SideOneDummy signs Skinny Lister
by Side One Dummy

SideOneDummy Records has signed London's Skinny Lister. The band will be releasing their first single "Rollin' Over" next Tuesday October 23rd digitally and their debut album Forge & Flagon is slated for release in the United States sometime in early 2013.

The label posted a description of the band, I think, which goes like this:

Skinny Lister are not your average, modern day, gentrified English folk group. The London based five-piece combine traditional folk music with en energy of rambunctious free spirited rum fueled party music . At a time when modern folk music often spells designer bearded, theme park Americanisation, Skinny Lister are a welcome throwback to earthier bands. Their music has part of the Pogues' infectious camaraderie and jovial recklessness combined with the bucolic English landscape of Alfred Wainwright's fell walking guides.
