X-TG / THROBBING GRISTLE: Reunions of bands are unavoidable. Not only the Stones and The Velvet Underground but also bands mainly appearing in the subcultural domains of our society as Bauhaus, Fehlfarben, Dead Can Dance, etc. brought to us new material or the "one and only last concert" after years of silence. Throbbing Gristle (TG) from Great Britain, initially researching on new forms of music, live performance and art in the late seventies, is no exception here. TG was founded in England in 1976 by Genesis P-Orridge, Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson, Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti. Their work of pioneers did not end in 1981 as many thought. In 2004 Re-TG was founded, which was supposed to be a reunion of the group for a unique live event in England (it did not remain the only one). The reunion of the group was unimaginable for many because the existence of the only true "industrial" group from 1976 - 1981 was such a strong and impulsive "throbbing" statement of provocative art that it seemed to be clear that it could never be re-invented through a reunion of this group. This impression was confirmed bei Bandmembers later, too. While never getting known by a broad audience the existence of TG gave birth to the founding of many groups in the "industrial music scene" but also other musicians and artists that initially came from very different social environments like Marc Almond, Einstürzende Neubauten or, as an heir today, Antony&The Johnsons. In the nineties, various DJs like Carl Craig referred to the influence of the group or like DJ Surgeon did remakes of classic TG tracks. After the Re-TG project Genesis P-Orridge (m/w) left the group in 2010 finally and group member Peter Christopherson (also founder of the band Coil) died one month later at his house in Bangkok. X-TG, how the group now were calling themselves, ceased to exist again.
