The Streets

Opting to bow out before his candle burns out, Mike Skinner released his fifth and apparently final album as The Streets in the early stages of 2011, some ten years after edging into the public consciousness with his blood-shot street rhymes. The man is coming down under for Parklife 2011, in what is set to be his last-ever tour of Australia.
