Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

Early Worm


The legendary and never before heard 1968 recordings of Genesis P-Orridge and friends, transferred and mastered from the original tapes contained within the Porridge With Everything Archives.

Recorded in a roof space attic during the summer of 1968 by Genesis P-Orridge (then a 18 year old Neil Andrew Megson) and friends, and later pressed to a single acetate in 1969. This recording is probably the most documented, yet never heard, missing piece of musical history in the legacy of COUM Transmissions, Throbbing Gristle, and Psychic TV. Sounds of clattering instruments, vocal experiments and the innocent absurdity of youth channeling influences of psychedelia, Fluxus, John Cage and beatnik Bohemia which draws a loose sketch of the panoramic life to come for Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

Remastered and preserved in a limited vinyl pressing, with liner notes written by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge recalling the zeitgeist of the late 60′s UK underground. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.

The first release on Dais Records, with catalog number DAIS001.
