I saw PTV3's last show in New York at the Bowery Ballroom and I'd have to
say it was better than either of the hyperdelic era shows I saw, back in '89
and '90.  They started off with Unclean, ended with Discipline and the
playing was all very tight and energetic.
However, Michael Gira opened for them and was really so amazingly intense
just sitting there playing guitar by himself, that PTV felt like icing on
the cake.  A great night all around.

> I just found this site that has very close up live pictures of the recent

> Also, I just ordered my copy of the TGNOW CD at the Forced Exposure website (
> http://www.forcedexposure.com/artists/throbbing.gristle.html ) and as I
> understand it they are distributing the TGNOW CD over in the U.S.A. and about
> two weeks back I ordered a copy of TGNOW CD from my local independent record
> store, Plugd, in Cork City, Ireland who is ordering it directly from Mute. So
> if there is any difference between the copies I will be sure to let everyone
