If You Like... Skegss
Artwork by Jack Irvine
From surf rock ratbags to conquering the Ampitheatre at Splendour In The Grass 2018, Skegss have quickly become one of Australia's favourite bands.
Benny, Toby and Jonny make up Byron Bay, DIY surf punk outfit Skegss! We met them in 2014 when they first uploaded LSD to triple j Unearthed and since then, have sold out national wide dates, were your Hottest 100 favourite and more recently, they dropped their brand new debut record ‘My Own Mess’. Our triple j Feature Album, it blitzed the ARIA charts snagging a number 2 record in the country!
In this special, Claire Mooney chats to Kelly from Wollongong outfit TOTTY, you’ll meet Jack Irvine, the legend behind all of Skegss artwork and Mandurah trio Good Doogs, as we introduce you to five brand new artists that we reckon you’re gonna love if you’re into Skegss. We’ll also find out just what it is that’s made Australia fall in love with the trio by exploring the culture and scene they’ve created, their lifestyle growing up outside the city and how that’s shaped their music.
