SKINT & DEMORALISED

As a performance poet first and foremost, crafting his trade in front of spellbound audiences at local indie gigs and club nights in homage to his idol John Cooper Clarke, Skint & Demoralised frontman Matt Abbott’s development as a lyricist has seen him come of age and craft a record that is as accomplished as it is fresh and exciting. The young Wakefield-born poet has a wealth of experience under his belt, and a keen knack for painting poignancy in the grimmest of settings and framing the particular with universal understanding.

.

It is the vivid and compelling nature of his stories and lyrical vignettes on his songs that give them such impact and resonance; and with Sheffield-based producer MiNI dOG providing the musical accompaniment, the act once described as a “match made in musical heaven” by Sunday Times Culture have once again documented a strangely upbeat snapshot of recession-struck Britain.
