    They're not exactly a TGP sort of artist, but I'm sure a few regulars are familiar with them. They had been battling leukemia for the past couple of years.

    He was truly quite a character. Considered by many to be one of the pioneers of industrial music.



    Enjoyed him in DIG. (Great doc/movie, check it out)

    I learned about Throbbing Gristle and COUM Transmissions from one of those "RESEARCH" magazines in the late 80s when I was in college. It seemed really dark and dangerous compared to what I was in to at the time (Sonic Youth, Swans, Dinosaur Jr). Saw Psychic TV once in LA around 1990. I never felt like the music quite delivered on the "promise" of something more dangerous and transgressive. But he was definitely a pioneer and had an interesting life.

    Talk about irreplaceable. The NYT has a nice obituary write-up.
