Other Like Me tells the story of Coum Transmissions and Throbbing Gristle. Ground breaking artists whose work in performance art, mail art, fine art, and the creation of a new genre of post-punk music (industrial music) infamously earned them the sobriquet the Wreckers of Civilization.
In-depth interviews with those involved, including Cosey Fanni Tutti (also seen in Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and Legendary Tapes, screening at this year’s Revelation) and Genesis P-Orridge (The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jay seen at Revelation 2012), and archive footage offers a fascinating insight into some of the most important underground art of the last decades of the twentieth century.
For anyone interested in experimental art and music Other Like Me is essential viewing.
Screens with the short film Reveries.
