Throbbing Gristle: It's Never Too Late To Fall In Love

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 26 November 1977

THROBBING GRISTLE are so away from the new wave scene (sort of) and so totally reviled by the standard music fans (at least, by those who've heard them) that I assumed that they'd be just aching to get within talking distance of a tape machine in order to grind out a potted version of their own philosophy/history, not to mention protest loudly about how they were unfairly abused by the press after questions were asked in the House about their infamous show (remember those tampons?) at the ICA a few months back.

Total word count of piece: 1450
