23 Skidoo | Urban Gamelan + Singles

Expanded reissue of the third album by the seminal post-punk group. Initially active between 1979 and 1987, 23 Skidoo released a series of genre-defining records fusing post-punk, dub, industrial, world and hip-hop styles. In 2000 the group returned with a self-titled album, 23 Skidoo, and remain hugely influential.
Originally released on Illuminated Records in August 1984, Urban Gamelan consolidated Skidoo's position as supreme avant-gardists with uncommon commercial nous. "Coup thundered over the horizon earlier this year. A mighty 45, it's a vinyl TV cop show car chase driven by Sketch Martin's bass, with Aswad's horn section blazing away in hot pursuit" (NME, 1984).
Digitally remastered, this extended CD features four bonus tracks including the original 12" single mixes of Language and the mighty Coup - the latter oddly similar to the 1997 smash by the Chemical Brothers, Block Rockin' Beats. The booklet also features a detailed history of the elusive group, with contributions from Skidoo members past and present.
