Psychic TV

Psychic TV will always be ahead of the times. Formed in 1981 by multimedia provocateurs Genesis P-Orridge and Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson, the founding members of the influential British industrial performance group Throbbing Gristle created a platform for expression unlike any other before or since. First and foremost, Psychic TV isn’t a band — it’s a constantly evolving cultural endeavor. Throughout the collective’s combative history, P-Orridge and his revolving cast of co-conspirators have pushed the boundaries of perception in music, philosophy and sexual identity. The 2011 biography “The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye” chronicles P-Orridge and late lover Lady Jaye’s desire to merge their identities through plastic surgery. Live, it creates a tribal tapestry of premeditated and improvisational sensory subversions built on bringing intensity to the moment. Psychic TV messes with minds Sunday, Sept. 6, at Strange Matter. Baltimore sludge metalists Corpse Light and Richmond analog experimentalists Mutwawa open. Doors for open the 18-and-older show open at 8 p.m. $20-$22. strangematterrva.com.
