Throbbing Gristle – Heathen Earth
Throbbing Gristle were an English music and visual arts group formed in 1975 in Kingston upon Hull by Genesis P-Orridge, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter Christopherson, and Chris Carter. They are widely regarded as pioneers of industrial music, creating the industrial music genre, along with contemporaries Cabaret Voltaire. On Throbbing Gristle’s debut album The Second Annual Report, they coined the slogan “industrial music for industrial people”. Throbbing Gristle dissolved in 1981 due to interpersonal differences; the individual members went on to participate in other projects, such as Psychic TV, Coil, and Chris & Cosey. Heathen Earth is a live album released in 1980. Tracks 1–8 document their performance 16 February 1980 at the Industrial Records studio in front of a small, invited audience. The audience are all credited by name on the album.
