Skinny Puppy: Oh, this is a good one. Sort of. I was at a friend's house in high school, and he asked if I wanted to borrow a CD. I didn't have a CD player then, but I looked at his CDs, and there was this band, Skinny Puppy. I didn't know a thing about them, except that their name intrigued me. He put the CD on, and we listened to a couple tunes. Interesting stuff.
About a week later, I was at a party for the music department where my dad works, and I was talking with one of the grad students, probably, about music I was into or getting into, and I mentioned that I'd heard some Skinny Puppy recently and liked it. The director of the electronic music studio overheard me and came over to chat, and told me he'd give my dad some tapes for me. The two of us spoke fairly often after that, and that is how I got into industrial music - about the last way and place I'd have expected that to happen!
