Mission of Dead Souls is a recording of the final performance of Throbbing Gristle before their initial breakup. The concert took place in San Francisco on 29 May 1981. The album was originally released as part of the Fetish box set, consisting of four old albums and this album that was exclusive to the box, but when Mute Records picked up the Throbbing Gristle catalogue, this was one of the albums that was picked up, making this one of the most common Throbbing Gristle albums.

Mission of Dead Souls documents Throbbing Gristle's last live performance in San Francisco before splinting into Coil, Psychic TV, and Chris & Cosey. The recording sounds like it was sourced from an audience tape with the surrounding attendees carrying on conversations, and some drastic stereo panning makes it a poor introduction to the band. Unfortunate, since the show finds the band especially driven and menacing. It's a given that TG's studio work was noisy and abstract, but more was left to chance in better gigs like this, with primitive synthesizers and other electronic. Mission Of Dead Souls starts with a faint scream. It's probably from the crowd, but as with so many of the sounds on this 1981 recording of a Throbbing Gristle gig, their last before splitting up, its source is not entirely certain. It's animalistic, even demonic, pitched just at that point of frenzy where excitement and terror are indistinguishable. And it sets the tone perfectly for this fever dream of a concert. The San Francisco audience is clearly keyed right into it. Album 1981 10 Songs. 2018 Industrial Records Mute Artists Limited. More By Throbbing Gristle. Thirty-Second Annual Report.
