Throbbing Gristle unveils a brand new reissue of The Third Mind Movement, released commercially for the first time on CD and vinyl via Mute.

Formed in 1975, Throbbing Gristle, aka Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson (1955-2010), Cosey Fanni Tutti, and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (1950-2020), fully delivered on punk’s failed promise to explore extreme culture as a way of sabotaging systems of control. Their impact on music, culture, and the arts has been immeasurable and still felt today.

Having reformed in 2004, Throbbing Gristle’s The Third Mind Movements initially emerged as an exclusive release only available on the band’s last ever American tour in 2009, before they split again in 2010. As the title implies, the album delves into the established connections between Throbbing Gristle and William S. Burroughs, particularly through the beloved cut- up technique, famously pioneered by Burroughs and Brion Gysin in ‘The Third Mind’.

The album travels through manipulated, time-stretched, and distorted samples, with rhythmical breakbeats and hypnotic oscillations of electronics.
