After the passing of Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson in 2010, Throbbing Gristle virtually disbanded. The final chapter of their career, however, will come late November, with the release of a double album on their label Industrial Records. “Desertshore” is a reinterpretation of Nico's 1970 LP of the same name, of which the final recording was interrupted by Christopherson's death in Bangkok. Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti went ahead with the project, and completed it with the collaboration of artists like Antony Hegarty, Marc Almond, Blixa Bargeld, Sasha Grey and filmmaker Gaspar Noé.
“The Final Report”, in its part, is a collection of recordings from the trio's last sessions in Carter and Tutti's studio in Norfolk. According to the press release, it's “ the final report; a celebration, a loving remembrance of their unique partnership. ”
Both records will be out on 26th November, on double vinyl and double CD, with extensive booklets and, in the case of the CD version, bonus tracks. Here we leave you with the teasers for both albums, alongside their respective tracklists.
