Psychic TV/PTV3, the band led by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has announced European tour dates this month, North American dates in June and the release of a new studio album in September.
Among Genesis’ many other accomplishments is co-founding TOPY. Wikipedia states:
“In 1981, P-Orridge co-founded Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth, an informal occult order influenced by chaos magic and experimental music. P-Orridge was often seen as the group’s leader, but rejected that position, and left the group in 1991. Amid the Satanic ritual abuse hysteria, a 1992 Channel 4 documentary accused P-Orridge of sexually abusing children, resulting in a police investigation. P-Orridge was subsequently cleared and Channel 4 retracted their allegation. P-Orridge left the United Kingdom as a result of the incident and settled in New York City. There, P-Orridge married Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge in 1993, and together they embarked on the Pandrogeny Project, an attempt to unite as a “pandrogyne”, or single entity, through the use of surgical body modification to physically resemble one another. P-Orridge continued with this project of body modification after Lady Jaye’s 2007 death. Although involved in reunions of both Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV in the 2000s, s/he retired from music to focus on other artistic mediums in 2009. P-Orridge is credited on over 200 releases. A controversial figure with an anti-establishment stance, P-Orridge has been heavily criticised by the British press and politicians, while also acquiring the moniker “the Godfather of Industrial Music.”
