20 Jazz Funk Greats.


20 Jazz Funk Greats.

London: Industrial Records, (December) 1979. LP record (IR0008). Short (2cm.) partial split to top edge of sleeve; slight edge and corner wear; overall, Very Good plus. Disc Near Mint. One of 5000 copies, the first 2000 of which included a poster, not present here. (Ford 9.3).

TG's third album, "Recorded at the Studios of Industrial Records in the weeks ending September 3rd, 1979" (back cover note).

Colour front cover photo of TG at Beachy Head, East Sussex, a choice of location seemingly at odds with the sombre industrial image of TG, but one "where people who are totally in despair commit suicide" (Genesis P-Orridge, quoted in Ford 9.25). P-Orridge told Jon Savage that the idea originated from his visit home for Christmas 1978 when his mother had asked him "in an antagonistic sort of way", why he didn't make "a nice record, with something nice on it, like flowers?"
