HARRPUMPH! I don’t know how I missed last year’s publication of NEKROPHILE full set by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge… but I did. However it seems like there are still copies available for 65Euro – NOT CHEAP but considering what what a lot of occult books go for new, let alone after a couple years, not horrible. The publisher’s site says:
Published by Timeless Ed. – 2018 – France
25 x 32 cm – 284 pages in 2 volumes – Hardcovers
Limited to 50 copies
This is set is composed of “Archives & Documents” in cream version and “Prophecies & Messages” in red & golden version
Timeless is extremely pleased to present something truly unique! You might have seen Gen mention preparing the publication of h/er notebooks in the recent NY Times article. (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/09/arts/music/genesis-p-orridge-throbbing-gristle.html)
This is it: culled from h/er private mostly unpublished archives, the 1st volume called “Archives and Documents” presents 152 full colour pages of crucial early art terrorism like h/er little seen Nekrophile zine, reproduced here in full. Nekrophile magazine was conceived in 1968 by GPO as a sole and only issue. The collages, drawings, poems and texts gathered in it deal with the themes that will prevail in the iconography of Industrial Music.
This volume also displays ultra rare TG and PTV documents commented by GPO and that are not the same old exponents that a Google image search will yield.(no ticket stubs or tape cover designs here).
Edited by Nicolas Ballet with personal explanations and insights added by GPO, this volume is an essential visual document of Gen’s contributions to art and culture from the mid 1960s onwards with a strong emphasis on that most controversial and rewarding period of the late 70s and early 80s.
The second book (Prophecies & Messages) focuses on even more personal and magickal aspects that are the very heart of GPO’s life and art, it contains the reproduction of two magical and richly illustrated scrapbooks selected by Nicolas Ballet.
Unparalleled documents of a virtual spiritual journey into he/r occult practices, essential for students of contemporary esotericism.
These books are an indispensible gift for the industrial music fan, the connoisseur of 20th and 21st century art and the novice and experts of the byways of the occult, prepared with the full collaboration of and overseen by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, it is futile to stress that this no less than a visual companion piece to the Psychick Bible.
