PTV3 Birmingham Academy 2 Tuesday 18th September 2007
You missed a treat Birmingham. Artist, inventor of industrial music, founder member of Throbbing Gristle, key player in the birth of of Acid House and general legend Mr Genesis P-Orridge and his new-ish line up of Psychic TV played to no more than about 40 people in what was, admittedly, a criminally underpromoted gig (the tickets only seemed to come on sale three weeks ago with no publicity whatsoever). It's late, I'm still kind of on Vegas time and I'm liable to ramble (never a good thing on a 'school' night) suffice to say that the whole experience was like watching a strange but hauntingly brilliant work of art come to life and mess with your mind, body and soul. Genius...sheer genius.
