Be interesting to hear what it is like.  Who replaced Admason?  He was a fucking ace guitarist.

I think it was the guitarist out of Big Country.

Jobson is a perfectionist so I bet its decent.  He'll have slowed down I hope, you could never hear the words

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Re: The Skids

Played it a few times and have to be honest... it hasn't gripped my soul. Definitely missing Adamson's touch.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening tear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French p*rn.

Re: The Skids

Album is great. It wont change your life, but some cracking songs.

The first songs intro Our World or something is excellent. Proper guitars. The album reminds me of the Mary Chains. Not challenging the classics but worth making. I can see how a proper fan of them would miss the bag pipe guitars, but you can tell it had some thought gone into it!

I like it & will be going to see them on tour, if i get another job by then.

Did you get the 7 inch double pack version.?

They did some great singles before Adamson left and there was one after , Fields which was a bit different but its a long time ago and I never thought much of the Armoury Show.

The one thing that surprises me is how young Jobson was when they had hits, he looked about 30 then!

Re: The Skids

Don't think so, just a normal 7 inch.

Re: The Skids

Into the valley
Peas sure sound divine
That sissy suffered you
But who can Viv iron?
The soldiers go marching
There’s masses of lamb.
Whose disease is cat skin?
My picture is Hugh’s toe.
Ahoy! Ahoy! Len see a sty
Ahoy! Ahoy! Barman and soda
Ahoy! Ahoy! Juicy men embalmed her
Ahoy! Ahoy! Lung nearly gave

Into the valley
Betrothed and divine
Realisations no virtue
But who can define
Why soldiers go marching
Those masses a line
This disease is catching
From victory to stone
Ahoy! Ahoy! Land, sea and sky
Ahoy! Ahoy! Boy, man and soldier
Ahoy! Ahoy! Deceived and then punctured
Ahoy! Ahoy! Long may they die
