Throbbing Gristle - "Industrial records Studio,Teac 8-track recording,18/03/1979" (Bootleg)

This recording from March 18th 1979 was essentially what became "CD1",released by Mute in 1986.Except, that this is a superior version,with less production values,basically a raw mix done on the day of the recording session.
It's kind of a "Heathern Earth" from 1979,but without the invited audience of TG brown nosers, and not much in the way of vocals. All mixed in the melee  are parts of other TG tunes,mostly Carter's sequencer bits from the more popular tracks.And lots of Gristliser,as featured on the artwork 'wot I did'.
The files were provided by that man Stephen Surreal again!
  • Bass Guitar, Vocals, Violin, Effects [Gristliser] – Genesis P-Orridge
  • Guitar, Cornet, Effects [Gristliser] – Cosey Fanni Tutti
  • Synth, Drum Programming [Rhythms], Tape [Tapes] – Chris Carter (2)
  • Tape [Tapes], Cornet, Computer – Peter Christopherson
Tracks:

1 - Untitled. (42:11)

Yes went to see TG 4 or 5 times back in the day but only recently realised that Chris Carter had prerecorded the beats at home and the rest were playing along to a backing track. Not that it was in any sense a dead performance what with Genesis belowing into the mic and Cosey doing her slide guitar business but feel slightl cheated it wasn't all live - do you think it is too late to get my money back?

Yeah but from what ive heard (never attended a concert as i was 5-10 yrs old) its not like chris pressed play & checked out. Ive always been a bit bored by live spk tapes for this reason though, while their studio recordings are subtle & magnificent. Thanks for everything.

Glad I managed to get this to you,it does beat the crap outta CD1 ! (when CD1 came out,I was rather bemused at it's basic lack lustre nature & overproduction)

Jonny Zchivago said...

Absolutely Stephan.I blame it on Carter.

Saw these guys live once, insane, incredible, before the gig they were standing outside the building dressed in orange, playing percussion instruments and chanting hara krishna hare rama :)
