The veteran British band will present their latest album in Barcelona on 13 February
Led by the charismatic Deborah Dyer, also known as Skin, and with a career that spans two decades, though with a long parenthesis in the middle, the British band Skunk Anansie are set to call in at Barcelona’s Razzmatazz concert hall on Monday 13 February to present the songs from their latest album Anarchytecture, a title that references the interface between structure and chaos, freedom and frontiers. During the tour, the group has also been playing a number of old favourites including Hedonism (Just Because You Feel Good), Twisted (Everyday Hurts) and Charlie Big Potato.
For those who are not familiar with the band, Skunk Anansie are an alternative rock outfit whose style has been defined by their vocalist as clit rock: a mixture of hard rock and fierce feminism. Among their influences are groups like Rage Against The Machine, Pearl Jam and Nirvana and their career has not been exempt of controversy – including the stir created by their debut single Selling Jesus in 1995, which was featured on the soundtrack of the science fiction film Strange Days. The day following the concert will be the fifth anniversary of the death of their original drummer Robbie France, to whom the band dedicated the song Sad Sad Sad on the album Black Traffic.
The concert, which is scheduled to begin at 9.30pm, is part of the 18th Millennium Festival and the opening band is The Pearl Harts.
