Independent label: Industrial Records owned and run by the four members of Throbbing Gristle, a ground-breaking anti-music band from the second half of the 1970s.  Industrial spawned a new kind of 'music', bleak, dehumanised and automated.  The genre was named after the label, 'Industrial Music', and it is still with us today, albeit in several different forms. The label started life in 1976 and expired in 1981, when Throbbing Gristle broke up. Most of its releases were cassettes but it managed a few vinyl LPs and nine singles.   The vinyl issues shared the same IR-0000 catalogue numbers. Throbbing Gristle were an English music and visual arts group that evolved from the performance art group COUM Transmissions. The band consisted of Neil Megson; bass guitar, violin, vocals, vibraphone), Christine Newby; guitars, cornet, vocals), Peter Christopherson (tapes, found sounds, horns, piano, vibraphone, synthesizer) and Chris Carter (synthesizers, tapes, electronics). Distributed By Rough Trade and Virgin. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
