Early compatriots of Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle on Britain’s experimental/industrial scene, 23 Skidoo pursued an improvisational fusion of ethnic drumming and post-punk dance on their few recordings of the early ’80s. Named after a slang phrase from the 1920s that had originally appeared in the work of Aleister Crowley, the group formed in London around brothers (and martial-arts experts) Alex and Johnny Turnbull and Fritz Catlin (aka Fritz Haamann). Influenced by Fela Kuti and the emerging New York hip-hop scene, 23 Skidoo released their first single “Ethics” in 1980. For their second, the band recorded at Cabaret Voltaire’s Western Works with Genesis P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle helping out on production.
