Return in Style
I nearly shit my pants when I read there was a new Throbbing Gristle record around. Not because I was in such dire need of it, but because there was the distinct possibility that it was not going to live up to my expectations. But it did actually. It is a very good record, it may in the future even turn out to be a brilliant record. And though they seem to have mellowed out over the years (some tracks sound almost jazzy), the power of this foursome is still entirely intact. I like it when my heroes still cut it after all those years.
