Maxime sent me this.... recorded on DAT.
One big disadvantage to living in the US right now is... TG won't play here live (you can read the Peter Christopherson interview to find out why). Fortunately somebody brought a tape deck.
Recorded live in Paris 06/06/08 a new version of "Second Annual Report" by Throbbing Gristle, 30 years after the original release.
Regretfully their is not a clear track listing... although you will recognize "Slug Bait", and "Maggot Death", if for no other reason than you can here Genesis say those words. Apparently this will be released (along with the Barcelona concert) as limited edition live LP's (777 copies).
My guess is that someplace in their is "Industrial Introduction", Slug Bait", "Maggot Death", "After Cease To Exist" and a little "Zyklon B Zombie" for an encore. Figure on an hour and 20 minutes of bliss.

Los padres del industrial, este es un 7" de la controversial banda Throbbing Gristle. [Sus presentaciones en vivo, altamente confrontacionales, solían usar imágenes perturbadoras (incluyendo pornografía y fotos de campos de concentración nazi, dándole al grupo un reputación notable. Sin embargo, el grupo siempre sostuvo que su misión era retar y explorar los lados más oscuros y obsesivos de la condición humana (en vez de hacer música atractiva). Throbbing Gristle fue pionero en el uso de samples pre-grabados y uso de efectos especiales para producir un trasfondo distintivo y altamente distorsionado, usualmente acompañado por letras cantadas o habladas por Genesis P-Orridge.]

This legendary recording from Genesis P-Orridge's Throbbing Gristle reached an almost mythical status in the industrial music scene until its belated issue in 2001. So the story goes, the album was recorded in 1975 and was held back by the group, opting to debut with "Second Annual Report", the album which established Throbbing Gristle as the primary influence on what would later be termed the industrial music scene in 1977. This seminal recording displays the early abrasive sound of the group from the start with the 18-minute "Very Friendly." This blast of static noise pummels the listener for the best part of 15 minutes, in which Genesis P-Orridge spins a horrifying tale of murder in his deadpan delivery, which is absolutely terrifying. The piece evolves into a tape loop, which Peter Christopherson winds into an incessant mantra for the closing three minutes. It is clear after this brutal introduction that "First Annual Report" was a milestone in subversive music matched only by Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music", which incidentally came out the same year. However, Throbbing Gristle went even further, not just bombarding the listener with electronic noise but with extreme confrontational texts delivered in the most deranged fashion. While the noise may be a little hard to stomach in parts, in others it reaches sublime hypnotic peaks, and in either case "First Annual Report" is striking in that it is undeniably the most important advent in the roots of industrial music. With Genesis P-Orridge going on to Psychic TV, Peter Christopherson to Coil, and Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti as Chris & Cosey, it is a wonder that it took until 2001 before this recording appeared. Practically every act within industrial music and its offshoots — be it Merzbow, Whitehouse, Ministry, Big Black, or Godflesh — owes an incredible debt to the groundbreaking music of Throbbing Gristle.

Throbbing Gristle - The First Annual Report of TG (2001)
It's a break in the clouds from Throbbing Gristle's pummeling noise and a first glimpse at the continuing pop influence on the TG/PTV axis, but "20 Jazz Funk Greats" still isn't best described by its title. If there is such a thing as a funky Throbbing Gristle LP, however, this could well be it. "Hot on the Heels of Love," "Hamburger Lady" and "Six Six Sixties" add only occasional bits of distortion between the rigid sequencer lines. "20 Jazz Funk Greats" is the best compromise between TG's early industrial aesthetic and the reams of industrial-dance and dark synth-pop groups that used the album as a stepping stone to crossover appeal.
