With 20 years amassing since their National Independent chart number one album “Futile Combat”, Skeletal Family were one of the most influential groups of the eighties Gothic era, with a worldwide fan base spanning all ages,

Their debut single "Trees" gained extensive airplay from BBC Radio One's John Peel (no RIP or Late, as the man, and his spirit still shines on), with the band making an impressive, stunning debut at London's Fulham Greyhound in April 1982.

With a further sx singles and two albums, the band enjoyed commercial success in both the National and Independent charts.

At the request of Sisters of Mercy frontman, Andrew Eldridge, the band played on the Sisters 1984 Black October Tour, also appearing with Siouxsie & the Banshees, Killing Joke and The Mission, plus recording six Radio One sessions for John Peel, Janice Long & Dave "Kid" Jensen, before imploding in 1986.

August 2006 saw the band performing to an ecstatic audience at the UK’s largest punk weekender Wasted festival in Blackpool. Over the past two years, Skeletal Family have topped New York’s Drop Dead Music Festival, played various European / Festival dates, and appeared at Leipzig’s Gotik-Treffen, Europe’s largest Gothic/Alternative festival with an annual attendance of 30,000 people.

Line up for 2009 consisted of:-
Stan Greenwood (Guitars)
Johnny Lorrimer (Bass)
Roger "Trotwood" Nowell (Bass)
