Last night in Los Angeles, Throbbing Gristle performed a live soundtrack accompaniment to Derek Jarman's film In The Shadow of the Sun. Boing Boing Video, Richard Metzger, and friends were at the show. By all accounts, it was a provocative, challenging, and mindbending experience. Watch this space for a full multimedia report soon. Meanwhile, above is "TG: Psychic Rally In Heaven," a short film Jarman made for Throbbing Gristle in 1981. Best viewed at high quality, in a darkened room, with headphones.
