Biography

Psychic TV is a video art and music group that primarily performs , , and music. The band was formed by performance artist Genesis P-Orridge and video director Peter Christopherson (after the break up of Throbbing Gristle) together with musician and producer Alex Fergusson (ex-Alternative TV). Christopherson left to form Coil with fellow PTV member John Balance around 1984, and Fergusson left in 1987, leaving P-Orridge in charge of a rotating band lineup.

Contributions to Psychic TV have included artists such as Coil, Current 93, Hafler Trio, The Cult, White Stains, Soft Cell, XKP, Master Musicians of Jajouka, Matthew Best, Daniel Simon Black, Bill Breeze, Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, Derek Jarman, Fred Giannelli, John “Zoskia” Gosling, Timothy Leary, Rose McDowall, Stephen Kent, Vagina Dentata Organ, Andrew Weatherall, Z’EV, Zef Noi$e, and many others.

PTV can not be seen as regular band/group but more as a collective of musicans, artists, painters and others that made their contribution under the PTV umbrella. PTV had for many years their own record label Temple where they released music by PTV as well as Dave Ball (ex Soft Cell) and others. In many ways PTV followed in the same lane as Throbbing Gristle did, but did it into something more. The first years of PTV the music was experimental and sometimes industrial. Later they changed their musical direction into electronica as well as techno.

    Люди не умеют ни играть, ни петь, зато имеют образ. Это хороший театр абсурда, но не музыка, типа Звуки Му. Хотя, кислотные альбомы неплохие, не хуже рядового клубняка конца 80-х, только поданы элитарно.

    По большому счёту, пёрнуть в автобусе тоже весьма концептуально и революционно.

    пи-орридж действительно гений, по сути эта группа - настоящая революция в восприятии музыки, в ее концептуальном восприятии. хотя, музыкально TG вставляют куда больше
