We are the official stockists for Skeletal Family merch!!

They managed to magically transform their CREATURE logo into an amazing and classy BLACK descrete logo which you can wear in T-SHIRT format.

The T's are washable, just do not iron the actual logo or you will end up with a melted mess all over your iron. An iron, what is that some of you say? Well its a super clever device that when plugged in heats up to be as hot as the sun*, and when dragged across your clothes magically removes the creases from said garment.

*Disclaimer - An iron really doesn't heat up to be as hot as the sun, but it feels like that should you accidentally make contact between the iron and your skin....be warned!!

 

About the Skeletal Family:

Formed in Keighley, West Yorkshire, during the Post Punk of early 1980’s out of the band ‘The Elements”, took their name from the title of the song “Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family” from the 1974 David Bowie album, Diamond Dogs.

Something unique was brewing up a dark and broody storm in West Yorkshire at the time with bands like The Sisters Of Mercy, The March Violets, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Southern Death Cult (later became The Cult) forming the basis of what became the soundtracks to the Goth Subculture.

Skeletal Family soon gained popularity in the UK Independent Charts and furiously gigged the length and breadth of the UK and Europe, recorded tracks for the John Peels Sessions, supported The Sisters of Mercy during their 1984 Black October tour, released 2 studio albums ‘Burning Oil’ (1984) and ‘Futile Combat’ (1985) of which saw the release of Skeletal Family’s most successful single ‘Promised Land’ on Red Rhino record label.

Anne-Marie left Skeletal Family in 1985 to form Ghost Dance with Gary Marx, former guitarist of The Sisters Of Mercy.
