For the first time in 30 years, Throbbing Gristle are now back on their own original Industrial Records label. Industrial Records -- the sole representative of, and only official label representing and releasing records by the band -- present the re-release of TG's first five albums on vinyl and CD.

Each album has been restored and remastered specifically for each format by Chris Carter from 24bit "baked tape" digital transfers of the original first generation analogue master tapes.

Each of the CD special-editions are presented in a gatefold sleeve featuring restored and remastered cover artwork and an integrated 8-page booklet (the booklets feature different artwork and content than the vinyl editions). Each CD special-edition also includes an exclusive bonus CD containing content from the year of the album's original release, including live tracks and
remastered singles.

Throbbing Gristle's second full-length, originally released in 1978, captures alienation in its purest form. The line-up of Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson, Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti was a vehicle for everything bizarre, extreme and controversial. From the ravaged live track "Blood On The Floor" to the hostile phone recording on "Death Threats," TG lobotomized convention, whether musical or ideological. The lingering "Hamburger Lady" pulses with a story of a burn victim, and the band's restraint and careful composition makes it one of their best creations of all time, something absolutely terrifying. Full of tape-manipulation, computer noise and feedback, D.O.A epitomizes Throbbing Gristle's unparalleled anti-music, cementing their status as "wreckers of civilization." Cover artwork has been painstakingly restored from the original source material.
