This reissue of The Second Annual Report is a must-have if you're a fan of the record -

Remastered by Chris Carter, the sound on this is more detailed than on the previous edition, and it's like hearing the thing for the first time all over again.

Included in this set is a second disc with live recordings (mainly from 1977) that work very well alongside the original album - Forced Entry and Tesco Disco especially are both atmospheric (in a typically awful way). Plus there's also United and Zyklon B Zombie (the versions from the single).

The set is well packaged, with a short sleevenote by Cosey Fanni Tutti from 1990 - not sure why they couldn't get on their Apple laptops and pen some new sleevenotes? Still, it's good to know there's a connection between Throbbing Gristle, and - of all people - Billy Idol.

Some good pictures are reproduced in the booklet - my favourite one being (presumably from around 1977) of the band in a hotel room, with Genesis P-Orridge looking inexplicably like a member of a mod revival band, or a member of Beady Eye.

This was my second Throbbing Gristle purchase, and what with my first TG buy being '20 Jazz Funk Greats', I was pleasantly surprised...
Where '20 Jazz Funks Greats' was TG's most 'accessible' album, 'Second Annual Report' is the the more sludgier noisier side of the TG spectrum. The tracks on this album are mainly different versions of the same songs recorded at various gigs. This album is mainly quite droney and sludgy, with Genesis P Orridge ranting and shouting slightly out of tune (regardless of the fact that none of these tracks have 'tunes'). One of the tracks is a 20 minute long soundtrack to a film. The feel of the track is quite isolated and minimal, yet strikingly powerful.
If you're a TG fan and don't own this, GET IT. IF you want to hear something by TG, get this if you want some of their more extreme stuff, or '20 Jazz Funk Greats' if you wanna start with their nicer stuff- beleieve me it only gets more evil from there...

Proving that you didn't need to know any chords to play music, TG make their live debut with their 2nd Annual Report. While perhaps not as frightening as it was at the time, the churning distortion, bleak synths and disaffected vocals still lend the album the power disturb. Ideally listened to all the way through, the lasting effect is by turns disturbing (on Slug Bait and Maggot Death), hypnotising (After Cease to Exist, Zyclon B Zombie) and strangely uplifting (United). While you may need to crank up the volume for full effect, Industrial music's first step is still worth investigating.

Ground Zero for the Industrial Music genre. A must for fans of experimental/noise music. Very Lo-Fi, due to it being mainly live tracks recorded on a single Sony cassette recorder.
