Genesis P-Orridge

Real Name:Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

British singer/songwriter, musician, writer, and artist. (use new identity Genesis Breyer P-Orridge for releases credited so.)

Born: 22 February 1950 in Manchester, England, UK.
Died: 14 March 2020 in NYC, New York, USA (aged 70).

Neil Andrew Megson legally changed their name by deed poll to Genesis P-Orridge on 5 January 1971.

With band COUM Transmissions they challenged social boundaries with art; with Throbbing Gristle they played a part in fundamentally redefining music; as the core of Psychic TV they brought this challenge to the mainstream, becoming influential on the dance music sub-culture in the UK.

They courted controversy with pictures of piercings in the RE:Search book "Modern Primitives"; experimental video projects led to an eight-year exile from the UK; and a near-death experience led to engaging in extreme body modification, along with new wife Lady Jaye, to become the 'pandrogyne'.

In 2003, Genesis P-Orridge changed identity to Genesis/Djin Breyer P-Orridge.
