AN UP-and-coming Redbridge band has taken another big step towards superstardom by performing at one of London's most famous venues.

Former Woodbridge High School pupils, The Skints, played a gig in front of a packed sell-out crowd at the Barfly in Camden - with dozens of fans having to turned away at the door.

The band - Joshua Waters-Rudge, Marcia Richards, 19, Jon Doyle, 21 and Jamie Kyriakides, 22 - made their name playing to crowds of young followers at pubs and bar across Redbridge and Waltham Forest before being spotted by a Radio One executive.

The Skints have a new album out 'Live Breath Build Believe' are currently on tour but will return home to play at the O2 Academy in Islington on Sunday, December 6.

Marcia's proud mum, Susan, of Grove Hill South Woodford, said: "Apparently the new album is selling so well the band are worried supplies may run out in the weeks before Christmas. They are well on the way to making the whole of Woodford very, very proud."
