Have you heard any of their live stuff....

20 Jazz Funk Greats is definitely not representative of their live show. Think more brutality and insanely industrial sounds.

Download (or pay a ridiculous amount for) 24 Hours. It's exactly what it sounds like. 24 discs, about an hour long, of almost all their shows. Also pick up the First, Second, and Third annual reports. They have one out from a few years ago too.

01-30-2009, 01:43 AM
I picked up TG24 back when it was still reasonable I was 15 and damn if that isn't the greatest box set known to man

there are actually 25 discs too so it is 25 hours of live material

Holy fuck!! Seriously, this is huge. The godfathers/godmothers of Industrial Music, in California. They're last performance in the United States was in San Francisco in 1981!! This is going to be completely mind blowing, no doubt. This is absolutely my highlight for the whole weekend.

A few people floated this idea (or Psychic TV), but Genesis's wife died recently, so nobody took it very seriously.

I saw TG at the Tate thing in 2007, it was definitely not 'brutally industrial', but what they did fit the event (though it didn't blow me away or anything). Oddly, I'd seen PTV a few days before and they were awesome and every bit as odd as you'd expect, so I'm hopeful that the normal live set by TG is something closer to that.

Ps it was Genesis's wife who died late 2007.

Dude. Think about it. The greatest bands have the greatest aesthetic. LOOK AT THAT FUCKING PICTURE AND TELL ME IT ISN'T AWESOME.

No, I agree it's an awesome picture, the lady's coat is fucking rad, but aesthetics have nothing to do with sound. Great bands are great because they write great songs or are fantabulous musicians, not because they look the part. This is why the Sex Pistols were a mediocre band: they had average chops (Steve and Paul) and were more into looking the part (Johnny and Sid).

Either way, let's agree that Throbbing Gristle is going to FUCKING OWN the polo fields.

I think they will be in a tent -- they do a lot of a/v stuff with their sets which (i think) would display better in a tent, plus they tend to have a lot of stuff which is not erhm "all ages" show appropriate, in a tent, if people don't like it, they can take their kiddies out.

Absolutely one of my favorite bands of all time. I screamed like a little girl when I first read it. Considering that between TG wasn't touring the United States, and a very painful death occured, it really felt like TG was never going to happen again in the US.

I now have expectations of Einsturzende Neubauten next year. Thank you Golden Voice.

They'll be in the Mojave. I'm just hoping they don't headline it. Although I've seen the cure 3 times so I could stand to miss part of their set.

The historic part goes hand in hand with the fact that they make good music though, they are historic because they have made good music for a long time. So if someone is seeing them for their 'historical importance', its also most likely that they also really enjoy the music that Throbbing Gristle made in the last few decades. This is obviously not true in all cases but a fair argument for many.

It's fine not to get them. I would fully expect 95% of attendees to hate them. I'm not a huge fan myself, though I like some of their other projects. (I would have preferred Coil, but that's not really possible.)

But people calling themselves music fans that have never heard of them is kind of sad. They should produce a strong negative reaction, not a strong "who?" reaction.

Throbbing Gristle and MBV are pretty much the only reasons I'm going to attend day 3, but who knows, maybe I'll discover something new. As for liking them for the "freak factor" I'd have to disagree. I'm sure people over the next few months are going to say that they're just about "shock value" and that they're "talentless" but people say these kinds of things about all kinds of bands. The appeal is simple - they're master sound designers, unique lyricists, and they are able to conjure the emotions of paranoia, fear, dread, and unease better than any band before or since. Additionally, they strike a perfect balance between minimalist songcraft and relentless improvisation. If none of that sounds appealing to you and you continue to think that TG is, in your words, "shit" then that's your prerogative and I have no right to tell you to think otherwise.

As far as their historical importance goes, I'd say that TG (along with Kraftwerk) is to electronic music (esp. industrial, which they created) as the Beatles are to pop/rock The Sex Pistols are to Punk and NWA is to gangster rap.

They created industrial music, which means without them we wouldn't have Rammstein, Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, KMFDM, or NIN (I'll let you decide whether that's a good thing or not). Plus they had a great amount of influence on darker dance and ambient genres, not to mention anything considered noise-rock. I'd call their music highly influential. Just listen to an early live performance of Discipline. I'd say the roots of hard dance music lie in that song's beat.

..which is why the main stage is not the proper place for them. I fully expect them to lose half of the lookie-loo crowd midway through. They deserve a place where people are there to see them, not people who are there to get a good spot for the band playing later.

I really have no idea what to expect from their performance though. It could be noisy, confrontational, monotonous, scary, hypnotic, or any combination.

There's no denying that seeing Throbbing Gristle on this lineup will be the deciding factor on a number of people coming out to Coachella this year. Hell, check out the views on this thread compared to all the other threads started for any band on this lineup, this thread is #1.

