deep down trauma hounds run to corrode
SKINNY PUPPY. Barren loveless world of pure id. Theater and music bleed together to form a hyper-charged Grand Guignol. Strip your senses bare. Carve your politics to ribbon, leaving only tattered nerve endings and viscera.
All of their most important works are still in print (and easy enough to get). So if you don't already have their '85-'92 output then get your ass in gear. Money extremely well spent.
Here are a number of live shows posted on mr. youtube that I've put together as individual playlists. This footage alone makes that site worth its bandwidth.
- Mind: the Perpetual Intercourse Tour in Horst, Netherlands, 10/12/1986
- Head Trauma Tour in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 5/07/1988
- Last Rights Tour in Dallas, U.S.A., 6/26/92
- Mythrus Tour in Manchester, England, 8/15/07
