Early compatriots of Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle on Britain's experimental/industrial scene, 23 Skidoo pursued an improvisational fusion of ethnicdrumming and post-punk dance on their few recordings of the early '80s. Named after a mysterious Illuminati phrase that appeared in the work of Aleister Crowley, William Burroughs and filmmaker Julian Biggs, 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.
In 1982, 23 Skidoo released the mini-LP _Seven Songs_ and the _Tearing Up the Plans_ EP for the Fetish label (also home to recordings by Throbbing Gristle and Clock DVA).

After replacing their nominal rhythm section with bassist Sketch (who shared the trio's aesthetic), the band continued with 1983's _The Culling Is Coming_ and 1984's _Urban Gamelan_. Their varied influences and occasionally sublime sound confused many critics and listeners, who expected all industrial groups to be as loud and chaoticas the emerging Test Dept. or Einsturzende Neubaten. Even after disbanding in 1984 however, 23 Skidoo continued recording together sporadically during the rest of the decade, and the quartet -- the Turnbulls plus Catlin and Sketch -- formed their own Ronin label in 1989. Though no material from the band appeared in the '90s, they did several remixes and recorded for advertisers including Nike, Wrangler, and Smirnoff. Finally, in 2000, 23 Skidoo released a new, self-titled album for Virgin.

I still think that if you look for a number you will find it everywhere. So what if all those things are related to the number 23? What is the relationship between them?

The number 17 is also extremely important and fundamental to the universe. Look closely...you'll see the number 17 everywhere. (While you're at it, check out the number 56.......)

May I suggest that the number 1 is omnipresent and of greater cosmic significance than all your silly other numbers.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

There used to be a sci-fi, conspiracy type of radio show that came on in my town on sundays, once they did an entire show about the "23" phenomenon.  How 23 is the chaos number and whatnot.  Kinda interesting, but i don't think I buy it.  :grin:
