Home Aged & The 18 Month Hope

Label: Dais Records

Format: Vinyl LP

Out of stock

The most recent installment of the rare & unheard archival recordings from the  transgressive 70′s performance art group COUM Transmissions.  Founded in late 1969 by Genesis P-Orridge, COUM Transmissions’s provocative performances mixed with visual art solidified the group as one of the most forward thinking breakthroughs within the 70′s conceptual art scene. Between 1969 and 1976, with a rotating membership including John Shapiro, Cosey Fanni Tutti, and Spydeee Gasmantell, COUM Transmissions completed various tasks related to the effective transmission of coum, including being generally confrontational, making some pretty cool music, and opening for Hawkwind. In 1976, having deemed the amount of coum transmitted adequate, P-Orridge formed Throbbing Gristle alongside fellow members of COUM Transmissions. Only in the past couple years has COUM’s recorded works seen the light of day. This release collects various selections spanning the years 1971 through 1975, including a rare live performance opening for Hawkwind, lost radio interview, obtuse poetry readings by early member Fizzey Peat, piano & violin compositions by Genesis P-Orridge and insightful field recordings.
