Chris Connelly is a Scottish musician who became famous for his industrial music work of the late 1980s and early 1990s, particularly his involvement with the Revolting Cocks, Ministry, The Damage Manual and Murder Inc. He has since established himself as a talented alternative singer/songwriter. His vocal style is often compared to that of Scott Walker and David Bowie.

In 2008, Connelly published a memoir of his early years in the music industry, Concrete, Bulletproof, Invisible, and Fried: My Life As A Revolting Cock (ISBN 0946719950). It describes his professional debut in Finitribe; meeting Al Jourgensen in London; his involvement with the Cocks, Ministry, PTP, Acid Horse, Killing Joke, and Pigface; and the development of his solo career.

In 2014, Connelly started a new project called Cocksure with Jason Novak of Acumen Nation and DJ? Acucrack. He also joined another project with Paul Barker (Ministry, Lead Into Gold) called Bells Into Machines.

    I'm really looking forward to his new album. The three songs I've heard have all been great.

    Finitribe was ace, so were all the Wax Trax! industrial things he got involved with, and his solo stuff is just brilliant. Chris Connelly = genius.

    This guy is brilliant and has already done to music (as a solo artist) what I had intended to do.

    I'm also reading Connelly's book. And as gonzohunter already mentioned, it's a very good read.

    Very under appreciated. I have been a fan for awhile now.

    just finished Connelly's book - very good - thanx for the insight and yes - it is very odd how such a talent who's been involved in such huge projects continues to be overlooked again and again - he keeps pumping out fantastic music

    Hardly any listens... hardly any shouts... I don't understand how an amazing artist like Chris Connelly can be so unknown, especially after how many projects he's been associated with and how huge he was and still is in the Chicago scene.
