The Horrorist Live in Montreal this Weekend

I will be performing live this Friday night in Montreal, Canada. The event is officially called “The Horrorist – présenté par F.U.B.A.R. – le 11 octobre”. The venue is Le Belmont (4483 Boulevard St-Laurent, Montreal, Quebec H2W 1Z8). In the early 2000s I performed often in Montreal and I also had a chance to play the first Festival Kinetik. I will be spending a few days there and watchful eyes can expect some surprises. The promoter has and empty private apartment for me in a nice neighborhood and I am spending a few days there. I will also spend some time with my Graphic Designer Maurice Roy. If you come to the show be sure to say hello in person if you can!

Skinny Puppy – Addiction (Dog House Remix)

One of the best records in my collection is the Nettwerk Sound Sampler Volume Two. For a long time I was one of the few people I knew who owned the music on it. Today you can find all the tracks on YouTube. While I’m no longer so special it’s good you can all hear the Dog House Mix of Skinny Puppy’s Addiction. Great strings and a wild vocal performance get paired with a clear Roland TR-808 taking what could never be a dance track exactly to the dancefloor. This is one of my favorite pieces of music for many reasons. Desperate, deranged, talking in my sleep again.

“best ever (and.. 808 ridden!) rendition of the track by Skinny Puppy released in 1988 on the second Nettwerk sampler “A Food for Thought”" – states1024
