Frontman Andy of Skinny Knowledge Interview2nd February 2021
I have two beautiful huskies, Titan (10, male), and Mika (9, female).
They’re my fiancée’s dogs, but we’ve been together 3 and a half years now, so I class them as my own children now! Jaz got Mika as a 6 month old pup, and she rescued Titan when he was 2. Titan was living in Ireland, and abandoned but thankfully found his way to our home.
Hmm, that’s a tough one, as dogs do weird stuff all the time… They both have strange characteristics, which I guess comes under weird… Mika loves to sleep upside down, even though it makes her sneeze every single time. She’s also insanely demanding, i.e. if you stop stroking her, she’ll reach for your arm, and literally put your hand back on her fur! She’s also an escape queen, and will get into all sorts of mischief.
Titan on the other hand, is a super laid back, old guy. He’s happily sit on our bed all day long and not move. Until it’s 10pm and he’s hungry, and he becomes a troublesome little sod! He also loves to sing f you say ‘come on’ in a high pitch voice. I imagine people walk past us and think we’re super weird…
I’ve always been a dog person, as my family had two Labradors whilst growing up, so I’ve always been around dogs. I’m not so much a cat person, I just don’t like how independent they are. They leave your house and you just hope they come back! I also find it hard to read a cat, whereas a dog, I can most of the time tell how they’re feeling.
Who looks after the huskies while you’re away?
So our debut album comes out on 5th March, which were insanely excited for! We’re hoping to do an album launch show when we’re allowed out of our cages to play… We haven’t really focused on any more writing just yet, all in good time though…
Quick fire questions. Would you have a dinosaur sized pet or a pet the size of a dinosaur? What would it be and why?
I’d definitely go with a dinosaur the size of a pet. Feeding anything the size of a dinosaur would be super expensive, and also, where would you park it?! Also also, having a mini T-Rex would be cool as f…
Have you anything you’d like to say to your fans/followers?
Thank you for all the support over the past couple of months since we started! This is just the beginning of our journey, and we’re so excited to share the rest with everyone. Follow us on the socials and keep up to date with the news, and if it’s not for the news, do it for the dogs!
Andy, this has been a blast to do. Thank you for your time.. Give those huskies a hug from all of as at AATR, stay safe and well and we hope to see you on a stage again soon.
