I don't want to be a skeleton. I want to be a woman.
Debut single Rich Kids stuck two fingers up at all things pretentious and took a little swing at the government while it was at it.
In just a few months Screama Ballerina have played a lot of shows, had a lot of radio plays and their DIY video for Rich Kids has been played all over the world.
John Lydon said he was into what they were doing. If Jonny Rotten gets it they must be doing it right.
The Screama Army has been growing in numbers and the first show of the residency they've just begun in Reading saw a sell out crowd going totally crazy for the band. Their live show is kicking up fuss and the fires they started this summer show no signs of going out.
The band are back with their 2nd single Skeleton Army. Recorded at White House Studios it's more than just a follow up single. With moments of punk, grunge and full on rock it refuses to be put in a box, it defies genre and that's just the way they like it.
Skeleton Army is sending out an important message to young men and women.
Front woman Charlie O'Connor says 'when I was growing up all I saw on the TV and in magazines was the only way to success and beauty is through starvation. I had friends whose self hatred was so huge it sickened me.
Skeleton Army is a song for the girl I knew who surrounded herself with photographs from magazines of beautiful stick thin models and looked in the mirror and sobbed. She was so thin that she nearly died.
Extreme dieting is dangerous and crushes self confidence yet every glossy magazine has a million diet tips.
This is a protest from the bottom of my heart. This is NOT right. We must stand up for reality and say I don't want to be a skeleton.'
Skeleton Army is a statement of intent. Screama Ballerina have upped their game.
Schemers, dreamers, freaks and outcasts look out - the Screama Army needs you.
