Throbbing Gristle – Mission Of Dead Souls


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. Mission of Dead Souls is a recording of the final performance of the band before their initial breakup. The concert took place in San Francisco on 29 May 1981. The album was originally released as part of the Fetish box set, consisting of four old albums and this album that was exclusive to the box, but when Mute Records picked up the Throbbing Gristle catalogue, this was one of the albums that was picked up, making this one of the most common Throbbing Gristle albums.
