Who the hell are Damn Skippy?

Formed in wonderful Leeds in 2004, Damn Skippy spent several years happily playing energetic and melodic ska music all over the place and made two very fine EPs with mega producer Tim G.  In their time the guys have been lucky enough to share stages with bands like MU330, The Planet Smashers, Mustard Plug, Random Hand, Sonic Boom Six, Roddy Radiation, The Buzzcocks and loads more. 

Now based in London, in 2015 they got back together after a (rather long) hiatus and played a few barnstorming come-back gigs.  They currently play both as a full band but also as a rather nifty acoustic trio.

Please do check out the tunes and drop us a line regarding gigs or anything else.
