SKUNKHOUR celebrate the 25th anniversary of release of their game changing, self titled debut album ;Melbourne, Adelaide and Byron bay.
25 years have now passed since one band’s debut album was independently released, picked up on by an eclectic and loyal group of followers around Australia and beyond, coming to mark a small but important shift in the Australian musical landscape. – a true fusion of Aussie indie ethos with the relatively unknown and unheralded genres of Hip Hop, Funk, and Soul. Other bands and artists such as The Rockmelons, Sound Unlimited Posse and Renee Geyer, had made a mark commercially in these areas separately, but no one had fused all these elements together successfully into one sound. A sound that was immediate, honest, raw, groove laden and yet still held a uniquely Australian perspective.
The band was Skunkhour and they are one of Oz music’s truly ground breaking musical groups.
To mark this occasion the band have decided to take their seminal brand of mongrel funk rock back to the stage, featuring a horn section and special guests, with a series of 3 live shows playing their self titled debut album track for track, to be followed by hits from their later catalogue.This is an opportunity to see one of this country’s truly innovative and original acts celebrate a significant time and place in the Australian music story.
