Excellent review/« coup de cœur » about Camouflage book by Christophe Bourseiller on French TV program Ça balance à Paris (Paris Première channel).
Timeless is extremely pleased to present something truly unique! You
might have seen Gen mention preparing the publication of h/er notebooks
in the recent NY Times article. This is it: culled from h/er private mostly unpublished archives, the
1st volume called “Archives and Documents” presents 152 full colour
pages of crucial early art terrorism like h/er little seen Nekrophile
zine, reproduced here in full. Nekrophile magazine was conceived in 1968
by GPO as a sole and only issue. The collages, drawings, poems and
texts gathered in it deal with the themes that will prevail in the
iconography of Industrial Music. This volume also displays ultra rare TG and PTV documents commented by
GPO and that are not the same old exponents that a Google image search
will yield.(no ticket stubs or tape cover designs here). Edited by Nicolas Ballet with personal explanations and insights added
by GPO, this volume is an essential visual document of Gen’s
contributions to art and culture from the mid 1960s onwards with a
strong emphasis on that most controversial and rewarding period of the
late 70s and early 80s. The second book (Prophecies & Messages) focuses on even more
personal and magickal aspects that are the very heart of GPO’s life and
art, it contains the reproduction of two magical and richly illustrated
scrapbooks selected by Nicolas Ballet. Unparalleled documents of a virtual spiritual journey into he/r occult
practices, essential for students of contemporary esotericism. These books are an indispensible gift for the industrial music fan, the
connoisseur of 20th and 21st century art and the novice and experts of
the byways of the occult, prepared with the full collaboration of and
overseen by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, it is futile to stress that this
no less than a visual companion piece to the Psychick Bible.

CAMOUFLAGE opening took place at Atelier Eiffel in Paris on January 26.
It consisted in a
presentation of the book as a talk involving Laurence Dupré, Loulou
Picasso (from Bazooka group), Eric de Chassey (director of the National
Institute of Art History and curator of the Europunk exhibition)
and Nicolas Ballet. This was followed by a signing cession and a
cocktail. Many people, friend, artists were present.
When Throbbing Gristle donned their infamous camouflage uniforms in
1980 it became a pivotal statement for industrial and post-industrial
Few of the countless imitators realised that those
particular uniforms were custom-made and designed by their close ally
Laurence Dupré (aka Lawrence Dupré). In true TG fashion expectations
were confounded and a deeper level of importance literally hidden away
from easy deciphering.
Timeless feels honoured to present a first extensive
overview of Laurence Dupré’s early career raging from her DiY fashion
zines of the late 70s/early 80s dealing with camouflage patterns and
appliances, her collages for Sordide Sentimental, her meeting with
Genesis P-Orridge in Hackney to her design worky not only for the TG
uniforms, but also other aspects of the latter day TG image.
Showcasing for the first time her unique trademark designs envisioned
with her brother Loulou Picasso of the Bazooka group. Richly illustrated
in colour, the 188 page book was designed by Loulou Picasso and
contains insightful essays and contributions from Jean Pierre Turmel
(Sordide Sentimental), Genesis P-Orridge, Jon Savage, Neville Brody and
This book is the culmination of three years work and covers the Occult
practices in Thailand, from amulets to rituals to blessings. What marks
this system is its openness as anyone can begin a life of magic and
train themselves using a good amulet. The Thai Occult book aims to help
those interested in this deep and ancient art as a practitioner or to
use the knowledge to refresh their own magical practices, all through the words of the Ajarns themselves.
300+ top quality photos and comes in two editions.
THE SILVER EDITION - This is the standard edition of the book at 69
euros plus P+P and everyone who orders a copy before the release date of
September 3rd shall receive a free, signed bookmark.
EDITION is something more special. It is the same book with gold script
on the cover, but this one contains a numbered and signed bookmark and a
metal Yant from Ajarn Apichai. The Yant is the Lanna Inn Khoo, and it
was drawn on a lady’s private parts, which is part of its Wicha. This
Yant has a kata, for which I can provide a recording, and it is placed
under the mattress to attract partners to your bed for sex, and through
that action, the Yant is made stronger.
155 copies available and 119 euros plus P+P.
It is the hope of the author that this book will become a benchmark for
the understanding of the ancient Occult practices of Thailand. After
this new work, information can then be added to The Thai Occult books
Facebook page as it arises and any questions can be answered there. If
it is a good question, an Ajarn from the book will be asked for their

“The first advertisement made for the infamous London
fashion store, a large format poster designed by Peter Christopherson.
Boy was formed in 1976 on King’s Road by John Krivine and Steph Raynor.
Christopherson at that time was both a member of Throbbing Gristle, and
of the design company Hipgnosis, who had been responsible for some of
the most recognizable album covers of the era, including Pink Floyd’s
Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Krivine invited
Christopherson to create the initial design for the store after seeing
COUM’s poster designs for the Citizen’s Theatre in Glasgow.
Christopherson was responsible for the initial concept and
design of the store, including the typography, and also the window
displays, which showed an unconscious or dead young man. Genesis
P-Orridge described them to Jon Savage as follows: “The idea was that a
boy had climbed in to steal stuff, accidentally knocked over an electric
fire and set the place on fire and burned to death. And these were the
leftovers of the boy. So there was a Doc Marten boot with bits of flesh
and there was a bit of his jeans and buttock and a finger with a ring
and some mouldy hand. And they were in little forensic dishes in these
glass boxes like you would find at the Black Museum. So this was just a
parody of a mixture of forensic evidence and vandalism.” – [P-Orridge,
quoted in Ford 7.4-7.5]
The window display was provocative enough that the windows
were soon vandalized, a problem that would dog the early days of the
shop. Boy London would go on to become on the most influential and
controversial fashion lines of the 80’s. Christopherson would go on to
form Coil with John Balance. A rare example of the early work of the
most innovative and provocative designer of the period, or of any
