Genesis P Orridge is gone...

More notorious and lugubrious than celebrated but what a character.

Ah he sold his boxes of old stuff to the Tate Modern, I think he was celebrated.

I certainly got a lot out of TG and he was a big part of it.

An interesting character. Not really likeable - but that's missing the point somewhat perhaps - and he comes out of Cosi's book looking very shabby indeed* but a real catalyst and highly creative ideas person nonetheless.

I still don't know what to make of his Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth goings-on in Brighton in the early '90s.
There were all sorts of dubious things alleged - I suppose the fact that no now fully grown kids have ever come forward with any scandal shows it was all bollocks but it was and still is all a bit too believable, sadly.

RIP GPO


*She forgave him (time and time again) so I don't see why we shouldn't.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.
