    Maybe we should have a thread for this? It's pretty special!

    Would you like me to move these two posts to their own thread? There are probably more, but it will take me a year to find them all.

    After all, we've got a thread for the poets among us! I wouldn't be surprised to find Gustav there too.

    Sorry I can't post links to my own band's music, but it would violate the pledge of anonymity I have to maintain for job reasons.

    Besides, you youngsters probably wouldn't be impressed with songs that sound like they could have been on an obscure U2 album... in 1978!

    In theory I love Throbbing Gristle. But I'll be damned if their entire output isn't more-or-less unlistenable. That Heathen Earth one you have there - the cover quote is from a Charles Manson song, IIRC, and also features into the Nine Inch Nails classic "Terrible Lie" - is the only album of theirs I ever actually owned. Generally when I find myself getting into a mood for TG, I go with these guys instead:

    My personal faves are his earlier work with Fathead (sorry for the crap audio quality):

    Eh? I can't believe what I'm reading here--unlistenable? I was never a big fan of Psychic TV, but TG were (are) brilliant. So what say you of Current 93 and David Tibet's output?

    I can't say I've ever listened to enough to advance an informed opinion, embarassingly. I tend to do more Einsturzende Neubauten or Autechre or old Cabaret Voltaire when I'm in the mood for more avante-garde industrial stuff... but the more I think on it, the more Current93 stands out as a notable gap in my background there.

    Also, don't get me wrong: TG has their moments. It's just that I always seem to find their work more interesting in theory, than in actual listening.

    Cabaret Voltaire's "official" bootleg from '79(?) is brilliant--the one with the cover of V.U.'s "Here She Comes Now"--and Neubauten, while occasionally turning out a piece of crap have managed to remain faithful to their "roots" whilst evolving nonetheless over the decades.

    Current 93's ouvre is quite varied--and extensive--I would strongly recommend checking out Earth Covers Earth, Thunder Perfect Mind, and Black Ships Ate The Sky. All of these are more recent--late 90's and 00's--and less industrial than his prior work though. I've got some personal issues with Tibet however: I've been friends with his partner/girlfriend (Andrea Degens--her project is called Pantaleimon) for some years and he briefly championed my own work, until he decided that I wasn't just the right sort of "freak" that he tends to fetishise.

    Yeah, I think they tend to succeed more with their live stuff. Curiously, their best studio work is their most mainstream album--20 Jazz Funk Greats. I don't think they really caught on to how to make a great un-polished and under-produced studio album.
