Armoury Show - Castles in Spain 12" EP 1984 (post-Skids)

In 1984 I heard a song on BFBS that was very strong, powerful, yet melodic, Castles in Spain by Armoury Show. This band resulted from the split of the great Skids, who already had great anthemic POP songs. Richard Jobson was leader of both, aided by John McGeoch, who also played with Siouxsie Sioux and as I just found out, died more than two years ago!
The rest of the Skids formed Big Country, not really unsuccessful either in a similar vein.

Wow, I never thought I'd hear this again. Thanks!

Wow. I have this 12" EP.
I've seen their album on another blog.. I'm not sure if it's any good. John McGeough was one of my fav guitarists.
You have a good blog. Keep up the good work.

@ Squeezo
interesting concept for a blog!
