Complete your Throbbing Gristle collection. This is THROBBING GRISTLE at their effective best - combining ostensibly calm, warm ripples of sound with cold, clinical ice-pick-sharp shards of noise. weaving a tapestry of chill terror around itself, swathing itself in the sweat-soaked clothing of the terminally sick. Urge To Kill" comes next, a plunging, churningly simple rhythmic piece through which GENESIS half-shouts, half-speaks his words, splicing something as innocuous as Humpty Dumpty with his tales of violent murder. It's so close to the album version I can only think it was either pre-recorded & played unaccompanied here, or that the album version was taken from the same live tape. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

Throbbing Gristle were noted for their live performances, which were often experimental and quite different from their pre-recorded work. In addition to studio albums, a large number of recordings of live shows were released, of varying sound quality. A concise history of Throbbing Gristle and COUM Transmissions can be found in Simon Ford's book Wreckers of Civilisation (ISBN 1-901033-60-0). A 25 CD boxed set, TG24, documenting many live Throbbing Gristle performances was released in December 2002.
