An Album a day, #3: Psychic TV, "Mouth of the Night," 1985
In between Brian Jones homages, Brian Wilson impersonations, and industrial instrumentals, Genesis P-Orridge & co. found the time to make this album of electronic music to accompany a modern dance piece. A very approximate description would be that it fits... somewhere between radical exotica, minimalism, and 60s tape loop experiments. A few years later, when he discovered acid house and trance, Mr. P-Orridge remixed portions of it over dance beats, but the original is much better.
