Genesis P-Orridge (1949 - )

Biography

Genesis P-Orridge (born Neil Andrew Megson February 22, 1950, or May 22, 1949), is an English performer, musician, writer and artist. His early confrontational performance work with COUM Transmissions in the late 1960s - early 1970s along with the original Industrial band Throbbing Gristle, which dealt with subjects such as prostitution, pornography, serial killers and occultism, generated controversy. Later musical work with Psychic TV received wider exposure, including some chart-topping singles. GP-O can be found on well over 200 releases.

He has two daughters, named Caresse and Genesse, with his former wife and creative partner, Paula (aka Alaura O'Dell). --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genesis_P-Orridge [Mar 2005]
