THROBBING GRISTLE played live 3 times in 1981. In February at the Lyceum, London then in May traveled to Los Angeles. A week later they played at the Kezar Pavilion, this would be the final performance of the original TG! It was released as Mission of Dead Souls.
Support on that Friday came from local band FLIPPER, filmed by Target video. FLIPPER were still finishing their debut LP (Album / Generic – which is great!) at the time, it was released in March the next year.
