I only heard of him a few months ago, and have found myself listening to his interviews on youtube as im getting up in the morning. An intriguing character who has lived quite a life and has interesting opinions on everything....he also appears quite pretentious but i like the fact that he doesnt compromise or apologise for any of it. His superficiality is part of his 'art' and oddly complements it. He strikes me as someone who is at once loving, and also spiky and capable of airbrushing the past and revising his own history. I think he's a bit of an old grump but there's something about his fierce individuality and encouragement of that in others that appeals to me. I'm not familiar with the Throbbing Gristle back catalogue, but am very impressed with what i have heard on the mellotran. I think he is a bonafide artist of sorts. Haven't seen the documentary he did with Lady Jayne (actually busted my computer trying to download it before Christmas!! it looks great). I'm thinking of getting his book, that comes with the lofty title, Thee Psychik Bible. Not sure if i should be referring to them as 'he' btw! What are folk's thoughts on him, his art, message, and music? I'm sure there's a few experts on here who are very familiar with his work, back in the day. Thanks - there are a few old threads on him but different to this one. I appreciate people's thoughts and stories.
