Throbbing Gristle – "24 Hours" (Cassette Version) (Industrial Records) 1980

by jonnyzchivago

T.G. were always at their best in a live environment, no performance being exactly the same, each ‘song’ in a different version. Therefor

I cannot pick out one of these cassettes as superior to the other, all are superb live documents of a band at their peak, making a type of music that was never heard before; this is (non) musical history in the making.
listening to 24 hours of T.G. is never boring, and is a thoroughly recommended pastime. I wouldn’t give the same recommendation for listening to 24 Hours of Dire Straits for example……in fact that very thought gives me suicidal, or even genocidal, urges. Why Knopfler hasn’t been tried for crimes against humanity I’ll never know!!?

Limited to just 50 numbered copies, each one personalized to the buyer and dated. Each copy is unique with hand-made collages on each of the primary (signed) information card. Each set also came with three colour-copied inserts (colour copies were very expensive and rare in 1980 when these were made). One featured an informal shot of the band while another was a collage by G P-O of the proposed “Industrial Records HQ”. Copies also contained 2 full-sized b&w original photos: one a classic press shot and the other an informal image of the band being interviewed (by a small radio station in US). Some copies came with two cassettes of interviews,…..but not this one.
Each set retailed for 88 UK pounds (for UK) or 99 UK pounds rest of the world (postage paid).
This is, by far, the most collectible of all official TG-releases.
