These are actually, arguably, the first Throbbing Gristle shows. I say arguably because it is my understanding that they weren’t even using the TG name on the first one. Could be wrong on that. Here’s some info from Chris Flatline’s great site:

===========================================
IRCD03
Air Gallery, London. 6th July 1976.
Hat Fair, Winchester. 21st August 1976.
Mono. TG rating 5/10.

Track One – Air Gallery (38’28”)

TG’s debut appearance. Performance art series 6th-9th July at the Air Gallery 125-129 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, curated by Genesis P- Orridge. TG performed in one room while the audience listened from the next.

00’00” Instrumental
38’23” (Recording ends)

Track Two – Hat Fair (21’31”)

At the Attic Theatre, Broadway for the Winchester Hat Fair. Audience of 170.

00’00” Dead Ed
02’00” No Two Ways
07’40” Very Friendly
16’08” (Performance ends)
17’23” (Recording ends)
===========================================

I’m not going to lie, it sounds like it was recorded from the next room over. Borderline unlistenable. You have to resituate your expectations to sit through it. Basically interesting as historical document alone.
