Wow...just Wow!

 Thought THROBBING GRISTLE had hung up their spurs - Guess not!

 This is the very latest from Chris & Cosey plus Nik Void from FACTORY FLOOR: Dark, incessant, Industrial/Art noise!!

  From the album TRIUMVIRATE:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWo7TiiHmw0

Chris and Cosey are the only members you'll likely hear any new music from. Sleazy is dead and P-Orridge almost died earlier in the year. She survived lung surgery but has continuing health problems. I met Sleazy not long before he died and he signed my Threshold Houseboys Choir ticket, but I most probably crumpled it in my pocket and threw it away the next day  :cry:

C&C keep cranking it out and Factory Floor are worthy collaborators. I saw them opening for **** Buttons when they were just getting started, and later with Cold Cave. Both times they made the headline acts look lackluster by comparison. Cosey has a pacemaker and has issues with playing live at loud volumes, so live appearances are rare. Go see her if you get the chance, since there won't be many more of them in the future.

  Thanks for the update and info... I am sorry to hear of the demise/travails of some of the Throbbing Gristle principals; I was never a huge listener of  Industrial/Experimental music like this, although Art Of Noise had a few noteworthy pieces - I came to appreciate Throbbing Gristle/Chris & Cosey more and more tho', through some friends of mine who worked at an Indie/Alternative Radio Station (CJSR FM88) in Edmonton, Canada. My taste(s) in the 'Industrial' music spectrum at the time generally leaned more toward the Rock stylings of KILLING JOKE, RED LORRY YELLOW LORRY, and some NEW MODEL ARMY...

 It was a nice surprise finding some newer material like this and I certainly hope to follow your suggestion and see them in the near future: retirement looms for me and I might as well put my pension - or part thereof - to some positive end!

While listening to an early DJ Crush mix, he played a Portishead track, and it really took me back.  'Dummy' really was a lovely album, and hearing Beth Gibbons singing again, brought back my late-teen memories.   :sad: :cry: :shocked: >:( 8)

I still like Killing Joke and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry a lot, especially KJ's early albums (some of their mid-to-late-80s stuff is a bit of a guilty pleasure, but definitely inferior to the likes of Fire Dances). I got into industrial through the stuff that was (relatively) popular in the US in the early 90s, like Skinny Puppy, Ministry, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Revolting Cocks, Front 242, Nitzer Ebb and KMFDM. And I had the excellent fortune to see the amazing yet tragically obscure Babyland several times when they were at their peak:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3O5U8gFGlj8

I didn't really get into the first generation British stuff like TG until the late 90s / early 2000s, when I discovered Chris and Cosey and TG, and later became obsessed with Coil.

If you feel like investing some of that retirement cash in the rare books trade, get yourself a copy of David Keenan's England's Hidden Reverse: A Secret History of the Esoteric Underground, which is the best account of British industrial music that I've found. The hardcover editions keep going out of print and shooting up wildly in price, so I'd say it's now or never.

An album ahead of its time (1960) from one of my all-time favourite Jazz artists that portended Eric Dolphy's later tour-de-force OUT TO LUNCH in 1964!

 Not my usual Sunday morning music, but it just seems somehow appropriate this morning...!

Safe to say that the new Mayhem album is amazing.

 Probably: Eric Dolphy was a truly talented woodwind player, especially Alto Sax and Bass Clarinet (definitely a master of this instrument)...but he was also very accomplished flautist and B Flat Clarinet player.

  Check out his Bass Clarinet virtuosity on this 1964 performance with the Charles Mingus Sextet (an old standard, masterfully rendered...); Dolphy comes in at 4:30...

I've been going to this thread for my tunes lately. Classic stuff!

I've also been playing a lot of Sisters of Mercy during down time, because what's more appropriate for middle school than listening to vampire wannabes growl about empire, guns, and methadrine?  :smiley:

Brilliant band.  Dominion/Mother Russia and This Corrosion are superb on that album as well.  Nice one Kyndo!

Listening to DJ mixes means my ears prick up every so often when something nice comes on, and I caught this listening to a DJ Krush mix.

Finished my uni classes for today; in my office now getting ready to grade a plethora of papers...and just started sorting out the musical backdrop...

First up, a very recent outing for one of my favourite British Progressive Jazz groups from the 1970s (this tune is called 'Nuclear Burn' from the 1976 album UNORTHODOX BEHAVIOUR - definitely one of my 'Desert Island Discs'...!!).

Also featuring my #1 Electric Bassist: the unbelievable, inestimable, Percy Jones...! Hope you like it...

I'm especially loving the track titled 'Volny' that starts at 11:47, but the whole thing is bloody good!
