From genre-defying to genre-defining, over the last 25 years SKiN GRAFT Records has curated a collection of music that would seem at home nowhere else. SKiN GRAFT initially sprang to life in 1986 as a punk-infused comix zine, but with a move to Chicago in 1991, SKiN GRAFT reinvented itself as a record label, arriving fully formed as a quirky, aesthetically-driven powerhouse serving up action-oriented sounds to astonish. Now headquartered in Vienna, Austria, armed with shipping facilities over Mid-America and partnered hand in fist with Redeye Worldwide, SKiN GRAFT continues to upend conventions and confound expectations. The goose is cooked.
