From the rabble rousing voices to the folk-punk sounds and emotions, every member of the audience was mesmerised… either that or they were just waiting for Lorna, their female co-lead singer, to pass round the huge flagon of Rum she was carrying. Yes folks, Skinny Lister don’t just get the audience in the mood with their music they also give them a little nip of Rum to warm the cockles.

Boy George People will know Boy George for many different guises and vices. Long haired make up wearing 80’s pop icon, DJ, junkie and even felon. All add to the colourful persona that is George Alan O’Dowd and contributed to the fact that I was uber-excited about the gig at Brum's premier venue, The Institute.
