Vinyl LP pressing. Throbbing Gristle's second full-length, originally released in 1978, captures alienation in it's purest form. The line-up of Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson, Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti was a vehicle for everything bizarre, extreme and controversial. From the ravaged live track "Blood On The Floor" to the hostile phone recording on "Death Threats," TG lobotomized convention, whether musical or ideological. The lingering "Hamburger Lady" pulses with a story of a burn victim, and the band's restraint and careful composition makes it one of their best creations of all time, something absolutely terrifying. Full of tape-manipulation, computer noise and feedback, D.O.A. epitomizes Throbbing Gristle's unparalleled anti-music, cementing their status as "wreckers of civilization."
