Last Rites for Skinny Puppy
Dave Thompson, Alternative Press, 1996
THE RUMOURS BEGAN long before the truth caught up with them. The new Skinny Puppy, the latest Skinny Puppy, the last Skinny Puppy, the Rave-less Raving Puppy. Less than one album into a seven record deal with American, the company was looking to renegotiate the bands contract, dump some assets, spill some blood, lacerate a legend. Ogre quit but no one admitted it, everyone left but nothing was said ... what does happen when a band implodes and nobody notices?
