Favourites: Skinny Puppy

I saw this great article on the Domino. It was a legendary club that closed before I was old enough to go to clubs, but I remember hearing it talked about on the radio and I remember a lot of the bands that were part of that scene.

Skinny Puppy were definitely part of that goth industrial scene in the mid to late 80s in Toronto. I remember when I first heard Nine Inch Nails years later and instantly thought. "Wow. That sounds a lot like Skinny Puppy's sound."

"Smothered Hope" from 1984's Remission.

"Assimilate" and "The Choke" from 1985's Bites.

"Dig It" from 1986's Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse.
