Skinner's Typewriter

MIKE SKINNER has vowed to write all of his future material on a rusty old typewriter he found in his dressing room at a Belgian festival. The Streets frontman has become inspired by the object, after swiping it from backstage at the Pukkelpop Festival last week (16-18Aug07). He writes on his MySpace page, "We found a typewriter in the dressing room, so I took it and had so much fun all the way home, just typing stuff. I typed a poem entitled, Drowning Doom, which was written while we were in the Eurotunnel in the tour bus, which if you've ever sat in a vehicle in the Eurotunnel you'll understand. "I'm going to use it to type some songs but then I'm going to return it next time we do Pukkelpop."
