23 Skidoo The Culling Is Coming CD
A 2021 76-minute CD edition of The Culling Is Coming by 23 Skidoo (originally released on vinyl in 1983).
The Culling Is Coming signposted two radical new directions for Skidoo and drew from two extraordinary live performances: Culling combines a collaboration with the Balinese Gamelan Orchestra recorded at Dartington College of Music in October 1982 (subtitled A Winter Ritual) with extracts from a more extreme improvised set performed at the first WOMAD festival in July 1982, using scrap metal and tape loops (subtitled A Summer Rite).
The original vinyl album is expanded on CD by the inclusion of a complete 1982 26 minute loop performance (subtitled An Autumn Journey) from Tielt in Belgium.
The booklet features the original artwork, archive images and contextual notes by Alex Turnbull of 23 Skidoo.
