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.

TBC 2018
D.o.A. The Third And Final Report
Heathen Earth
Part Two: Endless Not
Mission Of Dead Souls
Greatest Hits
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.
