The end of TG
Sorry to hear today that Genesis P-Orridge has, once again, dissolved Throbbing Gristle. Sleazy, Cosey and Chris Carter are trucking on as X-TG, but it all sounds pretty much over for another 10 years or so.
I was lucky enough to see them last year in what was one of my favourite ever gigs. I reviewed it for Clash here, if you're interested.
I will miss them. They may have frequently disappointed on record (oh come on, they did. Coil were a million times better) but live they were a fearsome proposition, and the music world is diminished without them.