"Industrial Music for Industrial People was originally coined by Monte Cazazza[2] as the strapline for the record label Industrial Records (founded by British art-provocateurs Throbbing Gristle, the musical offshoot of performance art group COUM Transmissions).

The first wave of this music appeared in 1977 with Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and NON."

shaker, that's fair, you're not diminishing their influence by saying they're not to your taste and that you prefer their successors. I am like that with Can, even though I feel like I "should" really like them I just can't. :P

I like the Kraftwerk analogy, though I personally don't feel TF is "as important" as Kraftwerk (I feel like we're comparing the originators of electronic music with the originators of a sub-genre of electronic music), it's a good comparison because you may recall that last year people complained about having Kraftwerk on the lineup, claimed it was boring music that was mostly noises, no longer relevant, and would not translate into a watchable set.

And I think Kraftwerk showed us all that their songs are just as listenable 25-30 years after they were written.

Memorial_07

Kraftwerk's music was influential and so is their visual effects and they've been pretty well known for their robot appearance but only the fact that they make great music adds onto their visuals.

TG is kind of neither but they have been influential solely for their sort of "presence" in music

It's going to be really interesting to see how their older songs sound live, considering that they've completely modernized their setup.

maybe this video of them performing Discipline in 2004 will provide a clue as to what they'll sound like

That 5 year gap from them to now will only boost their set-up into something even better.


I wonder how many people will commit suicide while watching them because seeing them while rollin' doesn't seem like a good idea

I don't think Throbbing Gristle is suitable drug music, it's too negative. If anything, it's probably the most suitable soundtrack for heroin withdrawals.

I'm pretty sure it's going to strictly be a TG set but who really knows? I think it would be really funny if they started with something accessible (United) to give the impression that they're light and dancey, and then hit the crowd with dense walls of sound.

yeah very sad, I didn't know John Balance died until recently.
Coil was a spinoff project of Sleazy Christopherson with his boyfriend John Balance, at least I think they were together.

this album was my soundtrack to the summer of 1992... very electronic & druggy.

When I'm back on my computer I might be able to hook you up. If you do know how to use Megaupload, rapidshare, mediafire, zshare etc. you can google search Throbbing Gristle + 20 Jazz Funk Greats + blogspot and probably find a download link for the album somewhere. If you go that route, make sure to download the version of the album that has the 2 live recordings of Discipline at the end, so you can get a feel for their edgier side.

Since I'm totally psyched for this and nobody else is going to want to talk to me about the Gristle for the next 3 months, I'll just quickly share my opinion on their latest album

Personally, I think the Endless Not is a very good album but I'd say it's one of their weaker ones. Maybe my opinion of it will change in the next few months after I listen to it a ton of times, but as of right now I think it pales in comparison to their live recordings and the 2nd & 3rd annual reports. I think my main problem with it (and this is probably a result of my audio engineer's training) is that it's too digital sounding. I have no problem with laptop music but I'm not so sure it benefits TG's studio sound. Throbbing Gristle is dirty,primal music and at this moment I think the sound on "Not" is just a bit too clean. It is good that they aren't falling behind the times though, and they're keeping up with different technology and techniques so they don't start sounding stale. Maybe it would be really cool if they recorded some of their classics with the new technology.

That said, I'm completely positive that the new sound will absolutely slay live.

So the questions must be asked: What songs do you think they'll play

We probably have know way of knowing what they'll actually play. For all we know it could be entirely improvised or they could do something along the lines of an extended version of Discipline. Either way, what do you guys want them to play the most?

I'd want to hear

Maggot Death
Zyklon B Zombie
Persuasion
6660s
Blood on the Floor
Very Friendly
Hamburger Lady
Discipline
Weeping

Convincing people also.

NightGoat
02-02-2009, 08:31 PM
Oh yeah that one too. Shit, they could have a set entirely comprised of renditions of Kenny G tunes and 80s metal ballads lasting an entire week and it would still be the best performance at the festival

SoulDischarge
02-02-2009, 10:16 PM
I definitely want some Zyklon B Zombie, although not really expecting it. Hot On The Heels Of Love would of course be great, and they seems to play it in recent videos.

But yeah. I'm hoping for some improvisation mixed in with the classics. That's really where they excel. No matter what, I know it's going to be fucking amazing. And I'm definitely going to be having the best worst trip of my life that night.

I've been wondering this myself. I would like to see they open with Vow Of Silence, that would be perfect. I would also like to see them play Hamburger Lady, Greasy Spoon, Discipline, Rabbit Snare, Persuasion and Convincing People. Very Friendly would also be pretty cool to see, but would take up almost a third of their set. They probably won't be playing more then 10 songs.

NightGoat
02-03-2009, 12:40 AM
You're probably right about Very Friendly. No matter, the'yve got more than enough songs to fill that void. It just dawned on me that Still Walking could be absolutely mindblowing if they included all of the panning drums and whatnot
