Item Description
Beginning in 1982, the conceptual audiovisual troupe labeled Psychic TV set out on a multimedia journey filled with subversion,
liberation and rebellion. While the members' previous works took root in the counterculture zeitgeist of late '70s UK punk and
conceptual art, it was no longer a question of how to rebel against authority, but rather how to carefully subvert it through collective
infiltration. Parallel to Psychic TV, its members formed the anti-cult faction Thee Temple of Psychick Youth, further propagating the
Psychic TV message and vision. While the ensuing years saw Psychic TV's major label infection and record breaking live album release
binge, it wasn't until 1988 that the band started to ready itself for a chart-friendly pop endeavor in the form of "Allegory & Self". This
would be the band's most notable and successful endeavor but tragically, it would be the final songwriting collaboration between POrridge
and Fergusson. The record's opening track "Godstar," a song gushing obsessive praise upon the fallen Rolling Stones member
Brian Jones, would give the album its most notable identity. "Godstar's" melodic hooks and haunting, Phil Spector-era lyrical chant
gives into to all the hallmarks of a chart-topping hit. All in all "Allegory and Self" was a perfect storm of catchy pop melody along with
subversive counter-culture reference and occult leanings, packaged in a perfect bundle of underground hits and would stand alone as
the band's signature apex from the original '80s line-up.
