Skinny Girl Diet

“Fierce girl gang” Skinny Girl Diet are teenagers Amelia, Delilah and Ursula.

Raised on a healthy-sized diet of rock and riot grrrl bands like The Breeders, Bikini Kill, Babes In Toyland and The Slits (in fact, The Slits’ Viv Albertine is now their biggest fan), SKD first formed to fill the gaping girl-shaped void they (and everyone else) noticed in the British rock scene. They’ve since released several EPs and played every dive bar in London, twice, driving their scratchy, screamy songs home at whip-crack pace.

Hear that typified in leery psychedelic pill ‘Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)’, and also in ‘Homesick’, both from last year’s ‘Skinny Girl Diet’ EP, and/or catch the band at London’s ICA Gallery on 14 Jan, when they’ll be adding live noise to a series of short film screenings by director Jennifer Reeder.
