Mute and Throbbing Gristle are celebrating the 40th anniversary of TG’S The Second Annual Report with a series of reissues set for release on November 3rd.
The industrial music pioneers Chris Carter, Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson , Cosey Fanni Tutti and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge released their debut LP on November 4th, 1977.
The LP titled The Second Annual Report—one of the most influential electronic music albums, which created it’s own new genre of music—is getting a limited edition white vinyl release along 20 Jazz Funk Greats, on green vinyl. Both records will also be available on a double CD.
Additionally, The Taste Of TG: A Beginner’s Guide to Throbbing Gristle is also getting a reissue which adds Almost A Kiss to the tracklisting. This is the first time the compilation is being released on vinyl—which will come in a double red edition, alongside a CD and digital release.
