Letter to the Editor printed in SOUNDS Magazine Feb 18, 1978, regarding ‘The Second Annual Report of Throbbing Gristle’
It HAS been a long time since my boyfriend and I made love whilst listening to a record (we use albums not singles - of course). He Came round to my apartment here on the Left Bank a few days ago and what happened makes me wonder just where our relationship is going. He said, “I’ve got this album we must make it with - It’s just right”. The cover was white and seemed nice. Well we had the lights off and the curtains drawn and the record on. He was good and the record was right. But when I asked who it was he said ‘Throbbing Gristle.’ My English is good and I knew what it meant. The titles of the album tracks frighten me and they look evil and now I somehow feel sick at what we did together listening to those evil English people. I don’t know where we go after this.
