Throbbing Gristle - "24 Hours" (Cassette Version) (Industrial Records) 1980





T.G. were always at their best in a live environment, no performance being exactly the same, each 'song' in a different version. Therefor

I cannot pick out one of these cassettes as superior to the other, all are superb live documents of a band at their peak, making a type of music that was never heard before; this is (non) musical history in the making.
listening to 24 hours of T.G. is never boring, and is a thoroughly recommended pastime. I wouldn't give the same recommendation for listening to 24 Hours of Dire Straits for example......in fact that very thought gives me suicidal, or even genocidal, urges. Why Knopfler hasn't been tried for crimes against humanity I'll never know!!?
Limited to just 50 numbered copies, each one personalized to the buyer and dated. Each copy is unique with hand-made collages on each of the primary (signed) information card. Each set also came with three colour-copied inserts (colour copies were very expensive and rare in 1980 when these were made). One featured an informal shot of the band while another was a collage by G P-O of the proposed "Industrial Records HQ". Copies also contained 2 full-sized b&w original photos: one a classic press shot and the other an informal image of the band being interviewed (by a small radio station in US). Some copies came with two cassettes of interviews,.....IRCA and IRCB,included below after IRC26.
Each set retailed for 88 UK pounds (for UK) or 99 UK pounds rest of the world (postage paid).
This is, by far, the most collectible of all official TG-releases.

Could you re-up IRC19? The mega download doesn't seem to work for that one (just keeps saying "starting"). Thanks, awesome blog by the way

Mr Fab said...

Oh my GAWD, Johnny! Do you actually have one of these, or you just have the files? Must have taken ages to digitize it all. I doff my cap to you sir.

Jonny Zchivago said...

IRC19 now reupped to Ubuntu one.
I'll slowly do unbuntu uploads for all of 'em. I know some of you out there can't do the Mega encryption thang!

Jonny Zchivago said...

I Don't do interviews Mr Fab. But thanks for the doffin of the cap.

punchup said...

Continue! C'est le grand panard!!!

Tesla said...

Thanks for taking the time to do this - what an absolute chap. :)

Jonny Zchivago said...

Thanks Tesla; you specialize in free energy technology,I specialize in Free Throbbing Gristle technology. Fair swap.

peter maloney said...

Hey Mr...remember me? I'm mr Housewives sold Ice As Chicken...GREAT BLOG.. I was at the TG Centro Iberico gig and have been searching for that recording for years....now I'm in pig heaven!..and you have the sir Alick 45..fuck me!..

Lawrence Burton said...

By the way, you do know that Knopfler was at one of these gigs and apparently loved it? Just mentioning it because I thought it was funny that you mentioned him.

Anonymous said...

Jeez. Thanks for this, and thanks for what you do.

narcosislabs said...

Awesome post! Much appreciated.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Hi Peter,
yeah cause i remember you. Housewives sold ice as... is still doing the rounds, and will be repromoted soon, with the Year Zero relaunch.it got a few plays on US Radio this year.
Glad you found your TG gig,had no idea it was so rare,i was wrong.
And a Sir Alick and the phaser fan to boot!
There may ne a new Mark Chapman LP htis year needeing your trademark art on its cover.
Cheers,
JZ

Jonny Zchivago said...

Hi Lawrence,
yes its hilarious that Knopfler was at a TG gig, but not unexpected.We get these bland musicians turning up all the time at good gigs.Like Springsteen was a regular at Suicide gigs in the 70's.They are decent chaps but make god awful music!

Thank you Jonny, thakn youthankyouthankyou !!!!!!!!! Fantastic posts, I cannot wait to hear.Thans for all the hard work in the last weeks.Not only the music but also your graet comments/texts on them.
The internet is a far better place thanks DIY(2).
(Could you upload the mega files from TG to ubuntuone or the like? I cannot open mega)
Thank you, very best wishes,
Michael

Jonny Zchivago said...

Thanks Michael.
I will be reupping all to Ubuntu one, but you have to be patient.I used Mega because i already had the files stored on there. IRRC 02_08 and 19 arre alresdy on Ubuntu, so you can start there.

peter said...

Hey! This is amazing, thank you so much. I just went though and downloaded all the ones that worked. The ones that DID NOT work for me:

7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26.

Not sure why some of the Mega links are working and some are not loading at all... I will wait until all of them are uploaded to Ubuntu! Can't wait! :D

Jonny Zchivago said...

Yeah Mega is shite! Its encrypted, but, too well encrypted. Too clever by half again!
Patience is a virtue.

Anonymous said...

This is amazing - thank you! Apologies if this is a stupid question but I can't see number 23, yet Peter in a comment above says that he was having trouble with it. Has it been removed altogether?!

JK

Andy T said...

I used to have a full box of these, but they got lost or stolen, many moons ago.
Great to find them again, many thanks for your time and effort, absolutely brilliant work.
As an old mac use I can't use mega either unfortunately :(
The ones I can't get are 17 and 20-26.
I realise IRC23 is posted separately.
I've waited nearly 30 years to hear these again so am happy to be patient.
Cheers, Andy T.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Hi Andy,
I'm slowly getting round to putting it all on Ubuntu. Sit tight, and it'll be all available in a couple of weeks.
Cheers.

Jonny Zchivago said...

All the way up to IRC22 are now ubuntu'ed as of 20/03/2014.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Jonny Zchivago said...

Hi all.
All the Mega links have been updated now, complete with encryption keys included in the link.

Ultracactus said...

Thank you so much for this upload, essential stuff for sure. Stupid question maybe, but did you actually own one of those set ?
Keep going Jonny, your work is incredible, cheers from south France.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Now that'd be telling....Thing was there was a shop in Leicester that sold the individual live cassettes...Ultima Thule.That and i knew a man who did have the set....now sensibly sold of course.
Where in the South of France are you then? I'm near Beziers/Montpellier.

Ultracactus said...

I was expecting this kind of story, a chance that you kept a trace of it !
I'm in the very north of Montpellier too !

Ultracactus said...

Is there a chance to meet at any kind of music event soon ? Or did you prefer to stay anonymous (and I could totaly undertstand it) ?

Jonny Zchivago said...

Yeah,don't mind.Of course it depends where,and what. South of France-ish.

six said...

is it possible for you to reupload irc 19? it says "temporary error" when you download it on mega, and on megasync it says it's been temporarily blocked

Jonny Zchivago said...

Hi Six, bloody hell you are correct! I'll re-up the fucker in the morning.Sit tight.

Lee Rockabilly freelance writer said...

hi, what an amazing blog. thank you for all of your hard work in getting this stuff uploaded especially the TG/IR material.

Would there by any chance of re-uploading cassette 19 of TG24 please as its down on mega?

Thanks in advance

Jonny Zchivago said...

ok Lee Rockabilly, always having trouble with file 19!!!!?......i'll move it to the reliable google drive today. Chris and Cosey keep trying to block me....and failing....you can get these same files on Ubuweb by the way as they copied them off me....what goes around comes around as they say?

HOLY MOLEY!
My experience of TG has been pretty much limited to 20 Jazz Funk Greats but the sheer enormity of this felt irresistible - and boy!! am I glad I've dipped my toe into this particularly putrid pond. I'm hearing things that are frying my eardrums- 24 hours of it is not enough!
Thank you so much for posting!

Well, there are quite a few hours MORE on here if you put throbbing gristle in the search box.
