(SXSW 2015 flavoured!) Live Gig Video: Skinny Lister plays new track ‘This is War’ at Tokyo Shibuya Club Quattro

Ever wondered how English bands go down in other countries other than Britain? Well, having experienced it firsthand myself at the International Forum and the Shibuya-AX, Japan is always a good shout: they just love British bands, and the crowd reaction to Skinny Lister visiting Tokyo last autumn is a great example of this. Their friend Larry Dawgiello filmed this performance at the famed Club Quattro in Shibuya last October of ‘This is War’, a new track that will figure prominently on the folk punks’ new album ‘Down on Deptford Broadway’, which will be released on the 20th of April on Xtra Mile Recordings.

If you happen to be lucky enough to be going to SXSW this year, I think it is a safe bet that the accordion will be a-flyin’ for this number when played in Austin in a few weeks. They also have a UK tour lined up for April and May, with tickets on sale now. Watch the video below.
