In the 1970s, a British MP described Genesis P-Orridge and his band Throbbing Gristle as “wreckers of Western civilization.” What was intended as an insult became an artistic principle. For 45 years now, Genesis P-Orridge has been at the front of aesthetic extremism. His microcosm includes the atonal noise attacks of Industrial Music granddaddy Throbbing Gristle, the post-psychedelic sound garlands of Psychic TV and performance activities, whose pleasure in breaking taboos is reminiscent of the Vienna Actionism movement.
