An expanded remaster of the seminal mini-album Seven Songs by 23 Skidoo, whose unique industrial ethno-funk hybrid topped the British indie charts in 1982.
As well as the nine original tracks, the album has now been expanded to include all material from Fetish label EPs The Gospel Comes to New Guinea and Tearing Up the Plans. Artwork by Neville Brody. The CD booklet features a detailed band biography and archive Skidoo images.
The double vinyl edition of Seven Songs is packaged in a gatefold sleeve and includes a free download coupon as well as their John Peel radio session from September 1981, consisting of material not recorded or released elsewhere. The vinyl also includes the 12" version of Last Words.
