God’s Gift (Maggot – Skinny Puppy hit the road in 2014)

Nothing says Happy Halloween like a tour announcement from Skinny Puppy. Our good friend at …HangTheDJ broke the news and now we have the full tour locked and loaded. Skinny Puppy has put on some of the best live shows I have seen. The video and light accompaniment with the music and Ogre usually dressed in some out of this world garb are a delight to the senses. Whether they are performing brain surgery or a vivisection you will not be able to take your eyes off of them. So much fake blood (I really hope it’s fake).

It was thought earlier in the year that a Kings   Monsters of Industrial Music type tour was in the works. I know that Front Line Assembly were trying to make it work but it was really up to Skinny Puppy. Apparently they have decided to go it alone.

It will be the perfect time of year to break out the black leather jacket. Skinny Puppy hit Chicago on a Friday night (sweet!) February 21st. TICKETS on sale 11/1

Watch this classic video…if you dare

I really like how on their newest album WEAPON has returned to the classic Skinny Puppy sound.  They spent some time trying to evolve into more of a modern dance band in recent years but I think WEAPON is their best in a long time.

Enjoy  illisiT from Skinny Puppy’s latest release “WEAPON”

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. spoolgoinground@yahoo.com My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ.

I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage and interviewed Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more: http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/spool-going-round/about-spool-going-round.html#ixzz1Bfx7V0ug

    I am a huge Skinny Puppy fan and will definitely be attending their concert at Webster Hall in NYC on Valentine’s Day! (How fitting!) I’ll be the busty girl with the medium length platinum hair pushing her way to the front of the stage! Rock on!
