Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Producers: David Ogilvie, Cevin Key, Tom Ellard, Alien Jourgensen.
  • Engineers include: David Ogilvie, Cevin Key, Ken Marshall.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • THE SINGLES COLLECTION collects tracks originally appearing between 1984 and 1991. Released the same day as a companion volume, B-SIDES COLLECTION, THE SINGLES is a non-chronological, yet curiously cohesive collection of industrial dance music. On early Puppy albums, individual songs tended to be overrun by the powerful vitriol of the record as a whole. On later ones, the interesting tracks were occasionally obscured by less interesting filler material. This collection draws together a number of tracks and, in doing so, gives each one the attention it deserves while simultaneously maintaining a level of constancy not heard since 1988's VIVISECT VI.
  • "Worlock Ed," a remix of Worlock from RABIES, is quintessential Skinny Puppy--Charles Manson samples, guitar riffs from "Helter Skelter," and Nivek Ogre's strangled, buried vocals. "Tin Omen," also from that album, features the band at its most Ministry-like, all clanging guitars and pummeling drum machines (no surprise given that the co-producer was Al Jourgensen). "Censor" opens with a whirl of synthesized distortion before mutating into a rather twisted, jerking dance beat. "Stairs and Flowers" is a slowly morphing metallic beast, that comes complete with heavily-amplified groans and cries, a more distorted vocal than usual, and weirdly stately sounding string samples.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (3/00, p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A good primer for the more squeamish to their world of electro-self-mutilation..."
