Throbbing Gristle – Persuasion (Live)

Posted in Avant-garde, Dark Ambient, Experimental, Industrial, Noise, Performance Art by newmusicexcess on April 1, 2010

I was having a look on YouTube this morning and found this video posting, and I thought, “my good friend Chris might like this”. So, this one is for you, Chris.


I then fed the band through one of my ‘patent pending’ listening suggestion procedures and, voila.

So, here is the list I ended up with. It seems that some of the choices are the slightly more accessible releases by the bands in question, but some are not.

  • Throbbing Gristle – 20 Jazz Funk Greats
  • Psychic TV – Force The Hand Of Chance
  • SPK – Machine Age Voodoo
  • Coil – Love’s Secret Domain
  • Monte Cazazza – Power vs. Wisdom
  • Nurse With Wound – Chance Meeting
  • NON – Pagan Musak
  • Whitehouse – Erector
  • Cabaret Voltaire – Red Mecca
  • Test Dept. – Beating the Retreat

Noticing that Coil had made the list I could not help but track down their chilling rendition/video of Tainted Love.

And don’t forget SPK’s metal-bashing performance of Metal Dance on The Tube.

I suppose it’s time to Force The Hand Of Chance with another Message From Thee Temple.
