Psychic TV

After the disbandment of Throbbing Gristle, Genesis P-Orridge founded Psychic TV in 1981 with Peter Christopherson and Alex Fergusson. Half-band, half-vehicle for the creative outpourings for the occultist artist collective Thee Temple Ov Psychic Youth, Psychic TV remains one of the most influential, groundbreaking, and pleasantly weird bands of the 1980s. Decidedly a step away from the avant-garde industrial noise of Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV experimented with psychedelic, punk, electronic music, acid house, and video art, and were particularly known for their intense and visceral live performances. The band also has an impressive creative lineage that includes cultural luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Derek Jarman, and Timothy Leary, among others. The band put out a large collection of releases during the 1980s, and in the mid-‘80s, they prolifically managed to release 14 albums within an 18-month period.



After breaking up in 1999, Genesis P-Orridge reformed the band as PTV3 in 2003 with New York artist and musician Edley ODowd (formerly of the legendary Toilet Boys), and they worked together to create a new vision and voice for Psychic TV. The result has been over a decade-long run of concerts and releases as Psychic TV / PTV3.
