It's impossible to deny Throbbing Gristle's working methods and innovation are so deeply ingrained in the collective consciousness of... everything. TG's subversive dismantling of the apparatus of social control casts such a long shadow, and as impossible as it may seem, this collection actually provides an exceptional summation of their best work. The first real industrial group, the founders of Industrial Records and one of the most important electronic music innovators of all time, TG redefined music and laid a large part of the groundwork for all electronic music that followed. The CD version includes a bonus CD of live recordings, plus two previously unreleased mixes from the 1980s: "The Old Man Smiled (Alternative Mix)" and "AB/7A (Alt Mix)." The 8-page full-color book includes visual ephemera and previously-unpublished photographs. Cover artwork has been painstakingly restored from the original source material. Restored and remastered by Chris Carter from 24bit "baked tape" digital transfers of the original first generation analogue master tapes.
