Laminate drywall on plastered block


Hello,
I'm looking to laminate 1/4" drywall over a cinder block wall (interior party wall) which has been plastered. I have a cracking paint issue, and would prefer not to scrape the whole wall and skimcoat. The plaster seems to be in good shape, so I don't think there's any moisture problem. Unlike previous topics, this is in a very narrow stairway, so im leary of furring the wall out and loosing more than 1/4". Is it wise to secure the drywall directly with concrete screws and joint compound troweled on? Will this hold up?

Thanks!

I'm not too worried about the skim coating, more about getting all of the paint off previous to that.
