Legendary music/art/video group Psychic TV have influenced rock & pop musicians since the early 80s, after the breakup of similarly influential band Throbbing Gristle which founding members Genisis P-Orridge and Peter Christophersen were also a part of. Over a period of 14 years (from 1982) they recorded and released dozens of live and studio albums ending up in the Guinness Book Of Records for releasing more albums in one year than any other artist (even Elvis!). Reactivated since 2003 they arrive in Oslo with what Genesis ‘the best version of Psychic TV ever’. Support comes from Beglomeg.
