>>
>> Dear All,
>>
>>  As you may remember after the postponement of the RE~TG event
>> earlier in this year, promoters Foundation were looking forward to
>> promoting an "All Tomorrow Parties "currated by Thobbing Gristle
>> (ATP- TG) event in May 2005.
>>
>>  After a lengthy struggle to realise " ATP-TG" , ATP, as the
>> promoters, have decided the event can not be realised in the
>> forseeable future.
>>
>>  All the members of Throbbing Gristle & myself & ATP are extremely
>> disappointed, having put a considerable & repeated effort  ( & a free
>> show in London) into trying to realise the event, but sadly this is
>> not to be.
>>
>>  Circumstances to numerous to list here have conspired to make our
>> original plans for such an event unattainable, & the decision by ATP
>> was not taken lightly & not without considerable financial losses on
>> their part.
>>
>>  The majority of you who will receive this email are the original
>> artists whom were invited to play "RE~TG" & therefore were
>> subsequently expecting to perform at "ATP-TG".
>>  Our sincere & heartfelt apologies to you all for this disapointment
>> & again our thanks for your open hearted support for the original
>> event's ideologies & expectations.
>>  Certainly the one area that has encouraged us to continue to
>> struggle with making this event happen has been the support &
>> understanding from the other artistes involved.
>>
>>  Throbbing Gristle will now play on Friday 3rd December 2005 at
>> Camber Sands as part of the ATP/Foundation promoted weekend event
>> (Dec 3/4/5)  "A Nightmare Before Christmas" currated by visual
>> artistes Jake & Dinos Chapman.
>>
>>  Foundation are announcing the initial line-up for "Nightmare Before
>> Christmas" any day now
>>  (see www.alltomorrowsparties.co.uk).
>>  It is not envisaged that many, if indeed any, of our original list
>> of artistes will be part of this new event, since Jake & Dinos
>> Chapman's curation will naturally be based on their own personal
>> choice
>>
>>  Regrets & Regards
>>  Paul Smith
>>  for Throbbing Gristle
>>  Cosey Fanni Tutti
>>  Genesis P. Orridge
>>  Peter Christopherson
>>  Chris Carter
