In 1988 and '89, legendary industrial eccentrics and LSD enthusiasts Psychic TV contributed soundtracks to two very different films: a 23-minute "short" called Kondole, and Dead Cat, a very strange, 48-minute "head movie" that featured Derek Jarman and Genesis P Orridge in starring roles. The latter is included here on DVD for the very first time (the original film reels were only rediscovered recently), alongside the full dystopian, industrial ambient soundtrack (CD1). For Psychic TV fans, this is a big deal; the doom-laden paranoid and acid-fired weirdness of the full-length version has never before seen the light of day, only the edited version of "Dead Cat" contained on 1993's Kondole - Ov Dolphins & Wales CD. It's that set, with its bonus "part three" wig-out (here titled Thee Shadow Creatures) which is presented in re-mastered form on disc two.
