Throbbing Gristle se připravují na definitivní odchod projektu

Více než třicetiletá, krkolomná a dlouho přerušovaná cesta projektu Throbbing Gristle se chystá do svého definitivního konce. Po loňském povdzechu českých fanoušků nad zrušeným koncertem a následným úmrtí Petera "Sleazy" Christophersona chystají zbývající členové alespoň dvě povznášející novinky. Tou první je vzkříšení jejich starého, kultovního labelu Industrial Records, který jako vůbec první vtiskl název samotnému žánru propagovaném pod mottem ""industrial music for industrial people". Učinili tak po vyprchání smlouvy s Mute a EMI, odkoupili od nich zbývající desky projektu a chystají jejich velkou reedici. Na 26. září tak plánují vydání deluxe edice alb "The Second Annual Report", "D.O.A", "The Third & Final Report", "Heathen Earth", "20 Jazz Funk Greats" a "Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits". Každé z alb bude remasterováno samotným Chrisem Carterem a vydáno pod limitovaným nákladem 2000 kusů.

Druhou příznivou novinkou je, že i přes Christophersonův odchod kapela dokončí své poslední album. Hudební reinterpretaci osmistopé desky "Desertshore", kterou v roce 1970 natočila jako svou třetí sólovku zpěvačka Nico. Detaily pro vás budeme nadále sledovat.

Kreayshawn Directs Red Hot Chili Peppers Video

Earlier this year, the young Oakland rapper Kreayshawn became the center of about a million online authenticity debates when her "Gucci Gucci" video went viral, and she promptly signed a contract with Columbia. But Kreayshawn also has a history of directing music videos for Bay Area rap figures like Lil B. As MTV reports, Kreayshawn is putting her film-student backstory to good use, as she's directing a new music video for, of all people, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Throbbing Gristle, the long-running and always transgressive industrial music pioneers, lost member Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson last year. And though they're in the process of closing the book on the band, the remaining members of Throbbing Gristle still have a lot of business to attend to. As FACT points out, a statement on the Throbbing Gristle website outlines plans to finish up the final Throbbing Gristle album, relaunch the group's old label Industrial Records, and reissue a ton of material. And they've made it clear that they won't be performing live again under the Throbbing Gristle name.

As the website statement explains, Throbbing Gristle's contract with Mute/EMI has expired, so they've decided to reactivate Industrial, the label they started in the late 70s. In doing so, they've bought the remaining stock of Mute's Throbbing Gristle releases, which they're selling through their website.

On September 26, Industrial plans to release deluxe vinyl editions of a number of old TG albums: The Second Annual Report, D.O.A. The Third & Final Report, Heathen Earth, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, and Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits. Each will be remastered by TG member Chris Carter and limited to 2000 copies. They'll also be available on digital download and CD as part of a reissue series called TG Time Capsule. The CD reissues will come in digipacks that approximate the albums' original packaging, and they'll each include an extra disc of era-specific live recordings.

Throbbing Gristle are also finishing up work on their final album, a reinterpretation of Nico's Desertshore. They're hoping to release it early next year.

Below, check out footage of Throbbing Gristle performing "Discipline" back in the day.
