About this item

Throbbing Gristle revisits 'TGCD1', long out of print, now available on CD for the first time in 25 years and on vinyl for the first time ever via Mute. This release includes the original sleeve notes by all the members of the band, uncovering the story and ethos behind TG’s independent record label, Industrial Records.

Formed in 1975, Throbbing Gristle, aka Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson (1955-2010), Cosey Fanni Tutti, and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (1950-2020), fully delivered on punk’s failed promise to explore extreme culture as a way of sabotaging systems of control. Their impact on music, culture, and the arts has been immeasurable and still felt today.

Originally released on Mute’s imprint, The Grey Area, in 1986, 'TGCD1' comprises forty-two minutes of studio recordings captured at their own Industrial Records Studio on a TEAC 8-Track in 1979. Initially serving as an exclusive piece of unreleased material for TG’s first-ever CD release, the record's dark and harsh droning sound stands as a significant chapter in their discography, showcasing the band during, arguably, their most formative era.
