Two Out-of-Print Skinny Puppy Albums Getting Reissued on Vinyl

Skinny Puppy Vinyl Reissues

Two long out-of-print, hard-to-find records from legendary industrial band Skinny Puppy are getting repressed on 150-gram vinyl. Due October 13th, these are must-haves for fans of the band. They are both available now for pre-order on Amoeba.com and they'll ship FREE to U.S. addresses!

Skinny Puppy Remission Remission, the band's 1984 EP for Nettwerk, was originally available on vinyl and cassette before being released as a CD in the '90s -- the last time this crucial EP was widely released for sale. The 2017 vinyl reissue features the original tracklisting from 1984. (Later releases on other formats included additional tracks, which is not the case here.) In 1987, the Remission EP was packaged with the band's debut full-length, Bites, as Bites and Remission.
Skinny Puppy Bites

Fittingly, Bites is the second release from the progenitors of EBM and electro-industrial. First released in 1985, the album featured the band's first hit of sorts, "Assimilate," which includes a sample from the 1976 film Marathon Man. Apart from the combined Bites and Remission reissue, the LP wasn't available in a new version again until 1993, when it was released on CD billed to Hell-O Death Day, the pseudonym the band used while touring as the opening act for Chris & Cosey.

It's Cheaper Used: Classic and Out-of-Print Goth & Industrial Titles in Stock at Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Aaron Detroit, June 9, 2010 05:03pm | Post a Comment
Looking to stock back up on some dark classics? Maybe looking to try something you overlooked long ago? Well, if you’re a fan of classic Industrial or Goth, or just looking to be adventurous, we’ve got some great deals on some hand-picked, used and out-of-print titles for you in our little dark corner of the Goth/Industrial section at Amoeba Music Hollywood*.

Front 242 Tyranny >For You<
Ten years after the group’s genesis, Front 242 released their most commercially successful album with their 1991 major-label debut, Tyranny >For You<. Though not as solid as the band’s 1988 essential Front by Front , Tyranny is a relentless and charged slab full of EBM bangers including “Moldavia,” “Tyranny (for You),” and the club hit “Rhythm of Time, “ which some may recall from a memorable scene in the 1992 camp classic film Single White Female. The album has surprisingly aged very well and sounds pretty damn great nearly 20 years later -- the slow-burn “Sacrifice,” the minimal pulse and melodic sway of “Soul Manager,” or the chaotic blasts of hidden track “Untitled” (there are 3 unlisted ‘hidden’ tracks here –every bit as intense as the rest of the album). Listening to this album now, really makes me wish some youngins would mine these sounds again. Tyranny >For You< is currently out of print on CD but Amoeba Music Hollywood has it in stock used for just $4.99!*

Skinny Puppy's Last Rights Gets Deluxe Vinyl Treatment

Posted by Aaron Detroit, November 30, 2009 06:00pm | Post a Comment

Skinny Puppy
As of this month, fans of Industrial Godfathers Skinny Puppy (without
whom there would be no Marilyn Manson or Nine Inch Nails), will no longer have to shell out $200+ for the incredibly scarce vinyl edition of the band’s last (and arguably best) “classic-era” LP, Last Rights. This past August, the band polled their most rabid fans on Litany.net, asking which Puppy LP they’d most like to see reissued on vinyl. Last Rights won out as the fan favorite with nearly half of the vote, leading the band to strike a deal with their former label Nettwerk to reissue the album. The resultant release (out now) is lovingly repackaged with I, Braineater’s (AKA Jim Cummins) original artwork on a gatefold sleeve, while the audio itself has been mastered specifically for vinyl and spread across two LPs cut at 45rpm for maximum mental deranging. The package also includes a bonus CD of the entire album.
