Skinny Puppy is a Canadian industrial music group formed in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1982. The group is widely considered to be one of the founders of the industrial rock and electro-industrial genres. Initially envisioned as an experimental side project by cEvin Key (Kevin Crompton) while he was in the new wave band Images in Vogue,Skinny Puppy evolved into a full-time project with the addition of vocalist Nivek Ogre (Kevin Ogilvie).
Skinny Puppy is noted for theatrical and controversial live performances which blend performance art with music.
Ogre once remarked that touring was, for himself, like “dating hydrogen peroxide“, referencing the numerous injuries which he would acquire over the course of touring.
Skinny Puppy releases have charted in North America and Europe, and their influence on industrial and electronic music is considerable.
Widely considered originators of a unique sound and live performance style, Skinny Puppy are also known as pioneers of the industrial rock and electro-industrial genres.
