Genesis P-Orridge & The Hafler Trio - Dream Less Suite 2xLP
Release Date: March 31st, 2023
Genesis P-Orridge and The Hafler Trio: do these two legends still need any introduction? Genesis P-Orridge was the founding person of COUM Transmissions in 1969, Throbbing Gristle in 1975, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth and Psychic TV in 1981. Andrew McKenzie started The Hafler Trio (together with Cabaret Voltaire's Chris Watson) in 1982 and since then released all his work under this moniker and collaborated with William S. Burroughs, Autechre, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Nurse With Wound, and Jónsi from Sigur Rós, to name a few. And he constructed the first kit Dreamachine in 1989 together with Brion Gysin. The impact and influence of these pioneers of the industrial underground, visionary thinkers and open minds, anti-heroes of the misfits and the outcasts is hard to underestimate.
On Dream Less Suite, the first new album by The Hafler Trio since 2016, Andrew McKenzie unearths, resurrects and completed recordings he made through the years with Genesis P-Orridge. This double-LP features soundtracks to unfinished films, live performances and the real versions of tracks you know and love, released for the very first time and mastered from the original reel-to-reel tapes. Expect the unexpected and be prepared for the unprepared.
