Genesis Breyer P-Orridge tag sale
Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is not just an genre-founding musician, a genre-defying artist, a social pioneer, an underground legend and an alchemist — s/he’s one of thee formative influences on us over here at Famous Accountants. We discovered her way back when, circa 1987 (when s/he was merely a he), because of RE/Search. Remember those books? Well, we were obsessed with them and devoured every single issue we could get a hold of: RE/Search #4/5: W.S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Throbbing Gristle, RE/Search #6/7: Industrial Culture Handbook and RE/Search #12: Modern Primitives. And one of our big discoveries in this reverie was Genesis P-Orridge. S/he was one of thee prominent interview subjects in those books. Those interviews, he/r words, shaped our young minds. We used to freak our friends out by foisting Genesis’ pierced member on them. Nevertheless, we’ve been curious about and interested in what s/he’s been up to ever since. So, it’s with that personal history that we are joyously honored to host the Genesis Breyer P-Orridge Tag Sale at Famous Accountants. (Martha Rosler? Yeah, whatever, man… Materialists are the ones who are obsessed with materialism.) Special thanks to Jessica Ralli.
