Event description
The first of a series of bigger, louder, spanglier LOUD WOMEN nights, at our favourite venue, The Lexington on Pentonville Road.

“At last, real girls, young and believable, singing in their own voices.” - Viv Albertine (The Slits)
“Skinny Girl Diet are what Hole might have sounded like had Courtney Love hailed from Wood Green rather than Portland” - The Guardian
“London's most badass girl gang” - Dazed

Skinny Girl Diet are two sisters from North London who play raw, abrasive, in your **** guitar music. Formed in 2011, when still young teenagers, their first gig was with the Slits' Viv Albertine and the TV personalities. While a three-piece with their cousin Amelia on bass, they played around the London area intially, earning touring stripes with their own generation's breakthrough bands, the likes of The Fat White Family and Slaves. Last year, they've appeared alongside legends John Cooper Clarke and The Raincoats. Played dates in Europe and been interviewed by Arte for German TV. Iggy Pop recently said “Here are some people who just want to reach out and grab your ears” when he played them three times on his Iggy Pop Confidential BBC Radio 6 music shows and everyone from XFM’s Jon Kennedy, BBC Radio 6’s Marc Riley, Gideon Coe and Steve Lamaq, and BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank have put them on the have graced the cover of Beat, can be spotted online and in magazines like Dazed and Confused, Vice, Vogue, Crack and The Guardian. Not to mention the stacks of underground zines. Their debut Album Heavyflow was released in Sept 2016 with great reviews from Drowned in Sound, The Line of Best Fit, Louder than War, and Collapse Board to name a few.

With support from:

*****THE FRANKLYS*****
Comprised of two members from Sweden and two from England, The Franklys play frenetic garage rock with heavy and psychedelic overtones á la Led Zeppelin-Blondie-Strokes-QOTSA-punk-pop-rock-madness.
With extensive touring across both the UK, Europe and America, including festival slots at Isle of Wight, Download Festival and Camden Rocks, The Franklys are surely making themselves known as one of the most exciting new live acts on the UK band circuit.
