"Whistling Song" as written by Chris Carter, Peter Martin Christopherson, Genesis P-orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti....
Hello? Right. Well...uh... As we normally don't bother - ooh! It's nearly 9 o'clock, so um, what I'd like to do first just for a change in the hope that the atmosphere will be more domestic after we introduce ourselves - we're Throbbing Gristle, and you can't see her, but over in the corner is Cosey Fanni Tutti, who plays lead guitar, and then with his black suit everybody, just about there, is Chris Carter who plays the keyboards, synthesizer and machines, and then watching the television in the corner is Sleazy, and uh...my name's David Brooks. And we usually play around 60 minutes.

Tonight...is family night.

It's always the same as last time. It's always the same. You do everything you can. It's always the same at the end of it. Go home and nobody's there. Door's open. Cats looks at you. No food. News and the breakfast. Cook it different next time. Maybe after Christmas. Maybe after January 4th. Maybe if you sit in your bed long enough and watch the television it'll change. Even the picture goes. Even the picture goes. Even the picture goes...

    General CommentGen for some reason thought this was going to be the last TG gig ever, so he took a bunch of valium (I think it was valium) and almost died during the gig. Of course this was nothing unusual, but when he collapsed at the end he came closer to death than usual, which turned out to be the influence for his solo track Weeping.
