Genesis P-Orridge Calls Throbbing Gristle Quits

Posted by Amoebite, November 2, 2010 12:06pm | Post a Comment
Legendary cult band Throbbing Gristle lost a key member when Genesis P-Orridge sent out a round of emails recently, quitting the band.

As a result, according to the band's website, "Cosey, Sleazy & Chris have concluded that once more, and for the time being, Throbbing Gristle has Ceased to Exist, at least as a live entity."

This is the second time the band has folded. It first formed in 1975 in England, and gained a reputation for challenging and disturbing audience members at their live shows. Thobbing Gristle broke up the first time in 1981, after a final show at Kezar Pavillion (right next to Amoeba SF's future site!). They came back together to successful reunion shows and recording in 2004, which they continued until last week.

The remaining members have regrouped as X-TG and will be performing live in Europe this week. It appears they intend to continue in this fashion from now on.

Sure to be a popular seller at Amoeba this winter, the Feist documentary Look at What the Light Did Now will be released on DVD December 7th and it will come with a 13-track bonus CD. Like any good DVD, there will be extras as well, stuff not included in the film's theatrical release -- unseen footage, music videos, a collection of short films and more! In the meantime, you can still catch screenings of the film in Berkeley and around the world.

Watch Feist perform the title track with its original (in all ways) author, Kyle Field, aka Little Wings:

According to a recent interview with NME, Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons is exhausted and burnt out at the idea of touring again. After his lengthy tour supporting his last album, The Crying Light, he took a year off to recuperate and now has only booked one date, in NYC, thus far, even though he has a brand new album just-out, Swanlights. If you are in NYC, head out to the Alice Tully Starr Theater on Oct 30! Who knows when we'll be able to see Antony perform live again.
