Skindred, one of the most exciting live rock bands in the UK at the moment were midway through their UK tour in support of new album Big Tings when they rocked up in Manchester to play to a packed house at the Manchester Academy. With CKY and Danko Jones joining Benji Webbe and his bandmates for this jaunt, fans were treated to a solid night which culminated in an unstoppable live performance from the Welsh headliners. Check out John Gilleese’s photos from the night here.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
