The Skids

About The Skids

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 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 and was quickly followed by two chart singles – ‘Masquerade’ and ‘Working for the Yankee Dollar’. Both singles were taken from the Bill Nelson (Be Bop Deluxe) 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. Stuart Adamson went on to have worldwide success with his new band Big Country.
Skids briefly reformed in 2007 to celebrate the band's 30th Anniversary with concerts in their native Scotland at T in the Park and in their hometown of Dunfermline.

In 2017 the band embarked on a highly successful 40th Anniversary Tour covering the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland and an acclaimed appearance at Rebellion Festival in Blackpool. A fifth studio Album “Burning Cities” was released in January 2018 followed by further tours the UK in 2018 and 2019 ending with a co-headline appearance at the Royal Albert Hall in June 2019. 2019 also brought us an acoustic album “Peaceful Times” which consisted of beautifully reworked acoustic versions of classic Skids songs.
