This is what some people have said…
"…The Skints are a band you definetely cannot ignore. And to be honest, I'm not sure you'd want to ignore this band, because the bottom line is, they're absolutely awesome. They've defined their own sound, with Marcia's sax and their energetic riffs. It's unsigned ska-punk at its finest tonight…"
"The Skints are a lot of fun…And for a band which fuses punk and ska, that's exactly what you should be looking for.." Punktastic.com
"Fanbase have been packing out local venues…they're good, aren't they? We had to play that as soon as we heard it on The Black Hole…" Colin Murray, BBC Radio 1
"Furious melodic ska-punk action" Shabby Bookings
"Me is a Skints fan, yes." Benjamin Zephaniah
