I notice how The Guardian isn't exactly celebratory but rather cautious in this article.

As posted by me hours ago:

But i suppose it deserves a thread. I've made my views known and will exercise the Fourth Power out of respect to others who don't share them.

I've been looking out for any tributes from artists.

 

I found an article that states that Cold Cave, Drew Daniel (of Matmos) (who wrote the 33 1/3 on 20 Jazz Funk Greats), cEvin Key (of Skinny Puppy), Robin Rimbaud (Scanner), Machinedrum, Zola Jesus, Dâm-Funk, Laura Jane Grace have given tributes.  

 

I've heard of Skinny Puppy but not the other guys.

The Guardian has another article:

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/mar/15/genesis-p-orridge-troubling-catalyst-who-loathed-rock-yet-changed-it-for-ever

Not really my scene (scene one, you've scene 'em all, as my mum used to say), but offered here as a token of my service to this LAShTAL community.

Not really my scene

I know what you mean, although the first two Psychic TV albums are among my favourites by any artist. Having said that, if stuck on my Desert Island and required to rescue only one CD, it's more likely to be something by Led Zeppelin or Marillion (Fish era).

I am afraid that looking at photos of Mr/Miss Orridge from the last 20 years has always made me feel queasy. His/her music has always been good, though.

TG with their techno-DIY ethos and confrontational controversial preoccupations were very influential on the explosive phenomenons that became known as 'Industrial music' and so on.   Chicago WAXTRAX RECORDS (all of their releases are now providing a fitting soundtrack for the present  world war (COVID10) situation we are now in  Ministry, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Revolting Cocks, KMFDM so on) were the fulcrum for that genre.

 

Here's a trailer for WAXTRAX   documentary;
