Throbbing Gristle

Having once again taken up their project to reinterpret Nico’s 1970 long player ‘Desertshore’ (it having originally been halted following the death of original band member Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson in late 2010), cult industrialists Throbbing Gristle previewed the results of the resumed venture this past weekend as part of Newcastle’s month-long AV Festival.

Though still unfinished, the group’s ‘final’ LP will feature – in various guest capacities – Antony Hegarty of Antony & The Johnsons, Blixa Bargeld of Berlin-based band Einsturzende Neubauten and Argentine director Gasper Noé.
