    Not sure what you mean about " what was the thought behind the structure of presenting the recording in a nonlinear format?"

    Howard Thompson from ALMO Sounds was not as stupid as he looked apparently and rejected this material. He signed GARBAGE and had considerable success with them.

    These demo recordings cost approximately $10,000. I told Gen I wouldn't do it unless I got $1,000. for the weeks work. I had expenses. My sampler blew up and I had to send it to the manufacturer when Gen called me begging me to do this. Gen's lawyer, Barry Simons, had to juggle with the studio owners to get me $1,000. because they thought I was only worth $500. for the weeks work. I told Gen he should get $1,000. too as well as Matthew Best. I don't know if Matthew charged him anything because he is a much nicer guy than I am... ; )
    As it turned out my sampler took weeks to get repaired. Barry picked me up at the San Francisco airport and we drove directly to the main office of E-MU systems, the manufacturer of the sampler to pick it up. Was about an hour drive outside of SF. Needless to say I didn't have any chance to do any more pre-production on the music, but we had played the song quite a bit previously on our tour of the USA in 1990 and it seemed to work live.

    This song is the only time I got to record with my modified Cry Baby wah-wah which I replaced with the kit from Roger Mayer. So much better than the stock Cry Baby which used to hurt my ears.
    PS. For those who don't know, Roger Mayer was the electronics whizz who worked with Jimi Hendrix. http://www.roger-mayer.co.uk/
    These demos were also the only time I got to use my guitar with the new pickups which I had rewound by Skip Goes in St. Louis who rewound pickups for Stevie Ray Vaughn also...

    the depressing aura of that junkie Kobain hung over that studio like a miserable cloud. Decent room, too bad the mixer was so broken down that I couldn't do final mixes, but we were there only to do Demo rough mixes not deliver final product.

    This was the studio where Kurt Cobain produced the Melvins. The engineers would point to the couches and tell us that that was where Kurt would nod off from doing smack. Wow !!! I was so impressed...NOT !!!

    FYI, we lived in the apartments in the recording studio. Matthew and his girlfriend Colleen had a room, I had a room and Gen had a room. Gen was going through his divorce and was constantly crying at night trying to get Colleen to console him. A complete basket case. He was driving her crazy and was freaking her out and the 3 of us, Matthew, Colleen and I could do nothing to help except try to be professional and get the work done. Gen was a complete mess. A precursor to when he fell apart when Jackie dramatically died in his arms. Good rehearsal for the PANDA-drogynous drama queen.

    then Marie Losier tried to resurrect the song and used it in the original trailer for her film. I demanded that she remove it. For all I know it may still be in the film, although she eventually took it out of future trailers. If it is in the film I will HUNT P-ORRIDGE DOWN LIKE THE FUCKING WEASEL HE IS AND KICK HIS FUCKING ASS !!! ; )

    Our sound engineer Richard Schiessl was my inspiration for the title of this song. We were doing our usual December gig in London one year. Simon Norris had designed a special T-shirt with artwork on it like the Live in NYC picture disc. Richard really liked the design and was going on about how he liked it and it looked like a Snowflake. Must have been December of 1989 @ Subterania.

    THIS IS ONLY A ROUGH MIX. Where did you get a copy of this ??? In the early 1990s, Vice-President of Elektra Records, Howard Thompson took an interest in signing Psychic TV. He explained that he was going to take a one year sabbatical from the music industry and he had been asked to run a major independent record label and he wanted to sign Psychic TV to that label. The label was in fact, Herb Alpert's and Jerry Moss's new imprint Almo Sounds, after the sale of A & M Records. Studio time was booked and Genesis P-Orridge, Fred Giannelli and Matthew Best went in to Brilliant Studios in San Francisco to record demos. Four tracks were recorded and rough mixes delivered and were rejected by Almo Sounds. The songs were entitled: "Snowflake", "Intoxication", "E-Lusive" and "Avatar".
