Skunk Anansie: "We're Clitpop, not Britpop"

Everett True, Melody Maker, 19 August 1995

Anger. Energy. Passion. Aggression. And that's just the journalist after spending a day with Skunk Anansie, the angriest, most Hi-NRG, in-yer-face, passionate and aggressive live-and-direct, skullcrushingly heavy new band in Britain. On the release of their new single, 'Charity', a dead cert Top 40 smash, Everett True talks to the "liberal man's wet dream" Skin and human dynamo Cass about the selling of Skunk.
