Industrial Records Ltd. are pleased to announce the birth of GRISTLEISM, the newest member of the Throbbing Gristle family. Bastard offspring of now-famous ambient loop player the Buddha Machine, GRISTLEISM is part industrial sound machine, part noise instrument. Featuring 13 original and uncompromising loops, GRISTLEISM delivers a mix of signature TG experimental noise, industrial drone, and classic melodies and rhythms. Available in three colors -- black, chrome and red -- the palm-sized unit (size: w67mm x h69mm x d35mm) features a built-in speaker, volume control, pitch-shift control and loop selector switch. Note: GRISTLEISM does not feature an audio output socket or a DC power input socket. GRISTLEISM features more loops and almost twice the frequency range of the Buddha Machine. GRISTLEISM is powered by two AA batteries [not included] and is the world's first and only portable TG aural exciter! GRISTLEISM was born from a collaboration between Industrial Records, Throbbing Gristle and Christiaan Virant (the creator of the original FM3 Buddha Machines) and is packaged in an exquisite "Chinese paper-cut" wrapping, featuring a repeating TG logo pattern, foil embossing and UV ink.
