RIP Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson

Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson

Peter “Sleazey” Christopherson – of Throbbing Gristle, Coil and Soi Song, -died on November 24th:

The sad news has reached us that Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson has died in his sleep last night at the age of 55. Chris Carter twittered “Our dearest beautiful Sleazy left this mortal coil as he slept in peace last night. Words cannot express our grief.” and the TG site simply displays the message “Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson 1955 – 2010″.

Entertainment Through Pain: Industrial Records Remembered

Their catch phrase “Industrial music for industrial people” was dubbed by collaborator Monte Cazzaza. It is doubtful Cazzaza had any idea how widely used the term “industrial music” would be used. It is even more doubtful that he had any idea how it would be used. These days it seems industrial has been used to describe pretty much any band that uses any sort of electronics in their music. But in 1975 Industrial music was fucking bizzare, something completely new, and probably not what most consumers think of when they hear the word “industrial” these days.

Throbbing Gristle used primitive electronics coupled with a few traditional insturments to make soundscapes for what they considered to be urban life at the time. Even after the end of the label and the end of Throbbing Gristle, their music lives on the numerous re-releases and the current works of the former recording artists.
