I can't help but think the only reason TG wanted to play at a Camber Sands
was because they wanted an excuse ot put out and album with a picture of a
gloomy british holiday camp on the front.

well, it happened! Throbbing Gristle played their first live
show in 24 years this weekend (the astoria event was a
recording not a live performance don't forget).
peter, cosey, genesis and chris finally got together after much
stress, trials and tribulations, laughter and sadness, gossip
and idle chatter and did what they promised to do, play live
together again as Throbbing Gristle. although not the event
everybody wanted (RE~TG), TG still played at Pontins Holiday
Camp, Camber Sands, at atp's invitation as part of Jake and
Dinos Chapmans Nightmare Before Christmas.
the performance on friday night at 10:45pm, was, and i
challenge anyone who was there to say otherwise, a triumph for
a band who mean so much to so few and have influenced so many.
it was emotional, after taking so long to eventually happen and
was lovingly dedicated to Geff Rushton from Coil who passed
away in November.
Cosey slipped and injured herself 3 hours before the
performance, but played through the pain, she wasn't going to
get this far and not have it happen. entertainment through
a live recording of friday night was made and sold 10 minutes
after the end of the show, this limited edition double CD is
available from Mute Bank mail order whilst stocks last. its
packed in a digipack with artwork by peter and is a very
special momento of the event considering the many that couldn't
make it after so much changing of dates and moving and
canceling of RE~TG.
also available for sale is the left over merchandise from the
TG plates (yes plates), invite Nan over for biscuits and watch
her face light up as the final custard cream is removed to
reveal the TG flash symbol. this is a limited edition of 200, i
think there are about 100 left, it depends how many got broke
on the way back (mute bank will pack them carefully for you)
TG patches - the TG symbol from the front of the Camber Sands
live CD. limited edition of 200.
there is also a small amount of merchandise still left from the
RE~TG non-event and astoria show.
great christmas presents! a patch for uncle Bob, a stick of
rock for auntie Mary, a set of badges for Mum.
i know TG have appreciated your support over the years and
especially your patience over the last 2 years with the on/off
situation of RE~TG and Camber Sands, and in the end, it did
happen and they really enjoyed it, hopefully those who were
there really enjoyed it aswell. will it happen again?, will
this mission be terminated?, who knows, once the DVD release of
the astoria is ready (due for release in May), we'll ask them.
until then, happy holidays and all that.
