40th Anniversary Tour: The Skids + The Defects
1977 anarchy lives on as Richard Jobson's legendary Scottish punk band The Skids continue to wow the crowds. Perhaps best known for their '79 top ten hit 'Into The Valley', they became a major influence on later bands like Green Day and Manic Street Preachers. Via Pledgemusic, the boys celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2017 by releasing 'Burning Cities', their first new album in 35 years!

It was back in 1978 in their native Belfast that The Defects first started. The Defects debut 7 inch vinyl single " Dance until you drop " was released in 1979 and sold well enough to attract the attention of Melody Maker's punk journalist Carol Clerk, herself a native of Northern Ireland. Fast forward to 2009. Buck and Glenn were asked to reform the band to play at the 2010 Punk and Disorderly festival in Blackpool and they agreed. They have been jamming hard with Roy McAllister on guitar and Aidy on bass.
