Biography

2. A Swans side project, of Michael Gira and Jarboe.
3. A British band.

1) A pseudonym of British rock singer / guitarist Deborah Anne Dyer (b. 3rd Aug 1967, Brixton, London, England), lead vocalist with Skunk Anansie. Under this name, she débuted solo with the single “Trashed” (June 2003, EMI) and the latest is “Tear Down These Houses” (Dec 2007, Sony BMG Music Entertainment).

After Skunk Anansie split, Skin released her debut solo album “Fleshwounds”. The album was toned down from her Skunk Anansie days and seemingly Skunk Anansie fans never took to it. After releasing “Fleshwounds”, Skin went on to perform various solo gigs around Europe. She was also support for the European leg of Robbie Williams’ and Placebo’s world tours. After touring, she began to record her second album, “Fake Chemical State”, which was released in March 2006, preceded by a new single ‘Just Let the Sun’ on 6th March 2006. The first single from this album was “Alone in My Room”, a download only track released on 7th November 2005. “Alone in My Room” was also the name given to Skin’s first UK solo tour in two years, which started in Berlin on 4th November, 2005.

    One of the many downfalls of Last.fm is that we still can't have separate pages for artists with the same name. [2] 100% Agree. Actually, it's crazy they haven't sorted this out yet - if they indexed artists by say, the musicbrainz artist-id then tthis wouldn't happen.

    Deborah is beautiful and you shouldn't call someone ugly when you're advertising your hideous self as your avatar.
