Wonder what Mike Skinner's up to these days


#1

­­­


#2

He MCs and puts on club nights with Murkage. Saw it at Glasto two years ago. Was shit


#3

I’ll go out without a blink
out without a blink
I’ll go downtown without thinking and shout over a drink


#4

He cancelled a DJ gig at SWG3 recently.


#5

That album he made with the guy from The Music was so decent.


#6

That was just a Streets album you cheeky get


#7

Whatever it was, it was better than ‘Computers and Blues’.


#8

Lol thought that’s what you were referring to cos he sang on it. Didn’t know he did a full album with him.


#9

Yes, they did a full album together. This was the best track -


#10

What? that’s terrible


#11

Doing quite a bit of bugle, I reckon


#12

Waiting for enough time to pass so he can do The Streets again for loads of cash prob.


#13

Just to be clear, I like Mike Skinner and The Streets.


#14

The first album is still one of the best things released in the last twenty years.


#15

he doesn’t think music should be about politics, according to his book (which is great)

weird


#16

It’s kind of amazing his fall from the spotlight. I mean he had number 1 singles, was referred to as the voice of a generation for a few years and now it’s like he never existed.


#17

I thought he said he was too old to perform as the Streets now and ‘retired’. I’m sure he said he was going to work as a producer or something like that.


#18

Funny you should say that…


#19

Nice!

Heard ‘Weak Become Heroes’ on 6Music the other day for the first time in ages and thoroughly enjoyed it. Time to revisit his stuff I think.

and James Murphy said he was going to write films
