THROBBING GRISTLE RETURNS
Many years ago I remember feeling queasy at a Throbbing Gristle event at the old Danceteria. While music from the proto-industrial group played, a series of medical autopsy films screened in the background. Now, of course, this stuff is de rigeur on CSI, but that night, it was fairly unsettling.
Now, the British band has reformed, reports Pitchfork Media, and this time the film hook is a live score to Derek Jarman’s 1980 film In the Shadow of the Sun the band will perform in Berlin on January 2. The following month Mute Records will release the band’s first record in 25 years entitled Part Two. Check the band’s link above for more news, including info on the band member Cosey Fani Tutti’s Tate Gallery show.
