The Skids - Charles

This was the Skids debut single, In my opinion they got better as they went along (I will post some of their classics later), but this is by no means a bad start.

The a-side " Charles" is on a few of the "best of" albums, but I don't think "Reasons" and "Test-Tube Babies are, so here they are just for you.

"Charles" and "Test Tube Babies" are the best tracks, and you can definitely hear strands and riffs of the "The Skids" to come.

Band: The Skids
Label: No Bad Records
Year: 1978
1. Charles
2. Reasons
3. Test-Tube Babies

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

If you like then you won't go far wrong buying this one (it hasn't got all the b-sides, but don't worry I will post them for you).

Hello again

This is another GREAT band.
Do you have their dubbelsingles? If I remember right some of those tracks isn't on any CD.

Best wishes from Sweden
