Thursday 21 August 1997 23:02

British Indie rockers Skunk Anansie were yesterday named best British band and top live act at the Kerrang! music magazine awards.

The south-London group, who released the acclaimed Stoosh album, received their awards from last year's winners Terrorvision and Tura Satana.

Skunk Anansie are fronted by bisexual black singer Skin (pictured), who refuses to talk about Britpop and recently told journalists she would smash them in the face if they asked her about Oasis.

American gothic rockers Marilyn Manson scooped best live international act and best band in the world. Other winners were The Prodigy for their Breathe video and surf rockers Reef who took the award for best single with "Place Your Hands On Me".
