THE SKINTS feat. TIPPA IRIE & HORSEMAN: This Town (2015) + video

This Town The SkintsPromising dub reggae yout’ action from The Skints here in the esteemed company of Tippa Irie and Horseman with This Town. It’s a paean to London – on which they celebrate the city “they were born in” and “love.” I’m surprised they can find anywhere to live what with all the feral property developers buying up land left, right and centre to flog to the non-tax-paying, super-rich whilst socially cleansing – sorry – re-locating inconvenient social housing tenants. Probably why they’re skint. And who’d want to hang out in a metropolis rife with paedophile politicians, breathtakingly corrupt financiers and parasitic royals anyway? Still, there’s no accounting for taste. This is the first single off the band’s forthcoming third LP, FM which will be repped via a tour in April. Player below, video below that and tour dates below that.
