Late Night Music Club feat. Skinny Puppy

Socio-Poilitcal activism in music is nothing new, but Skinny Puppy had their own special way of bringing it to the viewer through very powerful and often extremely graphic imagery. One could not walk away from a SP concert without knowing their standpoint on an array of subject matter from Right Wing Extremism, Animal Cruelty, and the growing power of the Military Industrial Complex.

If you only heard Puppy once, you would immediately recognize them the second time. Their fusion of dark vocal effects, metal, electronica, and noise core took the world of industrial music by storm during it's infancy.

I was never lucky enough to see Puppy in their prime in the late 80s and early 90s, but did manage to get the closest thing - their Candian reunion concert DVD The The Greater Wrong Of The Right.

Puppy's final album with the late D.R. Gottel was quite the departure from some of their earlier work, but the images and messages were still there and still distinct as when the Back and Forth tape series came out in the early 80s.

Here's one of my favorite tracks off the LP The Process:
