New TG Album - Crispy!

I know I've been imagining things a lot recently but there really does seem to be a new studio album by Throbbing Gristle due out March 20th...

Yeah, you shouldn't go back - blah - yeah they should've let it lie - yeah, I didn't like 20 Jazz Funk Greats or Journey Through A Body much either (apart from the Martin Denny bits) etc etc but... there's a new studio album out by Throbbing Gristle!, aren't you even a little bit excited?

Be prepared for all the old nasties to re-emerge re: analogue vs digital.

Be prepared for more disappointment (Coum guaranteed it, didn't they?) - sorry about the Gyre spoof Ian!

To celebrate the impending release, here's a more or less completely unrelated couple of track by TG contemporaries and members of the Joy Division mutual admirers society, Crispy Ambulance:

Crispy Ambulance - Bardo Plane

Crispy Ambulance - The Presence

Did you know that West Country cowbell ringer Tim Goldsworthy (didn't he have a sexy sister? Kek would know...) and his pal, muffletopped and fluff-chinned, James Murphy from The DFA named their label after a Crispy Ambulance song? Why would you?

Another revival in the offing...

Oh, and if you go here you can find an odd little take on TG's Hot on The Heels of Love by someone called Laurie Laptop...

The new music on 2004's TG NOW was incredible - at the time I was expecting a tired old re-tread so I'm a bit excited by this new offering - not sure whether I’m fanatical enough to go for the Totemic Gift (smell that money) option though even if they are at normal CD prices - at the moment I'm more excited about the rumour that Danielle Dax and Karl Blake will be performing in Paris this year

Thanks for the link, glad you liked my small contribution to the collective TG hive mind. Keep up the good work!
