Whether you're among those who think they went too far, or still maintain they didn't go far enough, Throbbing Gristle rewrote the rules for the music industry. My own experience came firstly through reading Simon Ford's book, and only later through the music itself. Now there's to be a new folio released dedicated to 20 Jazz Funk Greats, the group's most accessible release, and I can't help but order a copy. This would really be in tribute to an act that changed my perception of what is possible in music and in art.
