The Skids + Spear of Destiny

'Days in Europa' 45th Anniversary

An AGMP Concerts presentation:

The Skids formed in 1977 are a Scottish punk rock and New wave band, formed in their hometown of Dunfermline, Scotland by Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson, Bill Simpson, & Tom Kellichan.

After releasing an independent single, the band were played by BBC Radio One's John Peel, supported The Clash in concert, and then were signed to Virgin Records in 1978. Their seminal debut album "Scared to Dance" came out in 1979, which was quickly followed by two chart singles. Both singles were taken from the Bill Nelson produced second album "Days in Europa” (1979). The album also featured new member Rusty Egan of Rich Kids & Visage fame after the departure of Tom Kellichan. The band released two more albums "The Absolute Game" (1980) and "Joy" (1981) before splitting. Spear Of Destiny first appeared on the scene back in 1983 fronted by Kirk Brandon after the break-up of his previous band Theatre Of Hate. Spear of Destiny released a series of incredible singles such as 'Prisoner of Love', 'Liberator', 'The Wheel' and 'Never Take Me Alive, the latter reaching the UK Top 20.
