From Dunfermline based No Bad Records came forth the debut Skids release. The Skids went on to become firstly John Peel favorites, secondly a decent enough top 40 band for the rest of the singles that followed on the Virgin Record label. Some thought they were aloof and pretentious (what band wasn’t in the late 1970’s, The Cure, Banshees, Antz?). I thought they were great. Richard Jobson after The Skids became involved in The Armoury Show for a couple of singles in 1984, and he was also seen in theatre with Honey Bane, then became Edinburgh’s version of Francis Ford Coppala with his debut directed film ’16 Years Of Alcohol’, which is actually pretty good.
