Skin - Fleshwounds

SKN001Deborah Anne Dyer (aka "Skin") was the lead vocalist of britrock band Skunk Anansie. 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. The album was not a massive success in the UK but three singles were released from it; "Trashed", "Faithfulness" and "Lost" (a double A-Side with "Getting Away With It"). Elsewhere in Europe, the album's success was greater. For example, in Italy it peaked at #6 in the album chart. In Germany, it peaked at #18.

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 on 20 March 2006, preceded by a newSKN002 single "Just Let The Sun" two weeks earlier. But the first single issued from this album was "Alone In My Room", a download only track released on 7 November 2005. 'Alone In My Room' was also the name given to Skin's first UK solo tour in two years, which commenced in Berlin in November, 2005.

Skin's next solo outing was a small promotional 'Fake Chemical State' tour. It kicked off in Glasgow on 17 March 2006. She then went onto perform many large festivals around Europe including Rock Werchter in Belgium and the Southside/Hurricane festivals in Germany.
