Skinny Puppy

Skinny Puppy is an industrial band, formed in 1982 by cEvin Key[?] (Kevin Crompton) and Nivek Ogre[?] (Kevin Ogilvie), adding keyboardist Wilhelm Schroeder for their debut LP, Bites before replacing him with Dwayne Goettel[?] (see 1982 in music).

Bites earned the band a fanbase, which they increased with Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse (1986 in music), Cleanse, Fold and Manipulate (1987 in music) and VIVIsectVI (1988 in music). During the late 1980s, the band members began working on various side projects. Tension began to run high between the band members during and after the completion of Last Rights, and it became increasingly difficult for them to continue working together. This, combined with creative differences and drug problems, resulted in Goettel's disappearance with the master tapes for the forthcoming album, The Process. He was found dead of a heroin overdose in his parents home in 1995 (1995 in music). The remaining band members completed the album for released in 1996, and then disbanded (see 1996 in music).

As of 2003, Key and Ogre have recently re-teamed, along with collaborators such as Danny Carey of Tool, to produce a new album under the Skinny Puppy name.

Key continues his musical efforts in the bands Download and Tear Garden[?], while Ogre collaborates with KMFDM[?] and Pigface[?].
