www.skibunnyclub.co.uk From John Peel faves to globe trotting DJs turned prolific remixers, SKIBUNNY’s Mark & Tanya have come full circle and now present their live band. With one eye on tunes and one on the dancefloor, the music is dark electronic pop with an uplifting heart, sitting somewhere between JOY DIVISION, FOURTET and THE CURE. As DJs, Skibunny have toured across Japan, USA, Europe & UK and appeared at festivals like Glastonbury (Dance East), Oxegyn (MTV stage), T In The Park and Rockness. Read more on Last.fm
www.skibunnyclub.co.uk From John Peel faves to globe trotting DJs turned prolific remixers, SKIBUNNY’s Mark & Tanya have come full circle and now present their live band. With one eye on tunes and one on the dancefloor, the music is dark electronic pop with an uplifting heart, sitting somewhere between JOY DIVISION, FOURTET and THE CURE. As DJs, Skibunny have toured across Japan, USA, Europe & UK and appeared at festivals like Glastonbury (Dance East), Oxegyn (MTV stage), T In The Park and Rockness. As a live band, they’ve played alongside bands such as Casiokids, Holy F**K, Bonde Do Role and David Holmes (Tanya contributes vocals to 2 tracks on his recent LP The Holy Pictures) and they've released two 7” singles. As producers, they’ve remixed people like Paloma Faith, Tilly and the Wall, Forward Russia and Robots in Disguise and as promoters they have been responsible for the debut Belfast shows for bands like The Go! Team, James Yuill, & Kidda. All this has led to the NME calling them "Belfast's no.1 remixers, promoters and commotion causers, they do something pretty special to the crowd" NME (sept08) In 2009, Skibunny showcased at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, and were picked by the Toronto Independent Music Awards as one of the “must-see” bands of the festival.

At SXSW in Austin, Texas, they played a massive 6 shows, yet still finding time for Tanya to do a bit of singing on stage with LA band The Mae Shi! Back in the UK, they played to a capacity crowd at The Camden Crawl, with Radio 1’s Huw Stephens twittering like mad about their performance. Then they disappeared into the studio, emerging only to play or DJ at a few key festivals, including a main stage DJ slot at BESTIVAL, between Doves and Fleet Foxes, plus they went back to the US to play & DJ at CMJ in New York. By the end of 2009 the debut LP was complete and they ended the year with a fun UK tour opening for HAR MAR SUPERSTAR. Skibunny continue remixing away and are included on new releases by Dag For Dag (Saddle Creek), TILLY AND THE WALL (Moshi Moshi) and ASIWYFA (Smalltown America). An EP will be released on 14th June 2010 on Smalltown America Records, followed by the debut album in September.
