.... it has been constantly played since we recieved it. I don't think that there is one track on the cd that we dont like. Really catchy tunes, and would recommend this to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful English Folk 3 Sep 2012
By Kathie1
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you don't know Skinny Lister, or even if you do, you'll find this album cheers you up. All the tracks are fab, some are beautiful and tender, other will have you tapping along at least and, more likely, dusting off your best folk-dancing moves.
Superbly, wonderfully, folksy, happy stuff! Can't recommend it enough.
