A big thank you to Enemies Of Promise frontman and Revolution Rock presenter Ade Bailey for rushing back from the pub to answer my last minute SOS for someone to pen a guest review. He's chosen to write about the first new album release in 36 years by legendary Scottish band The Skids. Where my write ups only ever mention the positives from a release, Ade goes into what he sees as both the ups and downs of the album. As a massive fan of The Skids, I think he's as good a person as any to give it an honest appraisal.
Before I hand over to Ade, an apology to anyone who might not be able to watch the video. I notice it's a Topic video which I think will mean it's copyrighted and not available to view in certain countries. I was tempted to upload the song onto Youtube myself so everyone could check it out but as The Skids are a big band I thought there was a good chance the label or copyright holder might get upset. If you can't watch the video, try and track the song down anyway as Ade highly recommends it.
