Organ Thing of The Day: It was forty years ago this very day, as someone just pointed out on social media, actually it was film maker Gavin Toomey, let’s give him credit, It was forty years ago this very day, February 16th, right over the street from us here in the Organ bunker in Hackney, right over there behind the black door on Martello Street in what was then the Throbbing Gristle studio that Heathen Earth was recorded – “probably one of Throbbing Gristle’s most illustrious looking albums, recorded in a very live way as a simple one take. This documents the entire recording duration. Between 8pm – 9pm, Feb 16 (Saturday) 1980”. if we open the organ studio door they could probably hear it over there there. That film is a real document of the times, especially if you live around here…
