The Skints [Interview]
2000 Trees 2015 is fixed to be something very special – and the Skints’ set is sure to be a highlight for many a happy Trees camper. If I don’t hear these guys’ immense new album FM around the campsite, I will be very disappointed. Here, Skints guitarist/vocalist Josh Waters Rudge runs the TMMP gauntlet in record time:
You’re playing 2000 Trees 2015. How’re you feeling about it?
Great! Got lots of festivals to do before then, but come 2000 Trees we’ll be ready for the fun.
What’s the best thing about festivals for you?
Everyone having lots of fun, playing to loads of people who are predisposed to have a great time, watching cool music, outside.
Do you have anything special planned for your set at Trees?
We’re playing about 50 festivals this summer, so it’s probably gonna be just as gnarly as all the others!
How did the Skints first form? What’s your origin story?
If you go on the Skints’ Wikipedia or Google “The Skints Interview”, the answers lie within!
“Friends from school in London what love music.”
If good taste and cash weren’t issues, what would your stage setup look like?
Do you know what the Wall in Game of Thrones looks like? It’s 700 foot tall and is made of ice.
Beyond 2000 Trees, what’ve you got set up for the rest of the year?
We’ve just done two-and-a-half months’ touring of Europe, UK and USA and we’re touring Europe and UK festivals all summer. Mid-September into October we’re touring France, and hopefully we’ll be back in the USA before the end of the year.
What’s on your bucket list?
There’s a black plastic 13.64 L bucket from B&Q for £1, which is pretty good. Still working out which other buckets are going on the list.
