I had the chance to hang out with SKINNER and his buddy Hal at the Wizard's Lair the other day. I was there to check out the SKINNER x MVH "Oblivion Dudes" Ollies which will be a NYCC exclusive.
Here's a little video I put together featuring SKINNER's band UNGOLIANT single "Wretched Mind" For a guy that's not really into DOOM, I have to admit that I like this song. It's hypnotic. Check it out...
SKINNER is an amazing guy and it was awesome to hang out. He's spiritual, positive, geeky, talented, driven and a hustler. He built his home and massive studio/music room through a program for artists. If you haven't noticed, he seems to be everywhere these days doing art shows all around the planet. Most recently an epic show with Alex Pardee in LA called the "Butcher Kings" at Gallery 1988. After NYCC, he's headed to Cuba to hang with the Socialist Artists. He gets shit done that's for sure. Works very hard, but still has time and desire to volunteer to help out under priviledged children. Just hanging out for a few hours listening to him and Hal discuss all their current and upcoming projects was exhausting. He's got a full color art book coming out very soon too. Not to mention he just released his first fucking Doom/Rock album from his band UNGOLIANT. WTF? Dude's on fuego. I first met SKINNER a few years ago before he went full-time as an artist. I'm very impressed what he has done with his career since then.
