 *************************
I've not really done many posts on the Skids and I feel I should rectify that today. I had actually had something else in mind to post today but I got gripped afresh by the intro to Into the Valley and that had me rushing to dig out the Debut Album from the Dunfermline lads as it had been awhile since I'd given it a spin.

I wasn't a fan of everything they did but there are a number of singles that I count as quite precious especially their Debut EP featuring Charles (which was re-recorded for Sacred To Dance).

I remember loving the Sessions that they did for John Peel in May 1978 , August 1978 and February 1979.

Although the band had their roots in the Punk/New Wave scene it was clear when listening to Scared To Dance that they had moved beyond that and were carving out a sound that was all their very own.

Hope you enjoy listening to it today as much as I have.
