About The Skids and From The Jam
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The Skids are Richard Jobson, Bill Simpson, Mike Baillie, Bruce Watson & Jamie Watson, who first formed in 1977 in their home town of Dunfermline, Scotland. 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 followed by two chart singles – Masquerade and Working for the Yankee Dollar. 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.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Skids and From The Jam are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
