Skinny Puppy – Remission
Skinny Puppy is a Canadian industrial music group formed in Vancouver in 1982. The group is widely considered to be one of the founders of the industrial rock and electro-industrial genres. Inspired by the music of Suicide, SPK, Cabaret Voltaire, Chrome, Throbbing Gristle, Nocturnal Emissions, Portion Control, and The Legendary Pink Dots, music which had been accessible to the band primarily via tape exchange, Skinny Puppy experimented with analog and digital recording techniques, composing multi-layered music with synthesizers, drum machines, acoustic percussion, tape loops, samplers, and conventional rock music instruments to create what they called “audio sculpture”. Their extensive use of sampling from horror films and radio broadcasts served to “clarify or obscure” song meanings, and they applied liberal amounts of distortion and other effects to Ogre’s vocals, which are often delivered as a stream of consciousness. Remission is their 1984 EP, their record label debut and first release with Nettwerk.
