SKIN DEEP

Skin, the unmistakable frontwoman of one of rock’s most urgent bands, speaks to Lisa Connell about 25 years of Skunk Anansie.

Sitting in the cramped confines of the GCN broom cupboard surrounded by printer cartridges, Christmas trees and mop buckets, take a deep breath before hitting record and dialling the living legend that is Skin - the frontwoman of the massive ‘90s rock band responsible for some of the most iconic rock songs of the past two decades. Forming in 1994, the band brought an unequivocal vibrancy and urgency to rock music, releasing three albums; Paranoid And Sunburnt, Stoosh and Post Orgasmic Chill which sold over four million copies worldwide.

They would go on to release four further albums, pursue solo careers and now, 25 years later, release their live album collection - 25LIVE@25.

About GCN

Welcome to a very special edition of GCN. With International Women’s Day on March 8, we decided to celebrate the female-identifying members of our queer family with a host of interviews, features and opinion pieces. There’s an amazing photo set with Pillow Queens, while the ultimate frontwoman - Skin from Skunk Anansie - talks 25 years in the business. There’s a look back at the lesbian nightlife scene of the ‘80s and ‘90s, while writer and director Kate Dolan stopped by to talk all things horror. There’s an urgent and essential piece about the treatment of women in online spaces and a hard-hitting report on LGBT+ killings in Brazil. We highlight the inspiring new queer wave in the Irish student movement and Ellen Murray from TENI, the trans rights and disability rights advocate, tells us about her journey. It’s a great one, people!
