The Deluxe vinyl and CD reissues of 5 classic Throbbing Gristle albums are almost here.
For the first time in 30 years Throbbing Gristle are now back on their own original Industrial Records label and their first five albums have been restored and remastered specifically for each format by Chris Carter from 24bit ‘baked tape’ digital transfers of the original first generation analogue master tapes.
The Vinyl editions have been cut to 180-gram vinyl including painstakingly restored cover artworks, using original source material from the Industrial Records visual archive. In addition each of the vinyl releases includes an exclusive large format 8-page colour booklet featuring an abundance of Throbbing Gristle archival material, including some previously unpublished photos of the band. Each vinyl release is limited to 2000 copies.
Each of the CD special-editions is presented in a gatefold sleeve featuring restored and remastered cover artworks and an integrated 8-page booklet (the booklets feature different artworks and content to the vinyl editions). The CD versions also include an exclusive bonus CD each, containing rare and previously unheard TG material alongside live tracks and remastered singles from the year of the albums’ original release.
The first of these five reissues: “The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle” is shipping at the end of this week for release on October 31st, with the next four releases shipping one a week for the next month. All of them are listed below – so to secure your copies of these crucial reissues we suggest you dive-in while copies last.
