The Skids: Scared To Dance (Virgin)

Ian Birch, Melody Maker, 24 February 1979

PREPARE yourselves for a thorny contender. The Skids are a relatively new four-piece from Scotland who, apart from their current single 'Into The Valley', have released two quirkily original EPs over the last year or so. This is their debut album, and it mixes the ferocious with the adventurous and the erratic in a decidedly curious manner.

Total word count of piece: 518
