This is 'Phase Two' of the Throbbing Gristle / Mute reissue campaign. It is the dark heart. It is Conrad's trip up the Congo. 'Phase One' showed us the pillars and foundations and now we get the dressing and design. The Throbbing Gristle story will continue to inspire and intrigue those with curiosity and a thirst for the different. The story has many chapters and these three documents are some of its most important.
The United States had The Velvet Underground, the U.K. had Throbbing Gristle. If this is indeed your first time to approach their music this is indeed the perfect place to start but be warned as if they get under your skin you will never be able to let them go wherever your life takes you.
