27-Jan-19 : Gig news

We’re delighted to announce another gig, this time supporting Tunnel Club at their forthcoming Northern Exposure Showcase to be held at the Little Buildings, Newcastle on Saturday March 30th 2019.

Strangely, this gig came about following one of Tunnel Club's remix competitions and, consequently, the style will be more Dance/Club as opposed to previous SkinMechanix outings, which were a bit dark and gloomy. (Don’t worry... we promise we’ll return to doing doom-laden synth noir soon enough...)

Truthfully, we had so much fun working on the remix project that we realised we’d stumbled into a new and very rich vein of music and this gig represented an opportunity to revisit a number of pieces from our back catalogue. The set list will include an even mixture of SkinMechanix, Ion and T-Bass tracks as well as some new pieces and, of course, a couple of Tunnel Club pieces.

As ever, there's more information and commentary in the Blog so have a skim through that and tell us what you think.

26-Jul-18 : NARC Review SKinMechanix @ The Tanners Arms

Thoroughly delighted with this excellent review by local music bible, NARC.

Short 'n' sweet. Just the way we like it.

Of the whole Northern Electric Festival, we had an amazing time. Quality acts throughout and, personally, we cannot wait until next year.

There's more information and commentary in the Blog so have a skim through that and tell us what you think.

29-May-18 Forthcoming gigs

Northern Electric Festival released the formal press statement detailing our appearance at NEF3 on July 21st yesterday.

Like I said, we absolutely cannot wait...

Work on Sirens continues. Several new ideas where added over the last week although I've yet to decide where they fit into the grand scheme, if they fit at all. I have certain ideas as to where Sirens needs to go and, whilst some of the new pieces do lean in the right direction, they're not a perfect fit. We'll see.

Don't forget to have a look at the BLOG for further updates. This is David's personal take on the semi-mythical quest to put together the studio, the album and the gig. He's also promised to keep the potty mouth to an absolute minimum.

One more thing, I've added a Showreel page to make it easier to find examples of our many and varied works whilst we chase those elusive soundtrack deals.

24-May-18 Northern Electric Festival : Year 3

We're delighted to finally confirm that SKinMechanix will be playing at the forthcoming Northern Electric Festival in July 2018.

We'll be appearing at the Tanners Arms, Shieldfield on Saturday 21st July supporting our old friends, Tunnel Club.

More news when we have it.

Meanwhile, have a look at the above movie - a promo for the forthcoming album, Sirens.

17-Apr-18 Forthcoming gigs

SkinMechanix have been invited to play a short support slot at a forthcoming music festival. All information is presently embargoed until the organisers make their announcement but, suffice to say, we're utterly thrilled. This is exactly what we set out to achieve.

We absolutely cannot wait...


The Blog returns

We've split the News section into two and created a new blog page which may be more appropriate to some of David's more obscure ramblings...

A cautionary note : this won't be the return of the infamous roasting blog, which infested these pages around ten years ago. This is a more gentle, more sedate version of that esteemed publication.

You can find the new blog here.
