On Friday, February 3, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM Genesis Breyer P-Orridge will be appearing on the Sonic Subversion show, along with filmmaker Marie Losier, to promote the documentary The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye (opening in San Francisco next month). Program host Brian Cox will interview Genesis and Marie on the new movie and various topics, and Gen will be playing music by PTV3 and other recordings. We at Radio Valencia are honored and excited to feature this legendary artist/provocateur as our special guest!
“Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has worn many faces to many people, even before plastic surgery sliced its way into the picture. Whether as a pioneer, a deviant, a devil, a saint, a shaman, a prankster, a philosopher, an occultist, a prophet – or, as one member of British parliament infamously declared, a “wrecker of civilization” – Genesis has projected a reflective kaleidoscope of society’s greatest ideals and worst fears. Sometimes frightening but always beautiful, one cannot help but be exquisitely mesmerized. First as the front man of the brain-frothing, white-knuckle industrial band Throbbing Gristle, then as the spiritual leader of the subsequent pre-rave ‘hyperdelic’ Psychic TV – or PTV3 in its current incarnation – the musician’s physicality and art have been mutually consequential and influential beyond words…”
