Throbbing Gristle are for me probably the most important group in 20th Century music. A bold statement indeed but they are really special to me. This album in particular holds fond memories as it was the first LP I ever acquired by them. Originally released in 1978 and pretty much been unavailable on vinyl ever since. This is the second in the series of remastered vinyl reissues, carefully handled by the band themselves and back on their own Industrial Records label. The LP features an 8 page booklet with text and photos with a different booklet included in the CD edition which is expanded with loads of extras. As much as I've played this album over the years it's lost none of its potency. The bleak and grim sounds of 'Hamburger Lady' are just as scary as I listen right now. Then the juxtaposition with tracks like 'United' a perfect slice of electronic pop is just as thrilling as it was when I first discovered it. Much has been written about their music over the years both good and bad so I'll spare a proper analysis. If you already own a battered original then these pristine copies are recommended and have been remastered by Chris Carter himself (from “baked tapes”), ensuring they sound as intended. There are some pure gems on this record: I.B.M, Blood On The Floor, E-Coli, Weeping, Death Threats etc. In fact they're all bloody great. But then I would say that about my most beloved recording artists of all time.
