The Skinjobs

2001 – 2004

Skinjobs focus on melodic pop-rock sensibilities within the genre of the punk and alternative worlds while targeting the un-tapped and ever-supportive queer communities. Taking their name from the cult-classic movie, Blade Runner, and running with the theme into their stage image, the band also added go-go dancers and ‘secret’ aliases (thus Kim is Mitch Fury, Laura is Lee Hendon, and bassist Mimi Mahovlich is Mason Newlove).

“Skinjobs rock, are catchy as hell too, and their lyrics tackle queer issues in a way that’s smart and funny.
Great job…Skinjobs!”
-Jon Ginoli (Pansy Division)

Focusing on their vast band experience and strong song-writing skills, the Skinjobs tout themselves as a ‘musicians’ band with a colourful and entertaining live show. From their over-sold-out first show to a stint at the Homo A Gogo Festival in Olympia, WA; the Skinjobs surpassed all expectations with an incredibly tight sonic attack/over-the-top live spectacle.

With major festivals under their belt (Rock for Choice, Bent, Homo-A-Gogo) and having shared the stage with Propagandhi, Pansy Division, Sook-Yin Lee, Tribe 8 and a slew of indie-punk bands, the Skinjobs blazed up through the national indie scene with interviews in MaximumRocknRoll (historic punk magazine) and Faggo (North America’s essential queer punk magazine).

Whether it be with their catchy music, anthemic lyrics or their over-the-top live shows the Skinjobs will definitely make everyone want to rock, roll and put their hands in the air.
