As the four members of influential industrial eccentrics Throbbing Gristle reform for the first time in 23 years to headline their RE-TG weekender in May, their comeback is heralded with a flurry of TG-related activity.

Following TG+’s 10-disc live box set, Mutant TG offers heavyweight admirers the chance to remix the group’s more orthodox tracks with the dancefloor in mind. Disappointingly reverent, both Carl Craig and Two Lone Swordsmen tackle “Still Walking” and “United” wearing kid gloves. However, the sublime “Hot On The Heels Of Love” enjoys an extended Balearic revision from Simon Ratcliffe of Basement Jaxx, while TG’s CarterTutti (formerly Chris & Cosey) flesh out “Hamburger Lady”. A modest addition to a formidable oeuvre.
