Customer Reviews


Many people do not know that there was a second "Woodstock" era, with the anything goes party scene, experimentation - you name it, but it was very UNDERGROUND, and the folks at these parties weren't listening to Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendricks. Nooooo, those people, the reaaal crazy people, listened to tracks like "Acid Traxx" by Phuture, Force Legato (Oliver Lieb back then) and THIS! I know, because I went to several such parties and they were absolutely wild, and I had the best time of my life. "Meet Every Situation Head On" is a classic that drove people wild at those parties. Also hot was "Oxygen" and "Only Human" (on v. 3 apparently), "Last Night" (if you can believe that, listen to it and you'll see what I'm talking about), "Youth." Many of these tracks are totally out there, more out there than anything I have ever heard, and I have heard much in many states of mind. When this music was put on at parties people would actually freak out and leave (today we call them posers), because the music was just TOO WEIRD. And that left the interesting people at the party and you ended up with some pretty dang interesting parties that lasted 14 hours or more. If you want something very different, something perhaps shocking, and you like electronic music, well... good luck finding anything more strange. If you do, let me know and I'll buy it!

Wicked Cool

Hard to describe this wacked-out electronic groove. Kinda like William S. Burroughs playing with a Roland 808 synethesizer - no rules, no compromise, totally original. Rumor has it that back in the day in the Psychic TV recording studio one track was always left free of music in case a spirit wanted to say something in a song. You can love it, you can hate it, but you can't deny there ain't nothing out ther like it. I can't believe "Meet Every Situation Head On" isn't their heaviest downloaded song. It was the anthem of a movement of folks living life in an altered state of mind but that couldn't stand Phish or the Dead. One last thing, as far as not buying because of a royalty dispute? I figure the courts are more than able to handle that department. If G.P. Orridge and crew has the rights to this stuff, they'll get their dough, with interest. Seems strange, too. I never got the impression it was about money with these guys.


This is the best dance music from the late eighties. Nothing else out there like it. I have a better Psychic TV compilations on CD. But all that material is spread through out the "Origin of the Species" CD series.


Formed: 1981 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After Genesis P-Orridge dissolved the seminal industrial rock outfit Throbbing Gristle, he and Gristle cohort Peter Christopherson, plus Alternative TV's Alex Fergusson, formed Psychic TV in 1981 as a means of continuing their confrontational, shock-oriented approach to music and their multimedia live performances. Psychic TV draw much of their inspiration from the literary underground, including situationist philosophy, William Burroughs (who was a professed fan), the Marquis de Sade, and Philip...
