Genesis P-Orridge (& Thee Early Worm) Early worm (recordings 1968)/Coum Transmissions The sound of Porridge bubbling (recordings 1971)/

Fondati da Andrew Megson, alias Genesis P-Orridge, i Coum Transmissions sono il primo tassello di una esperienza artistica, sociale, prima che teatrale e musicale, da Ultimi giorni dell'umanità. Diversioni sessuali, lazzi antireligiosi, disprezzo antiborghese, provocazioni, (auto)umiliazioni d'ogni residuo umanistico furono il presagio di uno sfacelo inevitabile e, ormai, attuale.
Nei solchi di queste prove si ritrovano tutti gli elementi dell'industrial futuro e quelli della successiva produzione Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV.
Includo anche una serie di rare registrazioni di Megson ancor più risalenti (1968!).

  1. Dear Vlad.

    I really like your wide/broad taste in music. Glad with a lot of it: but especially the NWW list. Searching for certain titles for a lot of years. You post some of the hard to get!

    Thanks. Appreciate it.

    1. Thank you. Two NWW volumes ready for Christmas.
