1000 SMILING KNUCKLES


- 1991 -

Released in 1991, 1000 Smiling Knuckles was the record that the band always felt was their best effort. It featured the band's final drummer, Barrett Martin, whose sense of rhythm and bombast would help propel the band into its most creatively satisfying period. Knuckles was the tightest played, the most well-crafted and written, and at the time the best recording Skin Yard had yet achieved. It was also the band's bestselling album. These recordings have been completely remastered from the original source material and are available digitally for the very first time.
