Anyone out there familiar with the androGENous teen sensations known as Tokio Hotel? All I know is that they're German and seem to have a mod'ed psychic cross as their logo. I've not heard a song nor read any interview.

Detractors, delays and near deaths.. [Sep. 9th, 2005|01:59 am]

The following has been lifted directly from the official GP-O site as posted by the PTV3 webpeople:

As to the fopi site. We all in PTV3 remain puzzled that there are no interviews with current active members of the band or Gen. It seems odd, though there must be a good reason, that only people who have left PTV or been asked to leave get interviewed. Not because that necessarily invalidates their opinions or interpretations but because there is more chance of the answers being coloured by bitterness or even anger. Frustration and disappointment.

We would like to see interviews with ACTIVE current PTV3 members, explaining WHY they emjoy being in PTV, why they chose to join despite the supposed ruthlessness and manipulations of Gen. How it feels being in PTV and what THEIR personal ideas and perspectives are on Life creativity and meaning.

Also, news on the delayed releases and GP-O's health:

GENESIS has been very seriously ill. It turns out that all through the PTV3 detour, and the TG reunion gigs s/he had walking pneumonia. This became so severe in Turin that s/he had to visit the emergency room at the hospital for treatment just to be able to play.

The doctors in New York said it is a miracle s/he didn't die. During routine tests xrays revealed what was initially thought to be lung cancer...fortunately it is NOT. But cat scans, echo cardiograms and other deep testing have shown sever lung damage and the pneumonia is still active.

As a result GEN is ordered to rest and undergo medical treatments to try and regain as much health as possible.

For 2-3 weeks we really were concerned for gen's life. Our apologies for being distracted as an extended family. But we hope those of you who really care, rather than casual or flippant visitors ( always also welcome) will understand our being distracted.

The good news is that the PTV3 album is recorded apart from some samples and overdubs by Lady Jaye and the others.

Larry Thrasher will be mixing the album in California.

It includes a mixture of old and new songs.

TG have almost completed the new studio album, basically Gen's health has delayed all projects to varying degrees. S/he apologises to you all. It is typical that s/he feels such a sense of duty to the art and music. The doctors have said, and we agree, that it is time for Gen to focus on being well and taking care of her SELF instead of trying to do more and more creative work.

As soon as the site is functioning properly we will assist Gen in catching up on some of the events that have gone on.

GODSTAR [2005 Deluxe Remastered] [Aug. 26th, 2005|04:44 pm]


Thee Description
Music history is cyclical: case in point, the time-traveling Godstar soundtrack. First created for an aborted film about Rolling Stones guitarist, Brian Jones, who drowned in a swimming pool in 1969, the songs were originally released on three separate recordings during the '80's. Finally, in 2004, the songs are presented for the first time as a two-CD recording.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is the primary composer and collaborates with more than a dozen musicians. P-Orridge is most infamous for writing often difficult and idiosyncratic experimental and industrial music for Throbbing Gristle. Here, he has created a layered homage to '60's psychedelic pop. However, after scraping away the thin patina, Psychic TV drops the summer of love in a blender to create music that is both familiar and stingingly novel.

The title cut is the soundtrack's centerpiece. "Godstar," which charted in England in the '80's, is a combination of sonorous chamber pop complete and irreverent lyrics. It will elicit guffawing - repeatedly, with six different versions to digest. Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys also receive a Psychic TV re-interpretation on their nearly note-for-note reconstruction of "Good Vibrations," and the more twisted "Amazing Vibrations." Both feature lilting harmonies; however, eventually creepy acid casualty samples are intermixed, and astutely add a foreboding tension to the track's beauty. Conversely, the version of "Je T' Aime, Moi Non Plus" is a sublime hoot. Psychic TV deftly over-sing (moan) the Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin duet that was banned throughout much of Europe in 1969 for its overtly sexual subject matter and presentation. Psychic TV created a soundtrack that is both a tribute and an insightful critique of the late '60's psychedelic music. --Sherman Wick, Cosmik Debris Magazine [links by YLT]

Thought some of you might be interested... [Jul. 10th, 2004|12:03 am]
I hope this isn't in bad taste or anything like that, but I am getting rid of most of my earthly possessions and thought some of you might be interested in benefiting from this. Check out seller Bowzerbullet on Ebay for a list of rare and out of print books. The money isn't so much of an issue as I have no reserve and am starting all the bids at a dollar. Thanks and hope this helps out some one.
