” … the Hairy and Lairy Leicester three-piece with big tunes and big bollocks…”
We are really proud and excited to be featured in the high hopes section of this months Classic Rock Magazine.We have a had a great run of coverage in the Magazine this summer but nothing yet tops our full-page feature in the Sept Edition of the Mag. The Article recognises our commitment to playing Live and hilariously documents the state of the now famous SKAM VAN.
The Article is written by CR contributor and Leicester Boy Lee Marlow. Lee has really done us proud. Also in this edition Lee also delivers a very moving account of Jon lords last interview.

Thanks for all the kind words regarding our recent Cover of AC/DC’s Hell aint a bad place to be.
We were really chuffed when classic rock asked us to contribute to the cover mount CD for the second month in a row. (Summer 2012) And Track number 1 at that!
We had lots of different ideas about which song from 1977 we should cover in the end how could we not have a shot at the awesome DC!
After a hectic 2 days at Leicesters own, Dojo Media recording studio with our long term friend Ollie Petch, we managed to get the song down. We hoped to try and capture a bit of the 70′s style so everything bar a couple of vocal over dubs were recorded live just like how Angus and the boys did it all those years ago!
The blurb in the mag read:
“Rock and roll changed radically i n 1977. Well most rock and roll did. AC/DC stayed exactly the same, bless’em. A roof-burner from Let There Be Rock, Hell… Covered all the important bases: killer riffs, demons, the devil and loose women. This song launched a thousand bands, including fiery brit scruffs SKAM, who let loose here with a furiously punky take on the tune. Thier debut album It’s Come To This is out now.”
Hope you enjoy it.
We are so proud to have ‘No Lies’ Picked to be on the Cover mount CD of the July Edition of Classic Rock Magazine.
The Blurb in the Mag Read:
“One assumes that riding shotgun on The Union and The Answer’s double-header drinkathon in March put hairs on the chest of Leicester’s hotly tipped SKAM, but on the evidence of live favourite No Lies this stinging trio will soon have the material to blow their own roofs off”
Check us out at a local show where we will indeed Blow some roof off!
Another year another Glastonbudget.
And this year promises to be a corker.
SKAM are playing @ 7pm on the Big top stage Saturday!
