Acid Tablets Volume One


Genesis P-Orridge’s deeply problematic cult leader behaviour over the years notwithstanding, their contribution to electronic and psychedelic music with Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV is undeniable. And this bizarre attempt to capture the energy of acid house – in partnership with the young DJ and archivist of psychedelia Richard Norris – is a vital part of that. It completely fails in capturing house music as such, being still stuck in the 80s industrial funk way of doing things, but in that failure it did create a demented, disturbing dayglo explosion of energy, ideas and inspiration.
