I found these via Gledhill a couple of months back and over that time they've really grown on me.

Matt's a great kid and certainly has a way with words. The tunes do remind me a bit of The Streets as the lyrics are more spoken rather than sung. That 's 'cos they've grown from performance poetry. Don't let the word poetry put you off, give 'em a look!

BTW you can download 15 tunes for free via the links from there too. (We like free, free is good!)

As is tradition with my other music posts...hoiked of myspace...!

Skint & Demoralised is a musical duo. Lyricist and frontman Matt Abbott, from Wakefield, and songwriter/producer MiNI dOG from Sheffield. The combination of Abbott’s gritty, salt-of-the earth poetry and MiNI dOG’s (Dave Gledhill) experienced songwriting skills forms a unique blend of contemporary freshness and retro grooves.

Well Matt is just about to go on tour so in the gesture of sharing the music love. Tour dates...

19 Feb - Fuzz Club, Sheffield
20 Feb - King Tuts, Glasgow
21 Feb - Roadhouse, Manchester
22 Feb - 02 Academy, Oxford
23 Fed - O2 Academy, Birmingham
25 Feb - Audio Club, Brighton

I'm hoping to get to either Sheffield or Leeds if I can. Also saw him promoting this tour on our local news this evening. Good on the lad, go for it.
