The Russell Club – 1979  (Autograph)

Saw the Skids at the Factory & got the autographs of 3 band members.  I believe that there is also a Manchester connection with Stuart Adamson of the band

See my later Skids autographs and various tales under the Apollo venue.  Interesting to plot on here how quickly bands went from the Circus/Factory to the Apollo as the new wave broke out of the arty/studenty crowds, into the charts and onto the estates.   Sometimes the cracks showed – I remember young bands playing their hit single 2 and 3 times at the Apollo.

There’s wobbly footage on youtube of the recent Skids farewell gigs at Dunfermline and T in the Park.
