Competition: Win Tickets To See SKIP&DIE

Friday 16 November 2012
Words Spindle

Whilst writing their debut album Riots In The Jungle, SKIP&DIE travelled through South Africa’s Soweto, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Guguletu, meeting local musicians and setting up mics at the side of the road. They completed the album in Holland in their studio on the 10th floor of an abandoned office block overlooking central Amsterdam. From there they travelled Europe, selling out shows as they went.

Though this intriguing story actually sounds like the beginnings of a horror film, where said band then go onto be mutilated playthings for deranged millionaires in an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of a Slovakian industrial province, the band fortunately never met such a fate and are now set to play their UK debut at London’s Cargo nightclub on Thursday Nov 22nd.

Having received the notable attention of XFM and BBC 6Music, SKIP&DIE’s hip hop, dubstep and electronica infused lunacy is (putting most Brits to shame) impressively covered in Spanish, Portuguese, English, Afrikaans and Zulu and laced in their wild eyed fashion.

Spindle has FREE competition tickets to give away. To be part of this culmination of intriguing worldliness, answer the following question:

What’s the capital of Holland?
