About Skinny Puppy

Vancouver's Skinny Puppy took the somewhat scattershot rage of industrial pioneers like Throbbing Gristle and gave it focus--exploring the endless catalogue of evils of which mankind is capable, all in lyrically graphic detail. Though not as commercially successful as the like-minded if somewhat more rock-oriented Ministry, Skinny Puppy never wavered from their extreme vision. After producing their savage brand of sonic assault for nearly a decade, the band disbanded in 1995 after the heroin overdose death of keyboardist Dwayne Goettel, but reformed in 2000. Skinny Puppy's THE GREATER WRONG OF THE RIGHT album/tour drew the ire of Republicans during the 2004 election for its musical disparagement of President George W. Bush.
