First time reissued for this Throbby Grizzy (lol, like fans call them that), which was only available during their 2009 American tour just before they disbanded again. Adopting the cut up technique of William S Burroughs it's a dark industrial collage of samples and 'hypnotic oscillations'.

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.

The Third Mind Movement is released alongside TGCD1 - both vital additions for dedicated Throbbing Gristle and industrial music fans.
