I'd like to know more about the transition between Throbbing Gristle to Circuit Bending, plz.
There was a pretty big gap between my introduction to TG and Circuit Bending.. like about 14 years. I guess after getting turned on to TG and NWW I made my first noise recordings in the late 80's. But then I phased out of that and didn't get back into it until I came upon circuit bending, from there I started seeing lots of local acts, I can't even begin to pinpoint who all it was. I also hooked up with Roilnoise records shortly after Circuit Bending.
I saw Merzbow in the mid 90's but but was really unimpressed so I didn't investigate that much and didn't start collecting noise other than classic industrial and experimental until the year 2003-4 or so.
