Skinny Girl Diet
This band played at the last ever Club Milk at the Rat Star, 2010. I didn’t make it to that show, but afterwards my friends were buzzing about how great Skinny Girl Diet were.
Their fuzzy, bass-heavy sound is surprisingly old school, songs such as “Forget You” sounding like a Heaven’s to Betsy song reconfigured for the future. This is mixed with raw, youthful vocals and a band name that sounds like the kind of sneering you’d expect from a young Polystyrene or Ari Up, though this music is more menacing and grungey than the bands the latter two were famous for.
