Throbbing Gristle Ltd

as a supplement to John's Uncarvings on the Throbbing Gristle Ltd. Astoria gig... here's some adverts you might remember... I can vividly remember staring at these and wondering... really wish I'd got off my arse and up to London... in them days it seemed so far away...

The only recording I can find is this one, a bootleg cassette... Anyone got it? I'd love to hear this baby...

And, while we're on the subject, is there a complete audio record of the 1989 Mean Fiddler gig? It went on for 3hrs or so, if I remember correctly (I probably don't, to be honest)

ah yes thanks for these! Excellent :-)

Yes I think there is full audio of the Mean Fiddler gig, some of which was used for this: http://www.discogs.com/Psychic-TV-Live-In-Thee-Mean-Fiddler/release/1060839

which I haven't got. But that was one of the best times I saw them, ever. And yes it must have been at least 3 hours.

God, the Three Johns - yeah. I remember you telling me you were into them! Can't remember what they sounded like...

And that mean fiddler was the only time I ever saw PTV - we got the door wrong and walked straight into their dressing room - I thought someone who liked very much like Z''ev was there but imight have been wrong cos I was a bit wasted from thejourney and wearing a tie dye 'hyperdelic' dentists top and a big red floppy hat with flowers on it.

I think I may have looked a bit of a twat, come to think of it...
