(SXSW 2018 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2792: Skinny Lister

By on Tuesday, 20th February 2018 at 6:00 pm

London folk-punk rockers Skinny Lister are about to embark on a wide-ranging American tour, including a stop in Austin, Texas next month for SXSW 2018. To get their party started with a characteristic burst of energy, the band have just unveiled a subversively political new promo video for their latest single ‘Thing Like That’.

The ‘Thing Like That’ video features co-frontman Dan Heptinstall in a rare solo appearance. Here, Heptinstall rebelliously flaunts a one-piece zippered Union Jack suit as he traverses the streets of London, provoking a subtle but noticeably varied array of responses from the people around him. ‘Thing Like That’ appears as a bonus track on the deluxe version of Skinny Lister’s late 2016 album ‘The Devil, the Heart & the Fight’. The album is available now via Xtra Mile Recordings.

A full listing of Skinny Lister’s upcoming tour dates in America, where they will be supported by Xtra Mile labelmate Will Varley, can be found on their official Facebook. TGTF’s previous coverage of Skinny Lister can be found back through here.
