Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits
Released: 6th September 2019
Mute are happy to announce the re-release of Throbbing Gristle’s Greatest Hits on double CD and transparent orange LP with 8 page 12” booklet + download with 9 bonus tracks. This is the classic TG greatest hits album, back in print and on orange vinyl after being unavailable for a few years.
Throbbing Gristle’s innovative working methods are deeply ingrained in the collective consciousness of... everything. The band’s subversive dismantling of systems of social control impacted culture well beyond their time, and as impossible as it may seem, this collection actually provides an exceptional summation of their best work. The first real industrial group, the founders of Industrial Records and one of the most important electronic music creators of all time, Throbbing Gristle redefined music and laid a large part of the groundwork for all electronic music that followed.
