Music From The Death Factory - Rafters 4th December

THROBBING GRISTLE Music From The Death Factory (Super, super rare & limited 1980 UK vintage 23.5" x 16.5" concert poster, printed on thick white paper stock in foreboding black & white. This incredible find is the first of its kind here at EIL. It has been stored flat since it was made & dates from December 1980. We know this as this particular example is historically annotated with the venue & date in blue pen in large lettering top & bottom ['4 Dec - Rafters'] - & it looks like it was a pretty uncompromising gig! The concert that night was filmed, as there were both cassette & VHS releases made. The terrifying image on the poster is of an unspecified Nazi death camp, & we can confirm that it was the first official TG poster, with 'death camp' being the name of the band's studio in Hackney, situated near the plague burial pits in London Fields. It was also the title of one of their first cassette only releases in 1976. This particular poster was made in very small quantities, printed exclusively by Walker Prints, & their London printers name & telephone number can be seen bottom right. We know that Rafters was a club that opened in the early '70s & quickly became synonymous with live bands when punk took off in 1976 [incidentally, Rob Gretton, New Order's manager, was the DJ there, & it also operated a jazz/funk/soul night [20 Jazz Funk Greats, mr DJ?]]. The poster remains in Excellent condition, having been stored correctly & away from direct sunlight for decades it would seem. On close inspection, the poster remains a nice off white, & you can see some ever so faint wear over the years to a few edges but very minor. If there was ever a forthcoming TG/Industrial exhibition, you would want this poster to be there! One for the serious collector...)
