"Weapon Training" as written by Chris Carter, Peter Martin Christopherson, Genesis P-orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti....
The 90mm tank gun, fired from an M48A3 tank, known affectionately as the "General Patton".

The lightweight antitank 130mm guided missile, known as the "Intact".

The 105mm tank gun fired from an M60 main battle tank.

The M40A1 106mm recoilless rifle.

Good evening. We're Throbbing Gristle. We come from Dallas, Texas. So...no Red Dukakis & The Kansas City Poker Chips.

The 155mm self propelled Howitzer.

The armored personnel carrier flamethrower M132.

The 7.62mm machinegun.

The calibre 50 machinegun.

The 40mm grenade launcher.

The SS11 antitank guided missile weapon subsystem, fired from the UH1B utility helicopter.

    General CommentThis was the standard intro used for a few gigs around the time they started focusing on complete compositions rather than improvised noise. I can't say I like their "rock band" incarnation better than pure industrial terror, but they got some of their best live versions from this period. This is an especially effective introduction and one of their best found sounds, especially with the irony in preserving the sounds of instruments of death on vinyl.
