Overview
Wreckers of Civilisation tells the story of two interconnected groups; the performance art group COUM Transmissions and the music group. Throbbing Gristle. The four key members of these groups were Genesis P-Orridge, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter Christopherson and Chris Carter. COUM shocked art audiences with their public nudity and often masochristic art actions. TG, likewise, shocked music audiences with their sonic terrorism and explicit lyrics. Wreckers of Civilistaion is a first and only book to document the work of both groups, placing it in the context of 70s notions of avantgardism and permissiveness.
