“It’s not about gender,” P-Orridge explains. “Some feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body, others like a woman trapped in a man’s body. The pandrogyne says, I just feel trapped in a body. The body is simply the suitcase that carries us around. Pandrogyny is all about the mind, consciousness.”
Less surprisingly, for someone who has worn his private preoccupations so publicly, P-Orridge regards pandrogny as a crusade. “It’s inevitable if we’re going to evolve as a species,” he says. “Our perception of the world is binary: right/wrong, black/white, male/female. We live in this miraculous technological environment, and yet our human behaviour is still governed by basic impulses from prehistoric times.” Replication through science, P-Orridge insists, would help change human behaviour completely.
The new Psychic TV album is due out in January of 07, from the Olympia based record label, Kill Rock Stars.
