The Streets - Mike Skinner Releasing The Story Of The Streets
British musician Mike Skinner is to reveal all about his former act The Streets in a new book.
The rapper shot to fame in the U.K. in 2002 with the release of The Streets' debut album Original Pirate Material, and he brought the curtain down on the band after releasing Computers and Blues earlier last year (11).
His final live bow as The Streets was in November (11), and he has been working on a memoir, entitled The Story of The Streets, with writer Ben Thompson ever since.
The 352-page tome will detail The Streets' rise to fame and how the act affected the British music scene.
Keeping fans up to date with the book's progress on Twitter.com, Skinner writes, "I wasn't going to have photos in my book coz (because) i thought it was a bit silly but the wife said i had to. mum gave me a stack of photo album (sic). got a bit emotional. where i'm starting school and that."
The Story of The Streets will hit shelves in March (12).
