Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

What's History


Originally released as a cassette on the cryptic Austrian tape label, Nekrophile, in 1983, this simplistic experimental recording was a industrial classic ahead of its time. Recorded in 1981 in the Hackney bedroom of Genesis P-Orridge, who at this point was romping through his final months in seminal industrial act Throbbing Gristle and sketching out what would be Psychic TV. Done as a spur of the ‘improvisational’ moment, Genesis was accompanied by then TG documentarian and video artist Stan Bingo to try out some new musical equipment and spun into a unplanned composition. This original recording, due to the scarcity of its original format was somewhat forgotten, only to be coveted by collectors. Limited to 500 copies.
