Throbbing Gristle - The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle (expanded / remastered) 2 x CDs (Weekly Sale)
Unless you were there, I can not begin to explain just how controversial TG were back in the late 70s. This, along with the included single, were their opening salvos and actually may be their best work. The pioneers of noise music in rock.
"For the first time in 30 years, Throbbing Gristle are now back on their own original Industrial Records label. Industrial Records -- the sole representative of, and only official label representing and releasing records by the band -- present the re-release of TG's first five albums on vinyl and CD. Each album has been restored and remastered specifically for each format by Chris Carter from 24bit "baked tape" digital transfers of the original first generation analogue master tapes. Each of the CD special-editions are presented in a gatefold sleeve featuring restored and remastered cover artwork and an integrated 8-page booklet (the booklets feature different artwork and content than the vinyl editions). Each CD special-edition also includes an exclusive bonus CD containing content from the year of the album's original release, including live tracks and remastered singles. Originally released in 1977, TG's Second Annual Report features various recordings of "Slug Bait" and "Maggot Death," plus the 20-minute soundtrack to After Cease To Exist, a short film featuring a castration sequence. A scathing debut from these avant-garde legends. The bonus CD features additional live recordings from this period, plus the 7" single versions of "Zyklon B Zombie" and the strangely-accessible United."
