'Journey Through A Body' (1982, Industrial Records), widely referred to as Throbbing Gristle's most haunting work, was recorded as a piece of radio art for Italian National Radio RAI, Rome in March 1981. Following Robert Wyatt's recommendation, RAI originally commissioned Cosey Fanni Tutti to create a sound work based on the theme of 'A Journey Through the Body'.

This went on to become a Throbbing Gristle project – first broadcast by the RAI, Journey Through a Body was the band's final studio recording prior to 2004's reactivation of the band.

Recorded in five days, a day per body section, the tracks were not pre-planned and nothing was re-recorded or added to after the track's initial recording, instead each track was mixed immediately.

"What's most noticeable about the album, as a sonic experience is the openness to acoustic instrumentation on display." (The Vinyl Factory) and Journey Through a Body stands as a perfect testament to Throbbing Gristle's artistic ethos.

Unavailable on vinyl since 1983, Journey Through a Body features photos from the session.
