THE SKIDS, DAYS IN EUROPA

Here's the 2nd album release from the skids,2 albums in a year!, 1979 was the release date of this controversial album,mainly due to the "aryan" cover which gave more then a hint to The 1936 olympics posters and the german style gothic text,this was quickly withdrawn, how quick im not really sure,as i had a giant poster of this same cover on my bedroom wall which i got from a gig,to be replaced with something less  controversial,and for some reason some of the songs got a remix and the running order was altered,the 2nd release however featured the original cover in the background as a photo on the wall, Here's the original tracklisting
Side one
Animation
Charade
'Dulce et Decorum Est (Pro Patria Mori)
Pros and Cons
Home of the Saved
Side Two
Working For the Yankee Dollar
The Olympian
Thanatos
A Day in Europa
Peaceful Times

great album and very different from Scared to Dance!
