Rollerskate Skinny

Oh to be a band who was best known for once featuring the brother of Kevin Shields, Jimi Shields. Rollerskate Skinny named after a line from "Catcher in the Rye" was an Irish band formed in 1992 only to disband after a few EPs and 2 long players by the late 90s. Sadly Jimi left the band early on - feeling that the press attention due to his relation to a My Bloody Valentine member overshadowed Rollerskate Skinny who were rather fantastic in their own right.

After the demise of this band member Ken Griffin went on to form Kid Silver (Jetset Records) and now plays in a group called Favourite Sons with 4 members of Aspera on Vice.
