“Throbbing Gristle – 20 Jazz Funk Greats” is an iconic vinyl album by British band Throbbing Gristle. Released in 1979, this album is considered a seminal work in the genre of Industrial and experimental music. Despite its misleading title, the album offers a subversive and provocative approach to jazz and funk music. The tracks on the album combine elements of funky grooves, electronic sounds and dark textures, creating an intense and disturbing atmosphere. Both Chris and Cosey had a keen interest in electronic music, as evident in the pure, upbeat electropop of “Hot on the Heels of Love” and the driving synthesizer patterns of “Walkabout.” Naturally, it wouldn’t be characteristic of TG if everything was “very cordial”. Thus, in the tracks “Persuasion” and “Six Six Sixties”, Genesis P-Orridge reveals various darker nuances that give us chills.
The lyrics deal with controversial and provocative themes, reflecting the subversive nature of the band.
“Throbbing Gristle – 20 Jazz Funk Greats” is a bold, avant-garde vinyl that defies musical convention, pushing the boundaries of sonic experimentation. It’s a must-have for alternative music lovers and seekers of innovative sounds.
