Now then! Ahead of the Leeds gig, a couple of folk were chatting on Facebook about how much merch money they were planning on bringing. At which point I had a very sudden realisation that we didn’t have any merch.
So, I threw together some designs, contacted RDS Print in Wakefield (not a sponsored plug, I just like to support local businesses) and around 5 minutes before the doors opened at Hyde Park Book Club, we had three t-shirts ready to sell.
The t-shirts cost £10 each plus P+P, and at the moment they’re available in S, M, L and XL. They’re Fruit of the Loom valueweight t-shirts, so they’re great for summer (and for afterwards, obviously). They’re available via Nymphs & Thugs here.
You’ll be aware that the pink t-shirt is for ‘#RefugeesWelcome’ and that the yellow t-shirt is for ‘Boro Kitchen 4am’. The white t-shirt contains the artwork for our forthcoming fourth album ‘We Are Humans’, which will be available to pre-order very soon!
When alternative indie act Skint & Demoralised first emerged on the scene in 2007, Matt Abbott was completing his A-Levels and David Gledhill was producing in Sheffield under the guise ‘MiNI dOG’. Demo plays on BBC Radio 1 from Steve Lamacq and Colin Murray led to a frenzy on the band’s MySpace page, and within 9 months they’d signed to Universal Records – one of those classic meteoric rises that the music industry churns out every now and again.
Fast forward to 2019 and Matt Abbott is 30 years old; rapidly establishing himself on the UK’s flourishing spoken word scene. He recently completed a 22-date theatre tour with his critically acclaimed one-man show ‘Two Little Ducks‘. David Gledhill, known more recently for his SOULS project, is releasing a track a week from his East London studio on a new piano project called ’52 Weeks Makes A Year’. Skint & Demoralised have changed, and so has the world around them.
