How to get rid of a TG album

avisby

In the early eighties I was working in an underground record store. It was the place to go if you wanted a TG record in those days. One day a costumer came in, pulling out a copy of 32nd annual report and start complaining about what a load of crap it was. I was about to let him have his cash back, when the boss broke in, preventing the deal. Instead she started arguing with the angry costumer, clamming that he could get half the money back. The costumer angrily refused when, the guy pulled up a pack of cigarettes lighted up a match and without paying any attention, put back the still burning match in to the matchbox, closing it and putting it down on the counter. A split second later the matchbox exploded, sending a 0,5 m of flames and sparks in to the air. I grabbed a coffee cup and put out the fire. The discussion stoped. \"All right\", my boss said, here are you money! Well TG is a band made in order to course controversy and even arson.

The Left-Hand Path: eMusic’s “Digital Mystery School”

By Robert Phoenix, Contributor

If one were to look at eMusic's spoken-word section from an esoteric perspective, sifting through the speeches and poetry, they would be left with some golden nuggets of wisdom — some darker than others, yet all of them perfect additions to what I call the "digital mystery school." If one were to make a pilgrimage through this virtual temple, sorting through the various levels of initiation and revelation, how would it look? Who would be… more »

They Say All Music Guide

A proper debut of sorts, Second Annual Report includes several versions each (some live) of early Throbbing Gristle standards like “Slug Bait” and “Maggot Death,” as well as an “Industrial Introduction” and the soundtrack work “After Cease to Exist.” The music is relentless, grinding distortion, only occasionally leavened by vocal samples and percussion. – John Bush
