X-TG came into being after Genesis P-Orridge quit the band Throbbing Gristle at the beginning of their 2010 European tour. To continue with the tour the rest of Throbbing Gristle, Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson, and Cosey Fanny Tutti, created X-TG.Unfortunately X-TG were only able to perform two shows, one in Porto, Portugal, and one in Bologna Italy, before Peter Christopherson's death in late November in his sleep, abruptly ending the project.So far X-TG has released two albums, and more uncollected and live material by the trio is planned for release in the future.

5 stars Faet narok... Wandering... the name must've been chosen by Sleazy, for it is Thai. He spent his last few years in Bangkok, you see. But wandering... nothing else can better describe this eerie gem from three-fourths of the founding band of industrial. The album mainly leans towards a sort of industrial ambient, creepily filling your speakers with the sounds of dark forests and misdirection. Some more standard industrial also figures, including the strange, spooky "Four", ever mechanical, foreboding. It sounds like something off the soundtrack to the game "OFF". Altogether this record makes even most isolationism ambient sound as cuddly as Jon Anderson's voice. The band pulls off this darkness with all the skill and ease with which they tackled their old music, in fact showing some development in the band in terms of styles they use. Probably some of the darkest relaxation music ever, highly recommended to fans of Univers Zero and dark ambient who want more of that, as well as the industrial crowd.

— First review of this album —
5 stars Over the course of Throbbing Gristle's second time together, mastermind Genesis P-Orridge found himself wishing to focus on non-musical projects like in the old COUM Transmissions days, leaving the rest of the band ample room to do as they wish even before P-Orrdige officially jumped ship to leave the band as X-TG. This album, comparable in construction to "The White Album", "Tanz der Lemminge", and "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below", is a posthumous monument to the crazy musical antics the group got up to. Disc One was the late great Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson's idea of a cover of and tribute to Nico's famed art album "Desertshore" that she made with John Cale, being crafted from an open studio session that lasted over three days, from there paired down and crossed with later rerecordings. Disc Two is "The Final Report", a collection of various excellent tracks the band recorded at other times. The album is as dark, eerie, strange, and perfect as any TG release, though now the band at times also takes a step back to do ambient tracks, themselves great. Most tracks are industrial goodness, with "Stasis", "What He Said", "Emerge To Space Jazz", "The Falconer", and "Afraid" being particular highlights. The last of these is a sterling cover of part of "Desertshore", with one of the many guests for the Desertshore Sessions, Sasha Grey, providing killer vocals, and the band's trademark Gristleizer making a triumphant return. "Abscheid"'s cover is one of the ambient/post-industrial leaning tracks, with Cosey Fanni-Tutti playing a killer guitar. Beautifully packaged by Sleazy to resemble the cassette cases of punk and industrial's heyday, this is a required listen for industrial people, and adventurous fans of prog electronic and the works of White Noise, Can, and Kluster should check this out.
