Skyscraper were a UK-based rock band formed during 1992. The original line up consisted of Vic Kemlicz (guitar/vocals) previously of Camden band Milk, ex-Swervedriver bassist Adi Vines and drummer Oliver Grasset formerly of the band Pitchfork Skyscraper. From time to time the band also employed the services of guitarist Fuzz (ex of Silverfish) to fill out the live sound until the arrival of guitarist Adam Lamprell, previously from London band The Scissormen, during 1995. Drummer Craig Adrienne joined the band in 1996.

Although the band's music was superfically similar to the grunge style that was popular at the time, it contained a melodic inventiveness and a characteristically unusual guitar style which brought the band swift attention. Despite being favourites of the UK rock press the band split after the recording of their second album "Shooters" in 1997.
