The Skids - Fields


On this date in 1981, The Skids released their twelfth single, "Fields". It was backed by "Brave Man". The A side appeared on their fourth and final album, Joy. The B side was a non-LP track. This was the first single for the Scottish band since Stuart Adamson, later of Big Country, left the band. It was also the first single since their debut not to crack the U.K. top 100 singles chart. The Dunfermline, Scotland post punk band disbanded in 1982. Stuart Adamson went on to form Big Country.
