Skids, Oxford Town Hall, Oxford - 25th January 2019

This was a fantastic concert. The Skids were one of my favourite bands when I was a lad. This was the first time I have seen them live and they more than impressed.

Richard Jobson had a great rapport with the crowd, was funny and his voice was spot on. Oxford Town hall was a great venue and the jangling guitars sounded awesome.

Go and see them if you can - you will be impressed.

Skids, Rock City, Nottingham - 1st September 2017

Been wanting to see The Skids for 35 years and they were amazing!! A great, high energy performance reeling back the years. Can't wait to hear the new album out in January and then see them playing it live next year. This could be the return of great band with a lot more still to offer. Fingers crossed.

Skids, Roundhouse, London - 16th June 2017

So badly want to see them ASAP again. Went to the Meet & Greet b4. That made it hugely memorable too. The boys were so welcoming and humble about our interest in them after so many years

Scottish punk Skids were amongst the first to make a foray into New Wave. First demanding attention when they broke the Top 10 with single Into The Valley and continued to chart highly until their break in 1985.

Quick to catch on to the newly emerged punk movement, Fife band Skids played their first gig during August of 1977 at the Bellville Hotel in their home of Dunfermline which was then followed by the Charles EP only six months later. Their rapid industrialism was rewarded by airplay from legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel and a support slot for The Clash.

Keen to corner the market on punk and impressed by the band’s skill and tenacity, Virgin Records signed them and put out singles Sweet Suburbia and The Saints Are Coming before releasing their Top 10 smash Into The Valley.

Bolstered by the success, Into The Valley was the first track on their debut album Scared To Dance which hit #19 upon release in 1979. It was followed almost instantaneously by second album Days In Europa which they brought out the same year only eight months later. Despite the controversy the album courted by flirting with Nazi fetishized aesthetic and risking audience fatigue from quick successive release, the album still charted well hitting #32. They continued their theme of Nazi inspired iconography for the title and cover of This Absolute Game. The 1980 album saw the band experiment with their sound to encompass folk which resounded with audiences who sent it to their highest album chart position of #9. Their latest album was titled Joy which came out in 1981.

Gigantic is the very best place to book your Skids concert tickets, but with only limited supplies being made available, we do urge you to place your order before they are all snatched up.
