Skinflick - Six Stone Junkie EP

OK... here's something that's not at all archive - in fact it's so up to date that it's only released today! Bangor's industrial rock terrorists are celebrating more than 20 years of making punishing mechanical misanthropic grind-o-throb. We first encountered Skinflick playing in the back room of a Bangor High Street pub back at the very dawn of the 1990s and they stood out as sounding refreshingly like nothing else in the area at the time... and guess what? - they still do!

Their brand new EP 'Six Stone Junkie' is out today as a free download, and we here at Turquoise Coal reckon it's their best yet. No need for us to upload it though - just go to the group's Soundcloud page and grab it for nothing - it's the best bargain you'll get all year!

We hope to dig out some archive goodies from the group in the near future, but in the meantime, where better to start than right here and now?


  1. Bore da, as a new follower of this excellent blog I don't know whether you accept requests and I'm certain that if you do this isn't the place for them. That notwithstanding, I was wondering if you have the first volume of the S4C Makes Me Want To Smoke Crack series and, if so, whether you could upload it. Many thanks.

    1. Hi NewPuritan - I'll try to upload that EP soon... original copies are pretty hard to find these days!
