As the lead singer in the indie band Skunk Anansie, Skin was one of the iconic faces of the nineties. These days, she mixes her singing with Djing, and has written a new book called It Takes Blood and Guts. In this chat with Fearne, she recounts some of the ways she dealt with the prejudice she faced as a black, queer woman fronting an indie band - and how a chance encounter with Judi Dench helped her find her own voice.
