CD1:
This record, Psychic TV Themes contains recordings made by Initiates of The Temple of Psychick Youth to accompany portions of the First Transmission, another PTV product. Although it is primarily soundtrack music, we have found that even on its own, its effects are considerable. Strange things happen. For that reason, and to demonstrate that our work is not governed by normal stylistic restrictions, it is included in this package. Almost all the instruments used were acoustic but many of them have specifically ritual or Psychic properties and that is why we chose to use them. Certainly the illogical intensity of these recordings far exceeds thos made with conventional acoustic instruments.
The music itself was designed not only as soundtrack but also for subsequent use by Initiates of The Temple Ov Psychick Youth in their rituals as Funcional music intended only to aid in the process of making things happen. It is a practical tool.
Thanks are due to Rod at Fetish Records who made this recording at Jacobs Studios possible.

CD5:
Recorded 22nd April 1984 at 'Eventwoks', Boston Massachusetts College of Arts, Massachusetts, USA.

On Easter Sunday, 22nd April 1984, Psychic TV, as composed of Genesis P-Orridge and John Gosling, gave a performance at the Longwood Theatre of the Massachusetts College of Art. This Unholy event for the holy weekend entirely consisted of a presentation of pre-recorded audio and video tape, with the exception of a brief selection when Gen plinked a few notes on a piano along with a tape loop of Aleister Crowley chanting to evoke demons. The videos presented including a COUM Transmission performance from '77 with penisses and clitorises pierced, other assorted bondage and discipline films, Jim Jones, Charles Manson, Roman Polanski, Brion Gyson's Dreammachine in operation, and the final video was a PTV production, "Terminus" which treats the subject of people who have given up hope. The audio inckudes both finished PTV and Throbbing Gristle pieces plus tapes mixed during the performance. These were primarily tapes of various religious and mystical rituals at their peaks put on loops.
This event also involved another sister event which took place the previous Good Friday in Reykjavik, Iceland. It was hoped that there might be a "Psychick" influence between the two, that remains to be seen.
