Formed whilst still at school in November, 1977 'The Delinquents' finally got around to playing their first gig in March, 1978 at the 'Our Lady Of Lourdes' Chapel in Dunfermline. This was their first, and only, performance that featured original singer 'Bugs', who left immediately afterwards and was replaced by 'John Brown'.
With a stable line up they now continued to rehearse and play throughout the summer of 78, taking in a much envied support slot with 'Simple Minds' at the local 'Carnegie Hall', Annex on the 21st of August.
Songs from that era included
LIP CHA CHA
In late 1978, with punk supposedly on the wane, the band change their name to 'THE DELINX' in order to try to get more gigs.
During early 1979 both Ray and John decide to leave, Bruce takes on vocals, along with new bassist 'Martin Patterson'.
With a good local following the band start to headline Monday nights during May, 79 at the 'Bar Area' in the Dunfermline 'Kinema Ballroom'. This
leads to local heroes 'The Skids' offering them a support slot when they played the main 'Kinema Ballroom' on the 17th June, 1979.
With the highlight of their career being at the above gig ,'the Delinx' decided to call it a day in late 79.
In 1981 Bruce joined up with 'Stuart Adamson' from 'The Skids' to form 'Big Country' who went on to worldwide success.
After the sad death of Stuart, Bruce filled in on guitar for 'The Skids' when they played the Stuart Adamson Memorial concert in 2002 and will play
with the band at their 2007 reunion shows.
