Release date: 1983
First released by Les Disques du Crépuscule and Operation Twilight in February 1983, The Culling Is Coming flagged two radical new directions for Skidoo following funk-inflected indie chart-topper Seven Songs the previous year.
Drawn from two live performances, Culling combined a collaboration with the Balinese Gamelan Orchestra recorded at Dartington College of Music in October 1982, together with extracts from a more extreme, improvised set at the first WOMAD festival in July 1982, using scrap metal and tape loops. Both sides of the album were exactly 23 minutes long, side one signing off with a stylus-hostile lock groove.
Digitally remastered, Culling is now expanded with the inclusion of a complete (and equally extreme) 26 minute loop performance at Tielt, Belgium, on 8 October 1982, recorded on Crépuscule's short Move Back/Bite Harder tour with Cabaret Voltaire and Tuxedomoon. The extended CD runs for 76 minutes. Booklet features the original artwork with contextual notes by Skidoo's Alex Turnbull.
