4.5 out of 5 stars

on 2 April 2003
Bought this in HMV in Hong Kong today - didn't even know it existed! Now i find that a whole load of new Psychic Tv albums have been put out by the lovely folk at Voiceprint! Great! Ok, the review. This (well, some of it - maybe?!?!?!?) was originally issued under the title of Live @ The Pyramids in 1990. Its a live recording from 1989 and shows Psychic TV in their 'acid rock' phase. Its not bad - a lot of their live albums were pretty poor and you really didn't need to own them all. However, this show was well recorded, featured some interesting material and you get a full 73 minutes. The first three tracks went on to form part of 'Towards Thee Infinite Beat' - but here, as they are live, they sound little like the versions from that album. Next up is a longish dancey-improv piece, which is quite interesting. Then you get a track which originally appeared on the 'Force The Hand of Chance' album, but in a much more mutated form. After that you get 2 more improv tracks, the last of which is a 25+ minute jam, which incorporates the pan pipes of Jejouka - its pretty damn good. Overall, although this cd has its flaws, its well worth hearing. At present there are 9 new Psychic TV albums out via Voiceprint, with a promise of 30 altogether! I will definitely be buying more!!!!!

Live in East Village is the third in a series of limited edition Psychic TV live albums, sensational features highlights of 2 consecutive nights at the Pyramid Club, New York and is officially endorsed by the band with detailed sleeve notes from Genesis P Orridge and information about Psychic TV's philosophy. It comes as a limited edition of 1000 copies (individually numbered).
Self-confessed cultural terrorist Genesis P Orridge formed psychic TV after the demise of his previous band Throbbing Gristle. Never afraid of confrontation and unorthodox lifestyles, Throbbing Gristle's legacy has been recently compiled on an acclaimed 24 CD box set released by Mute records.
