Burroughs and Gysin always used to say, Nothing is true, everything is permitted. So, you know, there is no definitive reality, and any interpretation of existing or appearing to exist here is as true as any other. And so we did the album with him. We'd all read about the cut-up experiments in books, but nobody had heard them. So I said, We want to hear them, what did they sound like . P-Orridges early confrontational performance work in Coum Transmissions in the late 1960s and early 1970s along with the industrial band Throbbing Gristle, which dealt with subjects such as prostitution, pornography, serial killers, occultism, and P-Orridges own exploration of gender issues, generated controversy.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge born Neil Andrew Megson 22 February 1950 14 March 2020 was an English singer-songwriter, musician, poet, performance artist, and occultist who rose to notability as the founder of the COUM Transmissions artistic collective and lead vocalist of seminal industrial band Throbbing Gristle.

The artist is musicianoccultistprofessional provocateur Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and the method - the cut-up - is a style of Dada collage. Popularized by Beat generation artists Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs, cutting up involves rearranging pieces of texts into a new whole: literally dissecting with scissors and stitching back together. Enter Breyer P-Orridge, a cut-up herself: a pandrogyne, a third being neither man nor woman. Friend and collaborator Genesis P-Orridge has died after a long battle with illness. She was a true artistic pioneer and will sadly be missed. Genesis P-Orridge, of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, Dies at 70. By A. Inspired in equal parts by Anthony Burgess A Clockwork Orange, the Merry Pranksters, William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin, P-Orridge made similar cut-up techniques his own. When P-Orridge got to London in the mid-1970s, the artists main vehicle became Throbbing Gristle, or as it was best known, TG
