Watch: Trailer For 'The Ballad Of Genesis And Lady Jaye' The Fascinating True Story Of Psychic TV Founder Genesis P-Orridge | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE
The documentary follows Genesis P-Orridge, Throbbing Gristle member and Psychic TV founder whose relationship to his partner Lady Jaye goes in directions that pushes more boundaries than anything he created musically. Starting in 2000, he began a number of sex change operations in order to more closely resemble Jaye, but that's not all. The act itself became a giant performance piece of sorts called "Creating the Pandrogyne" in which Geneis and Jaye gave up their own identities to create what they called a third identity. It's the kind of gender theory stuff we remember reading circa university/college but made very, very real.
This one has been doing the festival circuit for the past year but will land in an arthouse near you on March 8, 2012, and it's worth checking out. It's a quirky, odd little doc that will definitely be unlike anything else you'll see.
Tom Jones Becomes Jack White’s Latest Collaborator
MUST HAVE!!!!!!!Tom Jones has become the latest artist with whom Jack White has worked in his recent string of unusual collaborations. The veteran Welsh crooner, whose hits include “It’s Not Unusual” and “Delilah,” worked with White on a new version of Jones’s 2002 track, “Jezebel,” and on a cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Evil.”
The special one-off 7-inch single will be released as part of White’s Third Man label’s “Blue Series,” which has pressed similar one-off discs for such unlikely artists as Insane Clown Posse and Stephen Colbert. A release date for the Tom Jones disc has not been announced, but White told Mojo the sessions went extremely well.
