Details

The Scottish art-punk unit The Skids formed in Dunfermline in 1977. Comprised of the dramatic vocalist Richard Jobson, guitarist Stuart Adamson, bassist William Simpson, and drummer Tom Kellichan, the group issued the single “Reasons” on their own No Bad label before signing to Virgin. After two more singles, “Sweet Suburbia” and “The Saints Are Coming,” Skids entered the U.K. Top Ten with “Into the Valley,” included on their 1979 debut LP Scared to Dance.

The band have reunited in 2017 to celebrate their 40th anniversary – don’t miss this rare opportunity to see them in a venue as small as The Brickyard!
