This week's episode of Talking 80s Music fell on Halloween. Despite being Martin's favorite holiday, it's also the excuse he used to delve into the often creepy and disturbing side of rock music by focusing on industrial powerhouse Skinny Puppy. We featured their classic tracks "Smothered Hope," "One Time One Place," "Shadowcast" and "Tin Omen" in an effort to cover their career.
Still keeping our fingers crossed (and knocking on wood) as it must be said that the show has been sounding better technically. Thought of throwing in a bunch of Halloween sounds but... this wasn't an glossy show. We considered a few live tracks but the bass end of the songs we looked at were almost non-existent yet oh so necessary for showcasing a band like this.
