The Taste of TG: A Beginner’s Guide to the Music of Throbbing Gristle is a sort of best of/perfect point of entry to the sickeningly influential soundworld of TG. Pulling together alternat-universe hits such as the proto-Detroit techno banger On The Heels Of Love to the howling hole at the center of the best b-side ever, Zyklon B Zombie.

If for some bizarre reason you are out of the loop on why TG are held in the highest esteem by everyone from Carl Craig to Regis, and even heralded as an influence for all the wrong reasons by Whitehouse (who said of Throbbing Gristle, they were an influence for what they DIDN'T achieve) than we recommend you cop this pronto. A discipline of the highest order.

Forty years (!!!) since the wreckers of civilization Throbbing Gristle first tore apart any notions of what you thought punk/post-punk/psychedelia/whatever-you-wanna-label-it was mean to sound like, Mute give us a fresh glimpse of the sounds that turned and continue to this day switch generations onto the movement that can is best described as nothing other than, industrial.
