AGMP presents THE SKIDS + special guests: TBC
New Album Announcement – Get Ready!
Recorded in 2022, Destination Dusseldorf, the brand new studio album from Scotland’s legendary Skids, will be released in March 2023 on an array of Vinyl, CD and DL.
Collaborating with incredible artists like Youth, Hugh Cornwall and Martin Metcalfe – all fans of the band. Creativity born from friendship and respect lies at the heart of this new album which we think will be one of our finest recordings.
People change but the heart and the energy that drives the band remains stronger than ever before as we look forward to a new chapter in the bands ongoing history.
You can pre-order the LP and Bundles for shipment in late February 2023, ahead of the official record store release date
The Skids formed in 1977 in their home town of Dunfermline, Scotland by Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson, Bill Simpson, & Tom Kellichan. After releasing an independent single the band were played by BBC Radio One’s John Peel, supported The Clash in concert and then were signed to Virgin Records in 1978. Their first singles were “Sweet Surburbia”, “The Saints are Coming” and “Into the Valley” – the latter reaching the UK Top Ten in early 1979.
Their seminal debut album “Scared to Dance” came out in 1979 which was quickly followed by two chart singles – “Masquerade” and “Working for the Yankee Dollar”. Both singles were taken from the Bill Nelson produced second album “Days in Europa”. The album also featured new member Rusty Egan of Rich Kids & Visage fame after the departure of Tom Kellichan. The band released two more albums “The Absolute Game” (1980) and “Joy” (1981) before splitting.
