On November 25, 2010, industrial music pioneer Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson of Throbbing Gristle and Coil died in his sleep. Today, we pause to remember Sleazy and his contributions to music and transgressive art with this exclusive "memorial mix" of "Desertshores." The song comes from Desertshore/The Final Report, a double album of music that Sleazy and his Throbbbing Gristle collaborators Cosey Fanni Tutti and Chris Carter were developing when their dear friend shuffled off this mortal coil. Desertshore is a "cover" of Nico's challenging 1970 album while The Final Report compiles Sleazy, Chris, and Cosey's 2009 and 2010 recording sessions as a trio. Desertshore/The Final Report will be released tomorrow on Industrial Records.

- Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson (1955-2010)

How about a whole album full of 11 excellent songs you’ve never heard before, which Joni wrote between 1964 and 1969 but never got around to recording.....sung by an excellent singer....with expert tasteful backup....including the first song she ever wrote, “Hunter,” which until now had appeared on a handful of early unreleased test-pressings of BLUE? Songs so good, they all sound like just-discovered outtakes from SONG TO A SEAGULL—which is basically what they are? How ‘bout, all this for only a sawbuck, US? (or $13 for a physical CD)

Now, on the heels of all that, Prince’s estate has announced that it will release an album of previously-unreleased material on […]
