Skinny Puppy

Skinny Puppy formed in 1982 as a side project for Kevin Crompton in Vancouver. Crompton was dissatisfied with the pop direction of the band he was in, Images in Vogue, and began Skinny Puppy with the intention of doing something more compelling and experimental.Crompton had already created the name for the project and recorded several songs when he asked Kevin Graham Ogilvie to join. Ogilvie had been a roommate of Images in Vogue member Gary Blair Smith and had met Crompton at a party in late 1982. To avoid the confusion of having two people named Kevin in one band, the pair created stage names, with Crompton becoming cEvin Key and Ogilvie becoming Nivek Ogre. Skinny Puppy is unique in it's sound and a milestone in the electronic industrial landscape. A cult act that has it's own sound and has formed a completely unique aesthetics.
