Throbbing Gristle

Throbbing Gristle was an English industrial, avant-garde music and visual arts group that evolved from the performance art group COUM Transmissions. The band consisted of Genesis P-Orridge (born Neil Megson - bass guitar, violin, vocals, vibraphone), Cosey Fanni Tutti (born Christine Newby - guitars, cornet, vocals), Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson (tapes, found sounds, horns, piano, vibraphone, synthesizer), and Chris Carter (synthesizers, tapes, electronics).

Formed in 1975, the band is widely viewed, along with contemporaries such as Cabaret Voltaire, as having created the industrial music genre. The group disbanded in 1981, but the individual members went on to participate in numerous other projects, and reformed in 2004 for a second stint before disbanding again in 2010 after the death of Peter Christopherson.

    At the violet hour, when the eyes and back
    Turn upward from the desk when the human engine waits
    Like a taxi throbbing waiting,
