Throbbing Gristle - United


On this date in 1978, Throbbing Gristle released their debut single, "United". It was backed by "Zyklon B Zombie". The A side appeared on their second studio album, D.O.A. The Third And Final Report. The B side did not. The London post punk/experimental band is credited as being one of the founders of industrial music. While most of their releases were live albums over the course of their career, they did release some studio material and lasted until 1981. Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson formed Psychic TV. Throbbing Gristle re-formed in 2004 and have been somewhat active.
