The return of Industrial Records

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. The first batch for sale comprises of the last remaining copies of the original editions of TGV DVD box-set, Part Two – Endless Not CD and double vinyl LP along with bargain priced ‘end-of-line’ titles including – The Second Annual Report / D.O.A. The Third & Final Report / Heathen Earth / 20 Jazz Funk Greats.

The first material to be released by IR is due 26th September2011, and includes a series of Deluxe Vinyl Editions of the following TG titles:

The Second Annual Report
D.O.A. The Third & Final Report
Heathen Earth
20 Jazz Funk Greats
Throbbing Gristle’s Greatest Hits

Each title will be an edition of just 2000 copies.

Chris Carter has re-mastered the audio, and the LP’s come packaged with an 8 page full colour booklet featuring some previously unpublished photos, press reviews from the time, and other visual ephemera from the Industrial Records archive.

In the meantime IR are offering the Mute label releases of ”ËœThe Second Annual Report’, ”ËœD.O.A. The Third & Final Report’, ”ËœHeathen Earth’, and ”Ëœ20 Jazz Funk Greats’ at just £4 per CD from the IR Shop

Phil Newall is from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.

  2. I believe this site has got some really superb info for everyone :D. “Experience is not what happens to you it’s what you do with what happens to you.” by Aldous Huxley.

  3. Thank you for sharing superb informations. Your website is very cool. I’m impressed by the details that you¡¦ve on this blog. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for more articles. You, my friend, ROCK! I found simply the information I already searched all over the place and simply couldn’t come across. What a perfect site.

  4. I¡¦ve recently started a site, the information you provide on this web site has helped me tremendously. Thanks for all of your time & work.

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  6. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.

  7. Great site, caters for the alternative music community and I especially like the stuff on Genesis P Orridge as well as the anarchist wing of the Punk scene. Keep up the good work x
