23 Skidoo - Seven Songs reissue & London show
The LTM label will be reissuing, on vinyl, Seven Songs - the 1982 debut album from the always under appreciated yet amazing 23 Skidoo. There doesn't seem to be a pre-order link at the LTM website yet unfortunately. According to Peek-A-Boo magazine, this will be a digitally remastered, deluxe 2x12” set containing 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.Peek-A-Boo also notes that 23 Skidoo will be reforming for a show on March 24 at Electrowerkz (London) at the launch event for Metal Dance, a compilation on the Strut label, curated by deejay Trevor Jackson.
Here's a rare 23 Skidoo video for the song "IY" from Seven Songs:
