This is the first Peel session for the Skids and the diehards among us are grateful for it being unearthed and polished up after all these years but why has it taken so long?? Never mind....
Listening to this now compared to the multi generation cassette tape copy we all seem to have it's unbelievable that there's actually top end frequencies on it. It could have been recorded today it sounds so fresh - both in terms of the quality and also the material.
What a band.
They just don't make em like this any more.

The title may seem silly today but 3 songs on this session were quite heavy of its day(I would say only a couple of notches down)compared to what was happening in Heavy Rock at the time.
This was recorded the same month as the debut SCARED TO DANCE album and none of these tracks went on to be official releases.
Hang On To The Shadows,Zit Capacity and Walk On The Wild Side are the Heavy tracks with Summer being a bouncy catchy try out song.
Unfortunately (for Monsters Of Rock) The Skids were developing as band very very quickly and we would never get to see Jobbo in spadex and leather just the Andy Pandy outfits when Bill Nelson influenced DAYS IN EUROPA came out in OCTOBER (incredible,just 8 months)
A Definite for your collection and still intersting to hear what may have been a different Skids than the fondly loved ones of yesteryear.

The third John Peel session and possibly best so far for me personally as the 3 original tunes were never made available beyond the broadcasted session though there was another version of WOTWS on a `Best Of' compilation. These tracks really underline how fast the Skids were developing as a band and their keen ear for a tune.
As another fan has already said, it's a shame all the sessions weren't bunched together and put out as a cd or better still a vinyl LP but hey - beggars really can't be choosers and we're grateful!
Pleasepleaseplease release the other Skids sessions EMI - they just get better and better!!

So good to hear these sessions again.

Skids were a quirky, weird, truly alternative band, always full of energy.

I remember hearing this on my battered, knackered old transistor radio, pressed to my ear late at night instead of doing my overdue homework.

If you enjoyed the Skids in those days, have another listen...
