Throbbing Gristle Reissues Series Continues

  • Published in News

Throbbing Gristle announce the next phase of their reissues series with the release of Part Two: The Endless Not, TG Now and A Souvenir of Camber Sands, out on CD and limited edition vinyl on December 13. In 2004 Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson, Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti reformed - 23 years after their mission was originally terminated - and between 2004 and 2007 the band released 14 new studio tracks and a live album of their appearance at ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas in Camber Sands.

TG Now, originally released in 2004, was the sound of Throbbing Gristle testing the waters, seeing how it felt to work together again. The four-track limited vinyl and CD release was available originally to attendees of the RE-TG Astoria event in 2004, their first performance together since 1981’s US tour.

With Part Two: The Endless Not, the band returned to the studio after deciding they had unfinished creative business outside of the live arena. Released in 2007, over 25 years after their last studio album, the album was, as Tiny Mix Tapes put it, “…more of a rebirthing than a reunion”. Several live documents followed the album’s release, but the untimely death of Peter Christopherson in November 2010 meant that this would become the final Throbbing Gristle album, and 15 years since the reformation, all the albums included in this phase of the remastered reissues, Part Two: The Endless Not, TG Now and A Souvenir of Camber Sands, stand proudly within the influential catalogue and legacy of TG.

Throbbing Gristle are renowned for their documentation of live performances, TG24 (which was reissued in 2002) and TG+ (released in 2004) collated their live recordings up until the band disbanded. This release reactivated the band’s live performance releases that include Thirty Second Annual Report (from La Villette, Paris) and the Desertshore Installation (from the ICA, London).

Carter Tutti Void Form Triumvirate

  • Published in News

Carter Tutti Void (Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void) have shared an edit of a track from their third and final studio album. Triumvirate will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally and is out via Conspiracy International on August 30.Containing all new studio recordings, Triumvirate brings Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void’s collaborative partnership as Carter Tutti Void to a conclusion. The trio first came together as a collective for a live performance, invited by Mute for the Short Circuit Festival in 2011 and released their acclaimed debut, the live album Transverse the following year.

Carter Tutti Void went on to release f(x) (Industrial Records, 2015), their first studio recording and performed a handful of selected shows, culminating in their final live performance in Hull, part of a series of events for Hull City of Culture 2017 centred around the COUM Transmissions retrospective at Humber Street Gallery.

For some time Carter, Tutti and Void have been awaiting an opportunity when all three artists were able to gather at Carter and Tutti’s Studio47 in Norfolk, where the album was recorded, produced and mastered. Triumvirate was approached with the improvisational spirit of previous Carter Tutti Void albums. The rhythms, created by Chris Carter, formed the foundation and starting point from which the process began of melding the live instrumentation of Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void’s searing guitars, vocals, effects and the arsenal of sounds each had amassed from a variety of sources, some sounds manipulated to extremes, all fed into the mix.

Carter Tutti Void are Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti (Chris & Cosey / Throbbing Gristle) and Nik Void (Factory Floor / NVPR). (home of Chris and Cosey since 1982). Nik Void is currently working on her debut solo album.
