Official Announcement from Industrial Records: Genesis P-Orridge No Longer Wishes to Play with Throbbing Gristle

In the evening 27th October TG members and their associated managements
received two emails from Genesis P-Orridge stating he was no longer willing to perform in Throbbing Gristle and returned to his home in New York.

Cosey, Sleazy & Chris have concluded that once more, and for the time being,
Throbbing Gristle has Ceased to Exist, at least as a live entity.

Therefore, and with deepest apologies, TG must cancel their scheduled performance at Archa Theatre, in Prague, Czech Republic on 30th October.
It being too short notice to offer an alternative set.

In order not to disappoint fans of the old quartet, Cosey, Peter & Chris have offered to perform live under the name X-TG at Arena Del Sole, Bologna, Italy on 2nd November & at Casa Musica, Porto, Portugal on 5th November.

We hope fans will appreciate and enjoy this new project and the trio is looking forward to performing exciting new and radical electronic musics together.

Full refunds are available at the point of purchase if required.

If you visit the Throbbing Gristle website there is already an area waiting for content regarding X-TG and Chris Carter made mention this morning via Twitter that they are hoping to post some new X-TG tracks as free downloads. Keep your eyes and ears open!
