Richard Jobson explains why The Skids are back on the road

Seventies punk/new wavers return with a tour and a new album

Formed in Dunfermline in 1977, Skids enjoyed a number of hits, notably Into The Valley, before guitarist Stuart Adamson quit to form Big Country. Continuing with frontman Richard Jobson at the helm, they lasted until 1982, then reunited briefly to celebrate their 30th anniversary. Adamson took his own life in 2001. Now Jobson explains why the band are reuniting once again.
