Throbbing Gristle

Throbbing Gristle

Throbbing Gristle – Chris Carter, Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson (1955-2010), Cosey Fanni Tutti and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (1950-2020) – formed in 1975, and for the next six years they fully delivered on punk’s failed promise to explore extreme culture as a way of sabotaging systems of control. The band released crucial records such as The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle (1977), D.O.A The Third And Final Report Of Throbbing Gristle (1978), and 20 Jazz Funk Greats (1979) and were infamously named “wreckers of civilisation” by the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn in 1976.

The band reformed in 2004 for a series of live performances and produced several albums, including TG Now (2004), Mutant TG and Part Two: The Endless Not (2007) before disbanding in 2010. Their impact on music, culture and the arts has been immeasurable, and still felt today.
