Limited black and white colored vinyl LP pressing. Paranoid & Sunburnt is the first studio album by British rock band Skunk Anansie, first released in 1995 via One Little Indian Records. This album, featuring a mix of controversial protest songs (mainly about politics and religion), peaked at #8 in the UK Albums Chart. Skunk Anansie were a force of nature built by Skin (lead vocals), Cass (bass), Ace (guitar) and Robbie French (drums). The band formed in London in 1994, at the very height of Britpop mania. Skin was everything your traditional pallid frontman wasn't. She was female, bald, black and searingly intelligent. Magazine editors swooned: here, at last, was an articulate and fearless pop star capable of fighting in her own corner.
