Throbbing Gristle – The Taste Of TG
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. The Taste of TG (subtitled A Beginner’s Guide to the Music of Throbbing Gristle) is a compilation album by Throbbing Gristle. The cover art is a manipulation by Peter Christopherson of a still from the Pier Paolo Pasolini film Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma.
