Interview: Skinny Girl Diet | Pre-Bestival 2017

We're going to Bestival this Summer and Skinny Girl Diet are playing Bestival this Summer. We have so much in common.

RAW MEAT: How are you guys all looking forward to playing Bestival?
Delilah: I love Bestival been going since I was a teenager so it's amazing that we're playing.
Ursula: I'm excited to see the castle.

Who are you most looking forward to seeing play while you’re there?
Ursula: Dizzee Rascal
Delilah: A Tribe Called Quest

Who would each of your dream festival headliners be, alive or dead?
Delilah: Billy Holliday, Prince, Jimi Hendrix, OutKast, Dee-Lite, Wanda Jackson, Memphsis Minnie and Link Ray
Ursula: David Bowie, Little Richard, The Slits, L7, Nirvana, CAN, Joy Division, The Birthday Party, Captain Beefheart, Mazzy Star and Gal Costa

Last time we saw you was at Shacklewell Arms. How does it feel to be on these size stages? And do you think it affects your writing?
Ursula: I think whatever the size of the stage you have to bring the same show you would whether your playing to millions or just 5 people.
Delilah: As a performer, I don't care about the size of the stage I play, I just like playing music. It does not effect my writing in any way.

So there you have it. We managed to get four answers out Skinny Girl Diet before they slinked off, suitably nonplussed. Should we have mentioned that there used to be three of them? Maybe they ate the other one? Regardless, they're impeccably punk and full of an enviable rage. We can't wait to see them gliding through the happy Bestival haze in a few months.

 

STALKER RESOURCES:

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

Kelly Chard, founder of We Can Do It shines a light on some of the more interesting female and non-binary promoters who are ruffling (and spitting) feathers in the music industry.

Described as Scandi minimalists, our SOTW Junodef are chillingly good.

Svartanatt are so rock n roll they don't even need to put an inverted comma at the end of their latest single, 'Drivin'.
