A big “Howdy” and secret Mink Ranch handshake go out to Tenderfoot allison anne who brightens our humble winter blog today with this fantastic, postcard-size collage she sent us. allison anne is a Tenderfoot in terms of MinXus-Lynxus, but she is definitely a wise and discerning music fan, especially in the area of musicians and music who have emerged from or been associated with the Eternal Network.

We had an absolutely delightful and informative online conversation at IUOMA-Ning with allison anne about the legendary Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and industrial music (if memory serves and it often doesn’t). This inspired us to rant about Genesis’s dealings with William S. Burroughs, Blaster Al Ackerman, Neoism and other related matters that are the stuff of legend, urban legend and secret knowledge.

Beyond Tales of Beatnik Glory, we are awed that allison anne is such a fine and accomplished artist. We adore the collage, especially the integration of text and image. We find the band of “silence” across the middle section to be a very powerful statement on a gender-political level as well as on an artistic-self-reflective level.

Deepest thanks to allison anne. We look for ward to more exchanges!

Thinking of Genesis P-Orridge, we dug into the archive and found this collage titled “Throbbing Gristle” that appeared in a European zine circa 1980. Genesis P-Orridge is named as the artist on the contents page:
