Throbbing Gristle - Greatest Hits (Entertainment Through Pain)


On this date in 1981, Throbbing Gristle released their fourth studio album, Greatest Hits (Entertainment Through Pain). It contained the singles, "Subhuman" and "Adrenalin". The album was part compilation of previously released material and part introduction to new material. The band was never commercially successful so the term "greatest hits" was ironic. The London post punk/experimental band was, however, extremely influential and are credited as being one of the founders of industrial music. They released a tremendous number of live albums over the course of their career and a few studio albums as well. They lasted until 1981. Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson formed Psychic TV. Throbbing Gristle re-formed in 2004 and have been somewhat active.
