Throbbing Gristle announces release date for Nico tribute album
Industrial band Throbbing Gristle has announced the completion of its long-awaited tribute to Nico’s Desertshore. The record will be released November 26, two years after the death of band member Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson, who conceived the idea for the project in 2006. Bandmates Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti decided to finish work on the album after Christopherson’s death. The group has released two trailers for the double album Desertshore/Final Report, one including vocals by Antony Hegarty, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Blixa Bargeld, Soft Cell's Marc Almond, and Sasha Grey.
