Skewwhiff have played festivals and gigs extensively, honing the songs and the set in preparation for their debut long player, Nice Little Upper, which was released in 2014.
Genre is always a poser when faced with such variety of sound, so the fact that Skewwhiff have not been out of place supporting bass legend Mike Watt’s brand of jazz/punk and Brit-pop pioneers Dodgy, demonstrates the difficulty in pinning a pithy label to this bunch of misfits.
The majority of the album was recorded at Tower Studios with Dave Draper (Kerbdog, [spunge], Merrymouth) at the helm, with three tracks having been previously recorded with Nigel Clark, and released via The Whole Hog Recordings in April. The Whole Hog are also responsible for Slap Magazine (Supporting Local Artists and Performers), which further shows that Skewwhiff are fully ensconced in a thriving local music scene.
