S.K.A.W – Nobody Better

After having a scratch round the cupboards.  I found this 12” by the S.K.A.W. To say that not much is known about this band is an understatement.  I brought the 12” after seeing them at a festival in Portsmouth Guildhall.  My memory fails me but I think Th’ Faith Healers were there too.  I saw them at Winchester Festival with the Cropdusters and a tremendous ska outfit called Knucklehead.

The S.K.A.W were from Portsmouth and there were plenty of them.  They had a harmonica player too.  They had a retro self-belief which was refreshing, a really great live act.

Lead singer Andy Frank, who also sang with Pusherman was tragically found dead at his home in Los Angeles last year. He was 42 years old.
