Gets his gristle in there too...

Throbbing Gristle's Uncle Sleazy has blogged about last weekend's show in London, and enthuses about the forthcoming dates and potential live releases. Apparently the recording for the London show went awry, as he explains it was "possibly the result of levels of fluctuating air-pressure more often found in pressure vessels such as submarines, aircraft, and elevators, after suffering profound systems failure! And I though Black Sabbath were loud! ;-) fuck me!"

He cannot resist going on to write "NB (please use equal emphasis on both these last two words, unless you are hot, male, & Thai in which case lay the stress where you like... LOL...) Sorry I've been away from "the compound" a week now!" What is it with the heroes of industrial music and post punk using smileys and loling all over the shop? They all do it!

Sleazy concludes saying, "Despite the immense volume, most people loved the show, describing it as Chamber Music for the Coming Hard Times. Dark clouds having silver linings, even more impressive, than pink fluffy ones, after all!"
