40TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT AT ROUGH TRADE NYC
Q&A AND SIGNING WITH GENESIS BREYER P-ORRIDGE ON
THE SECOND ANNUAL REPORT, 20 JAZZ FUNK GREATS AND THE TASTE
OF TG REISSUES OUT NOVEMBER 24
Mute and Rough Trade are pleased to announce a special
Q&A and signing with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle at Rough
Trade NYC on November 24. Moderating the discussion will be T. Cole Rachel of
The Creative Independent. The Brooklyn event follows a similar occasion held earlier
this month at Rough Trade East in London
with Throbbing Gristle’s Cosey Fanni Tutti and Chris Carter. Further
information regarding the Brooklyn Q&A and signing is available here.
The Rough Trade event coincides with the first in a series
of reissues on Mute, starting with the 40th anniversary of their debut album
release, The Second Annual Report.
On November 24, The Second Annual Report, presented as a
limited edition white vinyl release in the original packaging and also on
double CD, and 20 Jazz Funk Greats, on green vinyl and double CD, will be
released along with, The Taste Of TG: A Beginner’s Guide to Throbbing Gristle
with an updated track listing that will include “Almost A Kiss” (from 2007’s
Part Two: Endless Not). This will be the first time The Taste Of TG has been
available on vinyl and will be presented on double red vinyl alongside a CD and
digital release. For those not attending the Rough Trade event, stream and
order the reissues via the links below.
The Second Annual Report, the first album from Throbbing
Gristle, came out originally on November 4, 1977 and launched the career of one
of the most politically and sonically antagonistic bands of all time.
Throbbing Gristle are Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy'
Christopherson (who sadly passed away on November 25, 2010), Cosey Fanni Tutti
and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Their impact on music, culture and the arts is
immeasurable and still felt today.
November’s anniversary releases will be followed by further
catalog releases in 2018.
D.o.A. The Third And Final Report
Part Two: Endless Not
Of Dead Souls
Journey Through A Body
In The Shadow Of The Sun
2017 saw Throbbing Gristle’s catalog available on streaming
services for the first time. Mute and Throbbing Gristle will continue the
reissues series, creating previously unreleased box sets and making available
long out-of-print and important pieces of work.
