what is the fricken deal with this guy? why does genesis p orridge obsess over him? why is he regarded so highly among industrial fans?
>>
Who is Genesis P. Orridge?
>>
its an effete affectation
>>
>>7670197
You're completely ignorant of music.
>>
Inspired the best Duran Duran song, killed his wife and got away with it, let his young son live with him in a Moroccan gay community and probably get bumraped,managed the fine line between being vulgar but not banal, experimented with cutting up/fragmenting language when that shit was cool, dressed sharp. Based/10

>>7670233

you forgot to mention, wrote a book whose reviews inspired a six-month long shit-fight in the pages of the Times Literary supplement (called "Ughh!") and which was described at the time as the book that blew literature apart.

as for Genesis P Orridge... his writings are so tightly woven and convoluted that i doubt even he knows what he's talking about. if you can find a pdf of his work "Esoterrorism", you can check it out for yourself.
>>
>>7670190
he writes some good boner inducing boipussy snuff and rape porn
>>
>>7670248
which books have that? I'm in it for the boypussi.
>>
>>7670215
Sorry, I only listen to real music.
>>
>>7670252
then you'll remain an ignorant pleb who thinks he's being spoon fed the right music, while at the same time never developing his own taste.
>>
>>7670253
I only listen to music that requires significant intellectual work to appreciate, so that does not apply to me.
>>
>>7670250
pretty much everything post-Queer oddly enough. (Queer was mostly about his pathetic beta obsession with a straight guy)
They do get a bit repetitive though
Naked Lunch, The Wild Boys, and Cities of the Red Night have healthy doses of boipussy though

>>
>>7670262
if you're taking "significant intellectual work" to appreciate the music you listen to, it probably sucks and you have no idea how to enjoy music. Dumb cunts like you shouldn't talk about music.
>>
his prose is stilted and forced and his novels are entirely nonsense. the best you can say about his works is that "they're an experience like no other" an entirely shitty one. the worst of the beats.
>>
>>7670267
It is the greatest music being created today, and provides much more pleasure than any of the popular trash you listen to, provided you're willing to put in the work to appreciate it. I'm sorry you're unintelligent.
>>
>>7670274
here's my last.fm. feel free to browse through my library of statistics and tell me what you think of my taste. you can look at the past 7 days or all the music I've listened to since 2012. http://www.last.fm/user/metaldiscussor

You're not going to make it bro.
>>
>>7670276
lol
>>
>>7670285
what's the matter? don't you enjoy this back and forth? go on, tell me what you think of my taste. be sure to give your opinion on the artists I listen to. I want to see how much you really know about music.
>>
>>7670276

lol

I don't really care what you listen to, but it's always funny when someone thinks listening to a couple famous classical composers when everything else they listen to is pop genre stuff makes them particularly musically knowledgeable. It's certainly true that I haven't heard of 99% of the crap you have on there, but that doesn't matter, because if something's good, then I know I'll have heard of it.

>if something is good then I'll have heard of it
Just keep making yourself look stupider for me. Good.
>>
>>7670324
You might as well say that reading thousands of shitty obscure Tolkien-clone fantasy novels makes you a literary scholar because you know who William Shakespeare and James Joyce are.
>>

>>7670324
>>7670320
This discussion is actually really relevant to William S. Burroughs because he's terrible popular trash as well.
>>
>>7670190
Cities of the Red Night is a right horny book.
