May 2007 Skew Siskin was invited by the French Promoters to support Motoread in France.
In the beginning of 2006 SKEW SISKIN went back into the studio to start recording a new CD with Henning Menke on bass, and drummer Randy Black.
Known to be a strong supporter of the band MOTÖRHEAD's frontman Lemmy, guested with the band onstage for the first time on 5th September 2004 at the Columbiahalle in Berlin, guesting on the track 'Boogey Man'.
The record, backed by a promotional video of the single 'The Goddess', finally emerged billed as 'Album Of The Year' through Ulftone Records.
European headline dates commencing in March of 2004 had the band on an extensive run of dates throughout Germany, France, Switzerland and Spain.
During 2001 SKEW SISKIN placed Stefan Schwarzmann (RUNNING WILD, ACCEPT, U.D.O. )as their new drummer.SKEW SISKIN also revealed a fourth album provisionally billed as 'Waste Your Youth' was nearing completion. Armed with a new drummer, the band was confirmed on a German support tour to MOTÖRHEAD in November 2003.
Initially the group embarked upon a lengthy run of dates as guests to SAXON. Extended live work in Germany witnessed a headline tour in September and October 2000 with SKELETOR as support act. Nina would persevere on the road though, attending some shows of the MOTÖRHEAD tour acting as special guest vocalist for the encore song 'Born To Raise Hell'. This track had actually been originally written by Lemmy for SKEW SISKIN. Behind the scenes the band was forced to find a new label, as Cultural Minority collapsed. Lemmy and other industry icons such as ALICE COOPER helped the group through this time.
SKEW SISKIN's 1999 album WHAT THE HELL, saw the band gaining international popularity once more. Lemmy would get involved with the band once again, penning lyrics for two tracks 'Life's A Bitch' and 'Shoot Out Your Lights'. Nina also took time out to duet on the track 'Run' on POTHEAD's 'Burning Bridges' album.
The 2nd CD, 'Electric Chair Music', issued on the band's own Monongo imprint. It's worth noting that band fan LEMMY of MOTÖRHEAD repute, a vocal champion of the band, guests on the track 'B4' found on the 'Voices From The War' EP. The band's fanbase grew substantially during this period and both 'Electric Chair Music' and the EP 'Voices Of War' sold exceptionally well.
A 1993 single of 'Livin' On The Redline' featured the JIMI HENDRIX track 'Purple Haze' as a B side cut. This rendition would be honoured by a popular vot of the US Jimi Hendrix Foundation as an "outstanding cover version".
1992: after signing to Giant Records, the band`s debut album received glowing reviews all over the world. The reviews were especially excited about album track 'If The Walls Could Talk' and the uniquely raw vocal display put on by Nina C. Alice.
"We write music about the way we feel. This could be anything. At the end it's always Skew Siskin music with sarcastic, honest or fragile lyrics, right in your face!
It's very important for us to write really good songs and survive the fast changing trends! We are a Rock 'n' Roll band.
We got together to put the ROLL back into ROCK, if you know what that means. We don't try to reinvent Rock 'n' Roll music.
This IS real heavy Rock 'n' Roll music!
The group toured in Germany with ACCEPT, ALICE COOPER and ANTHRAX as well as playing shows with MOTÖRHEAD + OVERKILL.
They as well played shows with Motorhead in France and UK, as well as with Black Sabbath in USA. Skew Siskin opened up for Monster Magnet and for Bon Jovi and Volbeat.
