18047TG in the 'hood?
- Apr 1, 2004Last Friday's Guardian had this Throbbing Gristle article in
I was intrigued by this comment from Genesis
" was in the Lower East Side recently and a dreadlocked kid came up
to me and said, "You're Genesis, aren't you? I'm a hip-hop DJ and we
use TG all the time." It turns out that there's a huge community of
African-American musicians whose main influence is Throbbing
I wonder if somebody stumbled over a copy of 20 Jazz Funk Greats and
took the title literally, only to find somdething more interesting
inside. Probably unlikely, the group look double plus unfunky on the
cover. Cabaret Voltaire etc seem to have had some influence elsewhere.
Could it be the eclecticism of 99 records shop?
