Skinny Banton - Money Have Fi Spend CD UKHCD35
Money Have Fi Spend
Hypocrite & Spy
A Five Track CD produced during the short period Skinny Banton was invited to the UK by UK Homegrown in 2006. The cd features a sample of some of the songs Skinny voiced during his time in the studio. It includes a transcript narrated by Skinny containing his thoughts, feelings about music, life and his musical inspirations. On completion of the cd, Skinny returned to Grenada, where it was shared among his peers, radio stations and Sound systems.
The cd features an eclectic mix of songs providing its listeners with a glimpse of insight into the world of Skinny Banton. As the title track states, Skinny goes on a lyrical rampage spurting thoughts and opinions of the values of money. He carries through with feelings of world injustices in Hypocrites & Spy after touching on religion and showing a softer side of himself in the second tract. As if he had run out of time, he goes into dialogue that suggests there is more to Skinny Banton than what you hear as he demonstrates on Devils Death.
Skinny's choices of tracks pushes him to places outside his safe zone. Voicing on rhythms that had already captured the interests of its listeners, along with beats normally heard in the undergrounds of the UK dance scene, Skinny displays character, quality and versatility in his performances and delivery on each track as they pulsate, steered in the direction guided by his distinctive vocals.
Although the album helped Skinny achieve growing recognition in Grenada, the album faded away over time,lostin the malay of music Skinny has released.
Now seen as vintage, rare and collectable material of an artist who continues to deliver in various genres of music, UK Homegrown have taken this opportunity to remind you of some our work over the years. There are very few out there, and even less circulating in the UK. We are giving you the chance to get your rare copy of Skinny Banton Money Have Fi Spend 5 track cd.
