Category Archives: TG24:01

First disc of Throbbing Gristle’s massive live document TG24, I’ll see how far I get posting these disc by disc. I’ll alternate between TG24 and the supplemental box set TG+, which has their last “classic era” shows on it. That’s in case too many shows from the same era become monotonous.

TG live has always struck me as hard on the ears, even for TG. But we’ll see how it goes. Here’s some info about this particular show, from which a version of “Slug Bait” was pulled for SECOND ANNUAL REPORT:
