Throbbing Gristle with Albrecht/d. ‎– "Music From The Death Factory" (Kinky Beaux Arts) 1976


More pre '77, pre Sleazy, noodlings from a pre-pubescent Throbbing Gristle, plus German Arty type , Albrecht ,D. What the D stands for I could search on the internet, probably Devilishy Artistic, or some other unassuming reference to his genius that would make even Oscar Wilde blush. Albrecht's role is restricted to twiddling a few knobs here and there; especially with Genesis,P,(what does the 'P' stand for?Answers on an envelope,and you get 'Nil Points' for Penis!) in attendance;I shudder to think which 'Knob' was twiddled the most. The main thing that G P.O whips out here, is his Violin, a talent learnt in his public school days, and when fed through our German Artist pal's effects box it seems that Pater never wasted his money. The German connection doesn't end there,as this sounds uncannily like some undiscovered Krautrock out-take, mainly Kluster's back catalogue of out-takes,compressed onto one C-60. Pretty interesting noodlings at that, but this amounts to nothing more than a jam session with a Roland Space Echo. What they needed at this point in their gestation, was Peter Christopherson to give them some much needed focus.

I always thought that the "P" was just the start of the word Porridge. Like a funny way of saying that I guess. But im probably wrong...love your blog by the way. Thanks for the many years worth of dedicated time and energy you've poured into it. Since the demise of (the much missed) Mutant Sounds there's nothing else like it on the intertubes. BB

I think you dropped an apostrophe and meant to say "answer's on an envelope". So is it "postage"? Or maybe just "Post"? Was he Post-Orridge at that point?
