Industrial Music for Industrial People

Comments to Throbbing Gristle's "Psychic Rally in Heaven" clear up the origin of the term "industrial music".

Sleeve note to The Industrial Records Story 1976-1981 says "TG themselves decided to call the label Industrial Records Limited ........ It was Monte Cazazza who suggested the slogan Industrial Music for Industrial People". And the album has an SPK track on too!

It is remarkable how distinctive anything directed by Derek Jarmen looks even after decades of imitators. Time for another look at "The Queen is Dead" by the Smiths.
