Skinny Lister/Lincoln Durham/Trapper Schoepp

Since issuing its full-length debut, Forge & Flagon, in 2013 the UK punk band Skinny Lister has been plenty busy. After Forge & Flagon’s release, it toured with Flogging Molly and played big festivals such as Coachella. Last year, it issued its second full-length, Down on Deptford Broadway, and has been on the road in support of it ever since its release. Band members come from all over England. They met in London and the group came together in 2009. Lorna Thomas’s brother, singer-mandolin player Max Thomas, initially formed the band with singer-guitarist Dan Heptinstall; the two knew each other from playing folk clubs in Greenwich, an old naval town that's just down the river from London. They put the group together and started playing traditional tunes at house parties. With Down on Deptford Broadway, which the band recorded at historic Rockfield Studios in Wales with producer Ted Hutt (Dropkick Murphys), the band honed its songwriting skills. Album opener “Raise a Wreck,” features fervent call-and-response vocals and the tender "Bonny Away" allows Thomas to show off her supple voice. “Trouble on Oxford Street,” a song about a real brawl that involved Heptinstall and a gang of punks, sounds like vintage Clash. Expect a rowdy performance tonight at the Grog, a venue at which the band play often. (Niesel)
