The end of an era for Throbbing Gristle or just the end of another break up phase? P-Orridge has left the band, and left them with tour dates remaining on the schedule. This certainly isn't the first time that Throbbing Gristle has provided gristle for the rumor mill, since there have been break ups in the past.
"In the evening 27th October TG members and their associated managements received two emails from Genesis P-Orridge stating he was no longer willing to perform in Throbbing Gristle and returned to his home in New York," reads an announcement on the Throbbing Gristle web site. "Cosey, Sleazy & Chris have concluded that once more, and for the time being, Throbbing Gristle has Ceased to Exist, at least as a live entity."
in the mantime, you can catch Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter Christopherson and Chris Carter filling in on some Throbbing Gristle tour dates as X-TG, which can also slyly be interpreted as "Ex-Throbbing Gristle." More gristle for the rumor mill!
