Red Dirt Skinners in Space Oddity

Red Dirt Skinners have released their live cover of David Bowie classic Space Oddity.

It features Sarah Skinner on vocals, sax and harmonica, while husband Rob provides vocals, guitar and foot-operated percussion.

Sarah recently explained how the pair’s differing musical tastes provided them with an additional edge, saying: “Rob likes quite heavy, proggy music, and I’m more blues and jazz. When it comes to writing songs or choosing covers to play, we’re very much in agreement.”

The Skinners recently completed a UK tour and return to the road later this month:

Nov 26: Poolewe Village Hall
Nov 28: Nicholforest Village Hall
Dec 02: Kieghley Exchange Arts Centre
Dec 05: Goole Shire Hall

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
