Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (born Neil Andrew Megson, 22 February 1950 – 14 March 2020) was an English singer-songwriter, musician, writer, and artist. P-Orridge's early confrontational performance work in COUM Transmissions in the late 1960s and early 1970s along with the industrial band Throbbing Gristle, which dealt with subjects such as prostitution, pornography, serial killers, occultism, and P-Orridge's own exploration of gender issues, generated controversy. Later musical work with Psychic TV received wider exposure, including some chart-topping singles. P-Orridge is credited on over 200 releases. P-Orridge has two daughters, Caresse and Genesse, with former wife Paula P-Orridge (born Alaura O'Dell). After marrying Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge in 1993, they began a project to become Breyer P-Orridge, a single pandrogynous entity. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge continued this project after the death of Lady Jaye in 2007.
