"Science for the satanic citizen" (1990) is Leaether Strip's 2nd full length establishing the Danish artist as leading act on the cult Zoth Ommog / Music Research label. Founded on January 13, 1988 by Claus Larsen, Leaether Strip's influence has been most felt in the electronic body music and electro-industrial genres. The project was one of the earliest and most prominent acts on Germany's now defunct Zoth Ommog record label.
