The return of Industrial Records
In typical Throbbing Gristle style the announcement that Industrial Records is to be re-activated was made in a short news release via the label’s website.
Industrial Records hereby announces it’s official re-activation.
IR is the sole representative of, and ONLY official label representing and releasing records by Throbbing Gristle.
TG’s contract with Mute/EMI expired in June 2010, and despite a number of other offers and proposals, all four members of TG elected to re-start Industrial Records to re-release the IR/TG catalogue and the final TG studio album ‘Desertshore’ along with other archival recordings.
IR has purchased ALL the remaining warehouse stock of the Mute Records editions of TG recordings.

Each title will be an edition of just 2000 copies.
