Skinny Puppy – Stairs And Flowers (US 12″)

Well Happy Halloween from the Capital of Gothica, Whitby !

I type this from the Bed of delightful B&B nursing the mother of all hangovers. I’ve been going to Whitby a good few years now and have made many great friends. The place itself is warm (not literally) and very accepting of the black invasion.

So thanks to Mike B for supplying me with a suitably scary song. I have a long, love affair with Skinny Puppy and their brand of scary industrial. I defy anyone to listen to “Fritter (Stella’s Home)” off VIVIsect VI with the lights off! This is from 1987 and features dancing, breakbeats (even more so on the DEF mix) and horror film samples. It does seem to plod along a bit with the best scares coming from the “Too Far Gone” version. “Chainshaw” is nice, pounding and classic Skinny Puppy. The remix of “Assimilate” sounds a bit cluttered, too much going on. Trent Reznor was busy taking notes!
