so, why, when i have virtually all these records ('discipline' is the only hole), would i buy this? 1/ on the back of reading cosey's excellent book 2/ i have no decks set up or room to do so 3/ to hear some re-mastered t.g. 4/ to get some on the walkman 5/ these are some of the most innovative, challenging recordings committed to vinyl, and 6/ it's far too long since i heard them!

'Hot on the Heels of Love' is another great proto-dance moment that New Order obviously listened to, while 'United' is another proto-rave moment that was apparently TG's equivalent of 'We are the Champions'! 'What a Day' sounds like the Aphex Twin, though the recent live version from the reformed TG is even better, if only for Genesis Breyer P-Orridge's John Lydon-impersonation and the fact he drops in a bit of 'Lazy Sunday'! The title track from '...20 Jazz Funk Greats' deserves to be here, though it also turned up on the great post-punk compilation 'In the Beginning There was Rhythm' - great drones and noises and Gen's "nice!" was clearly ripped off for TV's The Fast Show!!!
Contrary to the other review, the darker side of TG is present - the brief dirge 'Blood on the Floor' from 'DOA: The Third & Final Report', '...Read more ›

If you are interested in where the British synth and techno scene started this is the place to look. Very raw and almost punk in it's own way. What I would describe as challenging.Published on 6 Mar. 2015 by L J Curran
Despite what the 2 other reviewers say, i think that this is a very good place to start if you have never heard TG before. Read morePublished on 25 Dec. 2003 by Guy
