Psychic TV to reissue two albums on Sacred Bones and Dais Records, inadvertently ruining some of your underground cred
In the 21st century, PSYCHIC TV is finally "on-demand."

Listen: I know how you like all your favorite cult-status, psych-pop audiovisual performance troupes to STAY “cult-status” so that no one else can appreciate their bizarre, visceral, and provocative acid-punk experiments the way YOU DO and all, but…well, please try to be happy with this morning’s monumental announcement that Psychic TV’s legendary 1986 and 1988 albums — Pagan Day and Allegory & Self, respectively — are about to be reissued on vinyl and CD for the first time since their initial pressings. This is a GOOD THING!

But I guess if you’re looking for someone to blame for the sudden democratization of such an amazing cache of heretofore heavily guarded art-rock experimentation, the finger points squarely to Sacred Bones and Dais Records, whom have joined-forces to introduce these two freaky-deaky milestones in the long, juicy “underground” careers of Genesis P-Orridge and Alex Fergusson. Both PTV records will be available to a wider, under-initiated, and quite possibly less-cool-than-you public on LP/CD and digital iterations on July 14 (just in time for Bastille Day!).

And in addition to nice, new, 21st-century remastering jobs and the convenient listening format dissemination, the labels have also dug-up a special “Archival 1985 interview ” with P-Orridge (combo’ed with the official “Goldstar” video), which you (or, yeah, sorry to say: ANYONE, REALLY) can totally watch down below any old time you want.

Finally, everyone and their Snapchatting kid sister can also pre-order Pagan Day on CD/LP right here (and digitally right here), AND THEN they can order Allegory & Self on CD/LP right here (and digitally right here), all with the simple push of a pointer finger. It really couldn’t be easier.

Sigh. I know this is a serious blow to your ego as the “ultimate PTV fan.” But here, this’ll help you forget all about it:
