Soundtrack Details: 'The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye' Is A Good Psychic TV Greatest Hits Package

The Playlist By Rodrigo Perez | The Playlist March 7, 2012 at 6:17PM

The documentary “The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye” hits theaters in New York in limited release this weekend. It’s an utterly fascinating and bizarre (sometimes queasy) look at identity and pandrogny (review later this week) that happens to center around seminal experimental music figure Genesis P-Orridge, of atonal, industrial noisemakers Throbbing Gristle, who went on to form the still-experimental, but more palatable Psychic TV.

The Ballad of Genesis & Lady Jaye

The documentary “The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye” hits theaters in New York in limited release this weekend. It’s an utterly fascinating and bizarre (sometimes queasy) look at identity and pandrogny (review later this week) that happens to center around seminal experimental music figure Genesis P-Orridge, of atonal, industrial noisemakers Throbbing Gristle, who went on to form the still-experimental, but more palatable Psychic TV.

The soundtrack album from Sweet Nothing Records hits on March 12th. And while this writer can’t claim to be any kind of Psychic TV expert -- their discography has more than 33 studio albums ranging as far back as 1982, plus over 40 live albums -- one thing this soundtrack album reminds us is that for all their sonic collages, spoken word pieces and multi-media-collective and dada-ist leanings they could bust out a lovely, psychedelic tune in the vein of the Velvet Underground (or more recent example Spaceman 3) if and so they chose, and the latter half of the soundtrack is deep evidence of such.
