I finally got to meet up with my dear friend Genesis Breyer P-Orridge last night. I’ve  know Gen since I first moved to London in the early 80’s, before that  I was a devoted fan of his/her two bands, Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, actually  I still am.  Gen is one of the last of a dying breed, an extraordinary league of gentle(wo)men that share their radical insights, shamanistic skills to guide us away from the mindless mob  that’s bombarded by brands, brainwashed by corporations and beaten down by government control into a ‘police’ state of submission.  Of course he/she doe;s it with such devilish  PANache! I also got to meet one of  my  favourite pooches MUSTY DAGGER.  

  We escorted  Musty on her evening stroll, the wind was  cruelly cold, the mercury had dropped well below zero … Gen turned to Musty who was pulling at her lead to sniff a  shrub  and screeched “oh Musty … its far cold to0  spend so  long  checking   your PeeMails !! ” 

Afterwards Gen showed me footage from a forthcoming documentary that focused on  his/her visit to a voodoo village in Africa.  Mind blowing stuff!

Gen also  took  me along as his/her  plus one to see  ………

THE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Beauty and beast 2

A bedtime story for adults starring a thalidomide actor  (Mat Fraser) and one of the queens of the burlesque scene, Julie Atlas. Muz The  husband and wife actors  met while working in a sideshow on Coney Island.

The captivating and enchanting production was a magical sexual journey that deviated from the classic fairytale to poke fun at our uncomfortableness with disability, and let us know that some beasts aren’t  ever going to turn into Prince Charming but we can still  fall  head-over-heels in love  with them. And  to drive the point home, the real-life lovers stripped off and demonstrated their  favoured  positions for the beast with two backs.
