This CD stands alone amongst Throbbing Gristle�s work as one of their most accessible and abstract recordings. It was never released during their existence, as it was the soundtrack to Derek Jarman�s film of the same name and had been inextricably linked to it until 1993, when this CD version was released. The soundtrack works perfectly with Jarman�s slow-moving, ritualistic Super 8 film which, being one of his earliest (1972 � 74), is also one of his most abstract. The music was improvised in 1980 to the film at a cost of only £100.
