SKIDS Circle Back To Define New Direction

Formed on the crest of a punk wave, if not the top of a mohawk, Dunfermline’s own SKIDS were always much more than their genre affiliation seemed to suggest – as confirmed by the group’s founder Stuart Adamson’s progressing to BIG COUNTRY four years later to play folk-informed new wave. And while the latter ensemble haven’t released anything new for a decade now, the former collective will issue a fresh platter on June 30th.

Chronologically a follow-up to "Songs From A Haunted Ballroom" from 2021, the record titled “Destination Dusseldorf” actually picks up where 1979’s “Days In Europa” – that will be rereleased, with seven bonuses, on the same day as the band’s new one – left off. The Scottish veterans cite this continent as a constant inspiration, “from the beauty of the Renaissance to the savagery of many wars.” Looks life-affirming.
