Although industrial music legends Throbbing Gristle lost member Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson last year, the remaining members are continuing work on ending the band on a high note.
As their website lets on, the band still plans to finish their final album as well as re-launch the band’s old label and reissue material.
Throbbing Gristle’s contract with Mute/EMI has ended, so the band has decided to bring back Industrial, the label they started in the late 70s. Because of the change, the band has purchased Mute’s stock of Throbbing Gristle’s releases which they have begun to sell on their website.
The band plans to reissue a lot of their old albums as deluxe vinyl editions. The Third & Final Report, Heathen Earth, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, and Throbbing Gristle’s Greatest Hits will each be re-mastered by Throbbing Gristle’s Chris Carter and limited to 2000 copies. The albums will also be available on digital download and CD as part of the TG Time Capsule series.
Throbbing Gristle are also finishing their final album, a reinterpretation of Nico’s Desertshore which they hope to release early next year.
