RhoDeo 1248 Beats

Hello, as lists start to appear all over the place as to who produced the best music of 2012, you won't hear a comment from me as I always found it odd to compare apples and pears not to mention the odd mango or green banana. If you're lucky you picked up something that stuck, as it happens i watched Later tonight and The Weeknd impressed me live as well, anyway releasing a quality triple album this day and age is a mean feat in itself. Other highlights for me The Chromatics and Tame Impala, sure there were plenty of others but acts with a history can rarely repeat the impact they once made.

It's about beats here i thought  the 'dusty' Goldy Rhox inbetweenie rather fitted the Psychic TV postings trip we make this week, it may sound as much but really isn't considering their output. Bleep.. Bleep.. N'Joy

It was at this point that Genesis became interested in acid house and techno. Alex Fergusson left and was replaced with techno artist Fred Gianelli. Beginning in 1988, P-Orridge became a pioneer on the British club and rave scene. Records from the Chicago house scene by Frankie Knuckles and Farley Jackmaster Funk made their way to London, and when P-Orridge noticed the word "acid" on one of them, he dubbed the British psychedelic variation "acid house" and began recording and experimenting with the style on Jack the Tab: Acid Tablets, Vol. 1 and Towards Thee Infinite Beat. P-Orridge has since released albums under the name Psychic TV as well as using a variety of aliases to produce "compilation" albums actually featuring all his own music. Several Psychic TV collections, as well as new material, appeared in the '90s; the best of the retrospectives are the two singles compilations Hex Sex and Godstar, and the 1999 overview Best Ov: Time's Up. New Psychic TV material took a backseat as P-Orridge's commitment to his spoken word project Thee Majesty and a new philosophy he dubbed "Pandrogeny" occupied his time. In 92 Genesis got into rough weather thanks to a fabricated accusation of satanic abuse, he exiled to California, shortly after moving to the US, P-Orridge underwent a divorce which traumatized him immensely. Most of the output during this period was made up of re-releases of earlier albums, especially by industrial music record labels who released the albums as a "paying of respects" to the founder of industrial music.

In 1992 Kim Cascone (founder of Silent Records) introduced P-Orridge to Larry Thrasher, co-founder of the mid 80's San Francisco experimental noise band Thessalonians. This began a new period with Psychic TV returning to its psychedelic pop roots with Thrasher co-producing and co-writing the critically acclaimed Trip/Reset as well as the album "Cold Blue Torch" and new experimental explorations which centered around the spoken word poetry of P-orridge in releases like "Thee Fractured Garden" and "Breathe". "Thee Fractured Garden" was a seminal example of this period where Psychic TV blended ambient music, samples and sound collages with spoken word. This eventually led P-Orridge and Thrasher to the create several offshoot groups Splinter Test and later Thee Majesty, which focused on the spoken word and sonic experiments.

Other notable releases upon which P-Orridge collaborated with Thrasher were the Electric Newspapers, a series of open source sample releases that blurred the sampling CD concept with a stream of consciousness listening experience. Material from the Electric Newspaper series of releases (there are six in total, but only four have been released) is mostly taken from the CDs PTV released with Thrasher along with contributors such as Skinny Puppy and other notable musical allies of this time.

The original motivation for the Electric Newspaper series was to ensure that the PTV sample files were archived after the loss of the entire PTV sampling library in the dramatic five alarm fire at the Houdini Mansion on Laurel Canyon in Hollywood. This fire, which burned down the 18,000 sq ft (1,700 m2) mansion, left P-Orridge in the intensive care unit at Cedar Sinai hospital with life-threatening injuries after he jumped from their bedroom windows to escape the flames. Results of this event sent P-Orridge on a two-year health sabbatical to recover, during which he was involved in a million dollar lawsuit against Rick Rubin, who owned the Houdini Mansion. P-Orridge won the case, but was left with a metal plate and eight screws in his permanently disabled and reconstructed arm.

In 1998 P-Orridge announced that he primarily wanted to move into spoken word, which is when Campagna left the band to pursue his own projects, and turned to focus on Thee Majesty with musical lineup of Larry Thrasher and Bryin Dall. Thee Majesty continues to perform to large halls and galleries in Europe playing improvised sound sculpture to mostly improvised spoken word.  A final disconcert was announced and held at the Royal Festival Hall, London in May 1999... to be continued tomorrow

This Infinite Beat remix album includes reworkings of tracks by a host of PTV associates, including Dave Ball, Andy Falconer, Jack the Tab and Evil Eddie. Although most of the tracks have the blander qualities of much acid-house, Falconer's mix of "Bliss" and DJ Sugar Jay's mix of "Horror House" are a bit more together than most.

Godstar was meant to be a "best-of" for fans without access to Genesis P-Orridge's constant output of music in the 1980s. By cutting away the excess that haunts most Psychic TV albums, what is revealed is how original and creative a force they had the potential to be. All three versions of the title track work as fitting tributes to the Rolling Stones' Brian Jones, while their cover of the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" is a charged, vibrant undertaking of a pop classic. But nothing on the album compares to the sprawling "Roman P (Sordide Sentimental Mix)," the drug-fueled centerpiece. Droning on for almost ten minutes with continued intensity, it builds into a psychedelic epic, colored with noisy guitar solos and tribal drum beats. Some may be offset by P-Orridge's blatant shock tactics ("Neurology" features samples of Charles Manson and Jim Jones in opposing stereo channels) and the album's lack of continuity, but fans of creative electronic music will find this to be a good introduction to an important artist.

Some of the single mixes present are difficult to locate elsewhere, making this package enticing for devoted fans as well.
