Throbbing Gristle to complete Nico cover

Throbbing Gristle to complete Nico cover

Avant noise provocateurs Throbbing Gristle are finally getting around to completing their long-gestating interpretation of Nico’s classic album Desertshore.

A pet project of founding member Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson, who sadly died earlier this year, two six hour sessions of an early version of the work were released across six CDs in 2007 called Desertshore Installation.

Now a timeframe has ben set for Chris Cosey and Fanni Tutti to finally finish the project, with September to November of this year pencilled in for the pair to complete the recording and mixing. No news on Genesis P.Orridge’s involvement – she walked out on the group just prior to Christopherson’s death.

There is a lack of YouTube clips so here’s a personal favourite from each camp..
