Industrial Records Ltd. are pleased to announce the birth of GRISTLEISM, the newest member of our Throbbing Gristle family.

Bastard offspring of now-famous ambient loop player the Buddha Machine, GRISTLEISM is part Industrial sound machine, part noise instrument.

Featuring thirteen original and uncompromising loops, GRISTLEISM delivers a mix of signature TG experimental noise, industrial drone, and classic melodies and rhythms.

Available in three colours – 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. GRISTLEISM features more loops and almost twice the frequency range of the Buddha Machine. GRISTLEISM is powered by two AA batteries 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 comes in two versions – Standard issue and collectible Badged Limited-Edition. Both versions are packaged in a exquisite ‘chinese paper-cut’ wrapping, featuring a repeating TG logo pattern, foil embossing and UV ink.

Note: Gristleism does not feature an audio output socket or a DC power input socket.

Black & Red powered by two AA batteries.
Chrome powered by two AAA batteries.
