Throbbing Gristle times two


On this date in 1980, Throbbing Gristle released their third and fourth singles. One single was "Adrenaline" backed by "Distant Dreams (Part 2)". The other was "Subhuman" backed by "Something Came Over Me". Both A sides appeared on their fourth studio album, Greatest Hits - Entertainment Through Pain. Neither of the B sides appeared on the album. 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.
