PIAS

You may wonder how these legendary Canadians ended up in a collection series celebrating 40 years of PIAS? Well quite simple: Scarface, a now discontinued sub-label of Play It Again Sam!, brought the first Skinny Puppy albums to the Benelux/EU. “Remission” (the 1984 debut) and “Bites”, which had also been released on vinyl by Scarface when the Scarface label was born, 1985. The single “Dig It” however was released on vinyl by PIAS itself in 1986, as was the album “The Perpetual Intercourse” from which the latter single was taken.

The fact that these popular and groundbreaking Canadians should not be missing from the PIAS reissue series is about more clear than our sea water has been for a long time now. Later, Nettwerk Europe would be founded and work closely with PIAS, Nettwerk was the band's Canadian parent label. The four featured songs, which in my opinion could and especially should have been many more, on this release are the brilliant “Smothered Hope”, the equally brilliant “Addiction (first dose)”, the again brilliant “Dig It” and the more than brilliant and widely known “Assimilate” (Skinny Puppy's monster hit in the alternative circuit with good taste, so to speak).

Couldn't this vinyl be genius? Indeed it is! The electro industrial and even gothic slant of their music was slightly different from what we were used to here on the European mainland in those years but that does not make it any less good, on the contrary. Afterwards, the group went in a more crossover direction and the band around Nivek Ogre and cEvin Key is still 'alive and kicking' in 2023 although they are touring for one last time, exclusively in America. But believe me, this is and was, as far as I'm concerned, their most relevant and best period! Go get it! Once more! So that you may never lose your good taste.
