Industrial band Skinny Puppy demand payment after music is used in Guantánamo torture | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

A Canadian electro-industrial band is asking for thousands of dollars in royalties after learning that the US military used their music to torture prisoners at Guantánamo Bay. Skinny Puppy claim they filed a $666,000 (£368,000) bill with America'd defence department.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Only a fool like Lars Ulrich would approve such use of music.

Industrial Metal Band Skinny Puppy Bills Pentagon for Guantanamo Music - Washington Wire - WSJ

Industrial Metal Band Skinny Puppy Bills Pentagon for Guantanamo Music - Washington Wire - WSJ | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Canadian industrial metal band Skinny Puppy’s music is aggressive, abrasive and in-your-face. But the group’s founder doesn’t think it should be used as a weapon of war.

Skinny Puppy’s  cEvin Key says he has sent the Pentagon a bill for $660,000 after being told that guards at Guantanamo Bay had used the band’s music to torment prisoners.

“To some people it could be a terrible nightmare, but to others it’s just a creative, artistic endeavor that sort of plays with dark writings,” he told Canada’s CTV News on Wednesday.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Smart move.
