Throbbing Gristle

Throbbing Gristle was formed in London, UK in 1976 out of the ashes of international performance art group COUM Transmissions. Founding members Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson and Genesis P-Orridge, as well as artist Monte Cazazza (a collaborator and friend of the band), coined the phrase “Industrial Music For Industrial People” to describe the dehumanization and mechanization of music making they in part wanted to evoke.

Throbbing Gristle was formed in London, UK in 1976 out of the ashes of international performance art group COUM Transmissions. Founding members Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson and Genesis P-Orridge, as well as artist Monte Cazazza (a collaborator and friend of the band), coined the phrase “Industrial Music For Industrial People” to describe the dehumanization and mechanization of music making they in part wanted to evoke. Aside from inventing a completely new musical genre (industrial music) Throbbing Gristle also founded their own record label, Industrial Records, which became home to artists such as Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA, SPK, William S. Burroughs and Monte Cazazza.

Throbbing Gristle were dubbed “wreckers of civilisation” by Tory MP Nicholas Fairbairn because of their 1976 exhibition “Prostitution” at the I.C.A. in London.

After terminating their first mission in 1981, TG split and the members went their seperate ways. Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti went on to form chris and cosey and started their label CTI (Conspiracy International) and recently Carter Tutti. Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson (Sleazy) went on to found Psychic TV; later Sleazy and fellow PTV member Jhonn Balance left PTV to form Coil. Genesis P-Orridge still remains active with PTV3 and Thee Majesty. « hide
