In 'Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Sacred Intent,' three decades of revolutionary thought, action and spirit

Featured photograph is of artist, musician and pandrogeny pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge with their dog, Musty Dagger, in New York, 2013. It is reproduced from one of our most highly anticipated books of the season, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Sacred Intent, a collection of interviews between Breyer P-Orridge and Trapart publisher Carl Abrahamsson conducted from 1986—when P-Orridge was fronting Psychic TV en route from COUM Transmissions and Throbbing Gristle—and 2019, when leukemia accelerated, forcing them to contemplate "a world without Gen in it." These are historic conversations, lending insight into half a century of revolutionary thought, action and spirit. But they are also so warm, intimate and real. In 2013, Abrahamsson asked what made Breyer P-Orridge happy. "Very little since Lady Jaye dropped her body, to be honest," they said, "compared to every minute filled with happiness and love by Jaye," their partner in pandrogeny, who died in 2007. And yet, "Musty Dagger, she makes me happy," they allowed. "We can literally just lie on the bed for hours and play, and she’ll attack the toys and they’ll squeak, and when she grabs one of the squeakers she’ll just do it over and over… It’s nice to have something that’s living to touch. That’s what we miss the most; having someone to hold or touch..." RIP Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, who died on March 14, 2020.
