They first found success in their homeland with the singles "Selling Jesus" and "I Can Dream."

button.gif (123 bytes) Skunk Anansie found increasing chart success with each release from their debut LP and hit the U.K. Top 20 with the tracks "Weak" and "Charity."

September
Skunk Anansie - Stooshbutton.gif (123 bytes) Their second LP, Stoosh, was released and produced by Garth Richardson (who has worked with Rage Against The Machine). The first single from the LP was "Mike Is My Sugar" and Musician magazine said of the vocals: ""...Skin sings like the illegitimate daughter of Johnny Rotten and Sinead O'Connor, who got abandoned at birth and was raised by porcupines ...impressive whether power chording, riffing, or descending into the depths of techno-psychedelia..."
button.gif (123 bytes) In Caught Magazine, Skin said of their second LP: "...(Stoosh) is still quite aggressive, but a lot more diverse than Paranoid And Sunburnt which goes from really loud to really quiet then really loud again. This one takes you through a lot of different moods. We've been listening to some strange stuff and it's helped us develop. I think... (Stoosh) is probably just as aggressive but I think it's probably slightly more insular and a bit more emotional than the first album."
