SKUNK ANANSIE – Charlie Big Potato

Skunk Anansie are a British rock band whose members include Skin (lead vocals, guitar), Cass (bass, guitar, backing vocals), Ace (guitar, backing vocals) and Mark Richardson (drums and percussion). Skunk Anansie formed in 1994, disbanded in 2001 and reformed in 2009. The name “Skunk Anansie” is taken from Akan folk tales of Anansi the spider-man of Ghana, with “Skunk” added to “make the name nastier”.

They have released six studio albums: Paranoid & Sunburnt (1995), Stoosh (1996), Post Orgasmic Chill (1999), Wonderlustre (2010), Black Traffic (2012) and Anarchytecture (2016); one compilation album, Smashes and Trashes (2009); and several hit singles, including “Charity”, “Hedonism”, “Selling Jesus” and “Weak”.

They are often grouped as part of a Britrock movement, as opposed to the contemporary Britpop of their early years due to their overall harder sound. The band, in 2004, was named as one of the most successful UK chart acts between 1952 and 2003 by the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, with a total of 142 weeks on both the singles and album charts ranking them at No. 491. When the book first published this annual top 500 list in 2000, it only involved weeks spent on the singles chart until 2004’s 17th edition.

I awake
From blood thick dreams
Washing blame
From my knees

Softly done
So secretly
I’m awake
As Charlie sleeps

A lone brother, a lone sister
A home cover, alone

I awake
Dry the scream
Spit the vile breath
Till my tongue bleeds

Thinks it’s all gone
Famously
Broke the hard girl
Good to please

A lone brother, a lone sister
A home cover, alone

Tell it like it is
Tell it like it is
Tell the sordid truth
Tell them
Tell it like it is
Tell them

A lone brother, a lone sister
A home cover, alone
Alone, alone, alone, alone, yeah
