“London’s most badass girl gang” – Dazed
Skinny Girl Diet are two sisters from North London who play raw, abrasive, in your face guitar music. Formed in 2011, when still young teenagers, their first gig was with the Slits‘ Viv Albertine. While a three piece, with their cousin Amelia on bass, they played around the London area initially, earning touring stripes with the likes of Fat White Family and Slaves.
Last year, they appeared alongside legends John Cooper Clarke and The Raincoats. Described by Iggy Pop as “people who just want to reach out and grab your ears” when he played them on his 6Music show, the band have also seen airplay from XFM’s Jon Kennedy, BBC Radio 6’s Marc Riley, Gideon Coe and Steve Lamaq, and BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank. They have graced the cover of Beat, can be spotted online and in magazines like Dazed and Confused, Vice, Vogue, Crack and The Guardian.
The debut album Heavyflow was released in September 2016 to great reviews from Drowned in Sound, The Line of Best Fit and Louder Than War.
Skinny Girl Diet play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Sun 8th October 2017. Tickets available here.
