Biography

The Skints are a reggae & dub band of upstarts from East London. They mix Jamaican styles with pop hooks, grimey raps, filthy basslines and a punk rock work ethic to create a sound familiar to newcomers, yet unique below the surface.

Their first album "Live , Breathe, Build, Believe" (Bomber Music) crossed the boundaries between the punk scene they grew up in and the reggae ... Read more in Amazon's The Skints Store

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 star band, 4 star album 12 April 2012
By Boone19
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw the skints supporting Reel Big Fish early last year, and I was blown away. I've always loved reggae, ska, and rocksteady, and to see a NEW band take it and give it such a relevant modern edge was amazing. I immediately bought 'Live, Breathe, Build, Believe' and wasn't disappointed: the reggae basis was there, but the rock and grime flavours infused with it made it a unique listening experience. It was full of passion and energy, with heavy political undertones. If I had one criticism to make of LBBB, I would say that it just lacked a bit of finesse and lacked the maturity of a really classic album.

So I bought Part & Parcel in high hopes, and was extremely satisfied with it. The maturity that was lacking in LBBB makes P&P, and its a sophisticated mixture thoughtful and diverse reggae tracks. It was also great to hear a more even spread between the three vocalists: Josh providing P&P with its distinctive London edge, Jamie's soulful tones mellowing a few of the more chilled tracks and Marcia's effortless voice the glue holding it all together. The rhythms a sharp and interesting, and the keyboards add more body to the the guitar's skank, and the sax brings another dimension into the mix. Musically, P&P is very difficult to fault, and is supported by excellent lyrics. Whether it's the simple but effective imagery in 'Sunny, Sunny', or the elaborate tales of East London life in 'Live East, Die Young', the lyrics, if not always extremely complex, make interesting listening anyway.

So why then only four stars? Although musically very tight, lyrically very interesting and an all-round mature and thoughtful album, the passion and raw energy of LBBB lacks slightly. Don't get me wrong, P&P is an excellent album, but the slightly aggressive edge of LBBB is not really here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pushing things forward 19 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
Have followed The Skints since early 2009 supporting the Aggrolites in Bristol U.K and have watched them develop and mature over three years almost like a proud but distant parent. Part And Parcel for me cements a coming of age for this talented bunch of bright young people. There have already been some detractors complaining that the sound is different and it's not what they expected and yes this ain't Live-Breathe-Build-Believe but in order for them to be pushing things forward sonically then they have to cover some new ground.

The Skints have emerged from the the Ska-Core world with a an album reeking with more real Reggae maturity than the 100mph, 2-D, pseudo-ska that is often spewed forth from the scene. L.B.B.B encapsulated the Dub/Rock leanings which were then highly different to their early turbo charged offerings. On this album the main difference you'll notice is that gone are the boombastic-heavy Punk guitar power riff-finials for a generally more uplifting emphasis on vocal harmonies between Jamie and Marcia and analogue heavy production courtesy of Prince Fatty and his studio. The more lighter offerings come in the way of some dabbling in trad Ska (Ring Ring, Lay you Down)and Dennis Brown style lovers reggae(Sunny Sunny).

Those slighly agahst at a band delving into the subjects of love should really grow up and apply the musical Clearasil these tunes offer. Jamie's soulfully unique vocal's really come to the fore here and for that's something not often said of a drummer. Sunny Sunny is dreamy on the ears like good Reggae should always achieve.

What fans of L.B.B.B should give the band credit for is that there is still plenty in the P&P that give heavy heavy workouts in Dub and Grime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underground going overground. Ska for all ages 13 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
I first heard the Skints at a Gogol Bordello concert where they went down a storm with the mix of world music / punk and Uni audience. Saw them again at a Gym Class heros gig where they again got the room moving. Reggae and Ska just keeps going and reinventing itself and this album is as much of a blast and as fresh as the first time I put "Specials" on my record deck, gets to me like Tribute to the Martyrs by Steel Pulse and makes you smile like Desmond Dekker.
But if you have heard none of that old stuff but like your music to get you moving while it moves you, like music made by musicians not studio machines and want to make the best 8.99 investment of the year - you have found it. Touring in the Autumn of 2012 in the UK - Highly recommended maximum fun for your s

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album 12 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
Had a copy of this for about 10 days now, and feel I should apologise to all my other albums, cos they haven't had a look in since I got it! Was expecting big things from The Skints with this album and they haven't disappointed. A seriously awesome album! A modern East London take on traditional reggae, and every track pure quality. The Skints deserve huge success - get on the bandwagon while there's still room!

3.0 out of 5 stars Skints left me short changed 15 Mar 2012
By Joveie
Format:Audio CD
Having followed the Skints since the release of their first EP, I was desperately looking forward to this album, however I have funnily ended up feeling left short changed by the Skints.

I accept that the second album is a very difficult panda to produce, fan's have an expectation of what they should be delivered and bands generally start moving in a new direction, which is what has happened here. So whilst always being a ska/reggae band, they have retained their reggae style, but cut the punk guitars that gave them a fantastic edge. I could live with this if the whole album had the pace and slick styles of the first couple of tracks, but the album tails off in the middle with almost soppy love tracks, which reminds me of how the King Blues went off the rails from raw to wet (and rubbish).

However, the Skints are still far from rubbish. The album's production is first class, the word play is more advanced (Josh and Marcia are excellent) yet Jamie seems to have lost his edge which made the first album so intense.

Partly what has led me to feel that I have been mis-sold the concept was the release of 'Up Against the Wall' prior to the album. This was a brilliant track with, that word I keep coming back to, an edge, that got me very excited about the next album. But to explain the difference between expectation and reality, I would ask you to listen to that, then the new album version. It is a solid example of the change in styles.

I admire the Skints for producing their album through pledge and everything they have always done. This is a good album. But, in my opinion, whilst it is well made, produced and delivered, it lacks a little bit of what made the Skints so great...
