Slim Pickings consists of 7-8 people who have little to no money, drawn together by their distinctly empty pockets and their collective love of reggae music and, soon enough, a band was formed. Sometimes something just feels right, this wasn’t one of those times but they did it anyway! Rehearsals were missed and debts were racked up, cables broke and pedals packed up, but despite all adversity Slim Pickings came out stronger than ever, with their own unique style of energetic feel good reggae they turn anywhere they can afford to get to into a party.
People have said things like ‘That was cool’ and ‘I loved it’ but it’s up to you to make your own decisions. Based in Leigh-On-Sea they take their influences from all over the reggae spectrum, from local legends like Dane Glasby, to Gentleman and The Skints. They are currently perfecting their set and taking any gig they can get. This is reggae as rootsy as it gets with a rap twist. Lee Perry would be proud.
