SKYCLAD in 2006 issued an EP, entitled "Jig-a-Jig". The disc featured a new recording of the instrumental track "Jig-a-Jig", along with the songs "The Roman Wall Blues", "They Think It's All Over - Well Is It Now?" and "Mr Malaprope" from the "A Semblance Of Normality" sessions.
SKYCLAD's most recent album, "A Semblance Of Normality", was released in 2004 through Demolition/Dreamcatcher Records. The CD was mixed and mastered at the Damage Inc.
