The Saints are Coming" was the third single by the Scottish punk rock band Skids, featured on their 1979 debut album, Scared to Dance. The song became an international hit when it was covered in 2006 by U2 and Green Day. It was covered again in 2008 by Von Thronstahl. The single was released as part of a four-track EP, Wide Open, which also featured an A-side and two B-sides. The song was also released on their 1979 debut album Scared to Dance.
The Skids are back, but this time it’s different, Getintothis’ Peter Goodbody chats to singer Richard Jobson to find out what’s going on ahead of the release of the new album, Burning Cities. It’s a long while since we saw The Skids in Liverpool. We were still at school back then. In their three year career The Skids released 4 albums and a made a slew of TOTP appearances. Now there’s a fifth long player – Burning Cities – on the way and they’re still as angry as hell. He’s managed to keep the edge and sharpness that gets lost with so many reformed bands or those who go on for too long. This is neither of those things. It’s a proper Skids album and while it may not make many converts, it will certainly keep the class of 77 very happy indeed. Still, we wanted to find out what drives Richard Jobson and what continues to makes him so angry, so we had a chat on the phone to see what he had to say.

On the Edge was a prophetic title for what would be the Babys' final album. By this time, the group was becoming frustrated with their inability to break through to major pop chart success, and those feelings of tension are almost palpable on this release. On the Edge found the Babys continuing with the keyboard-heavy sound that characterized Union Jacks to create an album of pop/rock tunes that is radio friendly but uneven. Rockers like "Sweet 17" and "Postcard" brim with solid riffs and appealing pop hooks, but the energy feels forced on other songs

In the area of production, Darkness on the Edge of Town is nothing less than a breakthrough. Springsteen - with coproducer Jon Landau, engineer Jimmy Iovine and Charles Plotkin, who helped Iovine mix the LP - is the first artist to fuse the spacious clarity of Los Angeles record making and the raw density of English productions. That’s the major reason why the result is so different from Born to Run‘s Phil Spector wall of sound. Yet the dominant instrumental focus of Darkness on the Edge of Town is Bruce Springsteen’s guitar. Like his songwriting and singing, Springsteen’s guitar playing gains much of its distinctiveness through pastiche. There are echoes of a dozen influences - Duane Eddy, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Roy Buchanan, even Ennio Morricone’s Sergio Leone soundtracks - but the synthesis is completely Springsteen’s own.
