Wow! What an amazing response to the first four gigs. Thanks to everyone for their positive comments and kind support. We're all having a blast and can't wait for the next gigs to come around. Unbelievably, it's been 38 years since my last major tour, the Days in Europa Tour of late 1979. Happy days then, and most certainly now.

Dublin and Belfast, you're up next. Hope you're ready.....? The Skids are coming!

The new album, Burning Cities, has now been mixed and sounds really powerful and exciting. Manufacturing and a release date will follow soon. Thanks for your patience, we think you'll find the wait worthwhile, after all, it's only been 35 years!

Thanks to all involved with the tour and album, you know who you are, especially to Richard, Mike, Bruce & Jamie.

Evening All

Just got back from London where I have been assisting in the final mix with Richard. Eleven songs now recorded and mixed. Just the final mastering to get done next weekend then the manufacturing and printing. Didn't think I would get the chance to be involved in a new original album again.......

oh by the way work has begun on the next album but keep it under your hats.
