London band head to town

Have your say

london-based ska and reggae band The Skints will be in concert at The Leopard in Doncaster this Friday, August 3.

The Skints, hailing from north-east London, have appeared in the UK and Europe with The Slackers, The King Blues, Capdown, The Aggrolites, Chris Murray, Tippa Irie, and Voodoo Glow Skulls.

They were only 16 when they were discovered playing in a Walthamstow pub by a Radio One producer.

In April 2011 The Skints started a campaign through Pledgemusic in which fans could contribute cash towards the recording of their new album in return for rewards such as signed CDs, limited edition T-shirts - and having their name on the album.
