23 Skidoo  ‘Seven Songs’
(LTM)

Out on 2nd April 2012.

LTM is proud to announce a deluxe limited edition double vinyl reissue of Seven Songs, the seminal debut album by 23 Skidoo, originally released in February 1982. Originally released on Fetish Records as a mini album, Seven Songs topped the indie charts and immediately established 23 Skidoo as a groundbreaking musical force on the post-punk landscape. “Intoxicating – one of the most exciting records I’ve heard since Unknown Pleasures” (Paul Morley, NME, 1982); “23 Skidoo conceived of funk as a sinister energy, and Seven Songs still sounds blood-curdlingly intense” (Simon Reynolds, Rip It Up & Start Again, 2005). Digitally remastered, this deluxe 2×12” set contains an additional 35 minutes of material, including cult single The Gospel Comes To New Guinea/Last Words (issued on 12” in 1981) and their only radio session for John Peel, broadcast in September 1981 and featuring four exclusive tracks never recorded elsewhere.

Nice 8/10 Uncut Review.
