Skunk Anansie played its first gig at London’s Splash club in March 1994, subsequently taking six weeks to record its debut album, Paranoid and Sunburnt, at a “haunted house” outside the city. The band’s first single, “Selling Jesus,” was featured on the soundtrack of the film Strange Days; Stoosh followed in 1996, and three years later Skunk Anansie returned with Post Orgasmic Chill. They broke up in 2001, with Skin moving on to a solo career (releasing Fleshwounds in 2003 and Fake Chemical State in 2006). The group re-formed in early 2009, playing sold-out shows and recording three new tracks for a greatest-hits album, Smashes & Trashes. The reunion went so well that they decided to stick together and record a new album, Wonderlustre, released in the autumn of 2010.
