Skinny was a band from London which released two albums over a course of four years. Their most successful song, "Failure", was included on both albums.
In 1996, drummer and programmer Matthew "Matty" Benbrook
and guitar player/singer Paul "Paulie" Herman
first met in India, where they discovered they shared similar interests. After another coincidental encounter in London and finding out that both of them were musicians, they decided to start a band together.
They were signed to Rollo Armstrong's
label Cheeky Records
The band split up in 2001, leaving the name with Benbrook who continues to make music under it.
