Throbbing Gristle - The Second Annual Report LPLabel: Mute Records
Regular price $23.98
Limited edition white colored vinyl LP pressing. The Second Annual Report is considered to be influential within electronic music, being one of the first industrial music albums. Recorded in their rehearsal space and at various grubby gigs onto a Sony cassette recorder in a defiantly lo-fi manner in 1977, the music alternately chugged along like a squelchy, crude cop of the Velvet Underground, or stretched out into malingering new age, like a syphilitic Tangerine Dream. The music is relentless, grinding distortion, only occasionally leavened by vocal samples and percussion.
