But P-Orridge has come back with a vengeance of late: Throbbing Gristle reunited and released the powerful return-to-form album The Endless Not earlier this year. And Psychic TV now dubbed PTV3 is currently touring in support of the bands first album in 12 years, Hell Is Invisible ... Heaven Is Her/e, a surprisingly straightforward offering ranging from boisterous anthem rock to drifting hypno-ballads. Yet its the current gender-bending PTV aesthetic that really ups the ante: P-Orridge and fellow bandmember/other half Lady Jaye Breyer have been getting cosmetic surgery in recent years in order to look more like each other, with P-Orridge getting breast implants and lip injections. Yikes. Expect serious psychedelic experimental glam when Psychic TV plays with Brian Jonestown Massacre spin-offs the Dilettantes.
