STREET(S) SPIRIT!

Well, says Mike Skinner, anything Eminem can do...

Streets‘ MIKE SKINNER has revealed he may follow US rap superstar EMINEM into acting.

After returning from a series of US shows and TV appearances, Skinner spoke to Muzik magazine about the follow-up to 2002’s Mercury Music Prize-nominated ‘Original Pirate Material’.

He joked: “People want to listen to what I’m doing. And probably next year they won’t. There is no second LP! It’s all over, finished. I’m making a film!”

Skinner played seven dates throughout the US during March and also made an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’.

[a][/a] tour of the US comes after ‘Original Pirate Material’ was voted best debut album of 2002 by Rolling Stone magazine.

Skinner is set to play the festival circuit this summer with appearances at Homelands (May 24), Glastonbury (June 29), T In The Park (July 12-13) and The Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds festivals (August 22-24).
