I saw Skunk Anansie live in Tilburg in 1997 and I was completely blown away, particularly by Skin, the singer. She’s one of the best female rock singers with a voice so powerful and an attitude to match. Gorgeous too.

As was regular at the Noorderligt, a DJ played after the show and the doors would open to the general public. At one point I noticed the backstage door open and a petite figure wearing a hoodie came out and started dancing. I approached Skin between songs to thank her for the concert, she’s a very humble woman.

I’m glad to hear the band is back, powerful as ever.
