Hahaha have you heard his collaboration with Merzbow? about half the lyrics are about how stupid and worthless you (the listener) are Hahaha

currently up to IRCD22 YMCA, London

TG are playing individual "songs" and the audience claps politely at the end of each one. It sounds really weird.

Finally coming to the end of TG24. As the CDs get later (i.e. 1979-80) they get less and less interesting. TG now play "songs" with little spontaneity; Porridge shouts and postures; the lyrics are 'meaningful' (i.e. meaningless); the tapes are derivative and obvious; the relationship between performer and audience is politely appreciative rather than confrontational. Basically TG have turned into a rock band. It's not surprising they packed in the following year.

heh, that's what I meant.

I don't think I have enough music by any single artist that would last me an entire day.

this week, i'm kinda obsessed. its the thought process that intrigues me. thee extreme alternate reality.

the creation of your own universe, completely your own reason / sense of being, etc. etc. its a freak show for sure, i guess that's what is so alluring about it.

currently going through TG24 again

most of the early CDs are good, especially:

disk 5: Live at Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, 7th May 1977
disk 11: Live at the Architectural Association, London, 3rd March 1978

and in the second half:
disk 15 - Live at Cryptic One Club, London, 11th Nov 1978

but now I'm up to disk 19 and they're just going through the motions, being Throbbing Gristle the "rock band", playing the "songs", a vehicle for Porridge as "rock star" – all quite boring really Neutral

Actually disk 20 – Live at the Guild Hall, Northampton, 26th May 1979 – is quite good too. Probably because Porridge is lower down in the mix.

as played at the end of the February 2015 lecture recording ^^.. from the new PTV3 lp, and the NIN remix. there's a quick bit about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs remix too. overall, not bad for a 2hr lecture. Smile breezed through Psychic TV stuff tho. interesting hearing about Monte Cazazza from the early days, as I was into Factrix stuff for a bit in a round about way back when, record digging & such.
