    Skin

    Skin

    As the lead singer in the indie band Skunk Anansie, Skin was one of the iconic faces of the nineties. 

    These days, she mixes her singing with Djing, and has written a new book called It Takes Blood and Guts. In this chat with Fearne, she recounts some of the ways she dealt with the prejudice she faced as a black, queer woman fronting an indie band - and how a chance encounter with Judi Dench helped her find her own voice.
