The Interrupters finished off their UK leg of the ‘fight the good fight’ tour in London with support from The Skints and Buster Shuffle and what a way to end a tour! The show kicked off with Buster shuffle (Check out Buster Shuffle's Interview here) fusing cockney ska punk with rock and roll. Buster Shuffle were very upbeat and energetic creating a really cool melody with their mix of punk and reggae vibes. They were all very energetic, getting the crowd going in no time. This bands’ image stands out from the norm which even shines through with their stage decor and props.
The Skints came on stage next mixing all different genres of music into one. Their music can only make you dance, there’s no escaping it. If you close your eyes the energy coming from reggae, ska, and dub vibes mixed with the beautiful vocals and soft could make your mind travel off to a different place. The variety of instruments is what gives their music so much diversity and variety in their songs. Even their stage props gave a relaxing feel with plants as decoration and soft colored lights. Even the bassist picked up a plant and pointed it at the crowd during a song.
The American ska punk band that we had all been waiting for, The Interrupters, came out on stage for the final night of their UK tour with as much energy as if it was the first. These guys do not disappoint and do not mess around. They all had amazing stage presence with lead singer Aimee climbing up onto the side of the stage and up the barriers screaming lyrics with fans. She was interacting with the audience in every way possible and holding hands with screaming fans. The crowd was going wild, dancing, jumping around and crowd surfing. “I can’t believe it, you are all here and it is an amazing amazing honor for us. Thank you so much London town, thank you thank you thank you. Well, it’s so beautiful when we all sing together. It’s so beautiful. And you know, The Interrupters we make unity music.” - Aimee, lead singer. The Interrupters have a rebellious style, meaningful lyrics and an iconic style. The vocals were clear whilst having that perfect slightly rusky punk sound creating angst. They even covered “Bad Guy '' by Billie Eilish adding their own special touch. The interrupters were audibly and visually what you would expect them to be, bloody fantastic!
