Skunk Anansieversary

Incredibly, 2019 will mark the 25th Anniversary of Skunk Anansie, whose latest press release describes as “a glorious mix of race, gender, sexuality, culture and music influences”. Stylorouge have been working with the band to create the packaging and campaign materials for a live album that will spearhead their anniversary celebrations alongside a full-on live schedule for next summer.
Formed in 1994, the band exuded a strong sense of individuality from the start, shunning the Britpop mould of white 20-something men with guitars and instead ploughing their own furrow – painstakingly avoiding the temptation to follow in anyone elses footsteps. 25LIVE@25 will be released in several different formats through Republic of Music and the tracks themselves have been garnered from a number of live recordings covering songs from their complete catalogue.
Stylorouge have filmed a number of online pieces for online marketing – the band discuss the album, track-by-track on all their social accounts. Details at: www.skunkanansie.com.
Accompanying photography is by Rob O’Connor.
Front sleeve photography is by Michael Grein, and the deluxe packaging features more than 200 photos from the bands own archive.
