STA Hearts Skibunny

As longtime STA followers will know, we have a - let's say - 'chequered' history with the NME but one thing we do agree with them on are how good Skibunny are. The NME recently praised them as "Belfast's no.1 remixers, promoters and commotion causers... they do something pretty special to the crowd" and their excellent Uncle Yoshitomo mix does something pretty special to Don’t Waste Time Doing Things You Hate by And So I Watch You From Afar. Check it out on Skibunny's Myspace.

Skibunny are also a three piece band (DJs Tanya singing and playing guitar and Mark on bass guitar joined by Christine on drums) and better bittersweet electro-pop you will not find. I'm currently listening to a sneak preview of one of their new songs. For the 9th time in a row.

If you're going to the Camden Crawl in April, both the band and likely DJ sets are a must for your itinerary. A rather fine looking Skibunny "F**k Dance Let's Art" Oyster card wallet can also be snapped up for a mere £2 from their online store.
