Skinny Puppy is considered to be one of the founders of the electro-industrial genre, has inspired and influenced countless thousands, and has reached audiences all over the globe. When I ran across the opportunity to speak with one of the founders of the band, Cevin Key, and pick his brain; I pounced on the opportunity!
Fear Factory has done quite a bit of touring and I’m sure you guys have a lot of stories from the road. Anything crazy that pops out in your mind that you’d like to share with us? Where do I start? (laughs) (thinks for a moment) I could tell you one recently…we were on tour, and this was in Europe. We were in England and we were going down the O-1 Freeway on our way to the Airport to drop off our drummer’s girlfriend. On the way there at like 3 or 4 O’clock in the morning, our bus driver noticed there was a fire, like a little flame, coming out of the left wheel well. He was like “Oh shit!” So he pulled the bus over, jumped out, grabbed the fire extinguisher, went to go extinguish it out, and as he was doing it the fucking extinguisher ran out! There wasn’t enough in there. The flame started getting bigger and bigger, so the guy runs back inside and says “Every body’s gotta get the fuck off the bus! Get the fuck off the bus!” So, we’re all asleep and so we jump up out of the bunks going, you know “Fire! Fire!”. So, everybody starts grabbing their shit off the bus, like all their backpacks and their belongings, and we all run off the bus and we look over and we’re like “Holy fuck!”. The whole side of the bus was on fire! We’re like “Oh man, our gear and our trailer!” So, thank God the crew at the time was really good because they unhooked the trailer, pushed it back, went into the base, grabbed everybody bags, grabbed everybody’s shit and took it a few feet away. We’re all standing in front of the bus and all of the sudden a tire blows. “Boosh!” We’re all like “It’s blowing up! Aah!” We’re running…but it was just a tire that blew because it got too hot. We’re all watching this fucking thing go up in flames, then all of the sudden we’re like “Where’s Zeke?” Our merch guy, he was passed out in his bunk. So two of our crew guys ran back on the bus, pulled him out into the street. He was still in his…you know, those Europeans they wear those tight, white underwear. We almost forgot about him and he would have fucking burned. The whole fucking bus just burned in flames, gone. Everything was gone.
