We’ve noted before that Kristie Sue Costa, the sole remaining spokes-thingy for the Hoaxtead mob, has a nasty habit of drawing unwarranted conclusions from cherry-picked evidence. Her idea of “in-depth investigation” generally consists of skimming through hastily Googled material, scooping out the bits that confirm her existing biases (of which she has many), and then throwing together “exposés” for her drooling cabal of mentally deficient followers.
Let us just say that she is not gifted in the art of deduction, and her inferences are generally so off-target that we might think them hilarious…if they weren’t also damaging to real people.
Take, for example, this recent discussion from her Facebook page:
First, can we just point out that Aangirfan (spelt correctly, you’re welcome) is not what anyone could call a “credible source”? Now granted, in this instance they are merely quoting from a review online, but if that’s where Kristie Sue chose to start her “investigation” into the music recorded at Christ Church Hampstead, she’s poisoned the well from the outset.
In typical sheep-like troofer fashion, her followers pick up the thread, vying to see who can be nastiest:Whoa, we think we detected an actual fact in amongst all the drivel: “Castration Movie”, part of a series of films by “THEE TEMPLE OV PSYCHICK YOUTH” (TOPY) that goes under the heading “FIRST TRANSMISSION”, is actually a very disturbing bit of film, though it is not, as many claim, a “snuff film”. Nor is it really about castration—it’s about penis removal. A critic on IMDb notes that “it basically shows some ‘doctor’ who is experimenting on seemingly willing young adults (I hope for legalities sake that they’re adults…) by attaching some weird electrodes to them. This whole thing culminates with the last boy – where the doctor removes his penis on film, sews it up, and then attaches electrodes to it”.
Yes, it’s weird. It might also be illegal, if as the reviewer suggests the “patient” is below the age of legal consent. Whether the “surgery” is what it appears to be and not simulated, it’s certainly not something many people would enjoy watching. Overall, “FIRST TRANSMISSION” is clearly an attempt to shock, and by all accounts it succeeds.
Does it have anything to do with an imaginary cult based in Christ Church? Not even a little bit. So why mention it?
Oh, you know. Guilt by illogical inference and all that. The usual.
Oh, now Kristie Sue is showing off her astonishing knowledge of “chaos magic”:
Readers might be interested to know that Genesis P-Orridge was not only involved with Psychic TV and the industrial band Throbbing Gristle, but s/he was the founder of the aforementioned “Temple ov Psychic Youth” (whose idiosyncratic spellings seem to have been adopted by Kristie Sue’s mate and fellow Hoaxtead mobster Tina Kachina, just by the bye).
In 1992, P-Orridge and family were in Kathmandu, Nepal, when they received a telegram informing them that their home had been raided by police, investigating allegations that P-Orridge was the leader of a Satanic cult. P-Orridge was alleged to have been chaining women in the basement of his/her basement home in Brighton, impregnating them, aborting the foetuses, and forcing them to eat them. This despite the fact that the Brighton house didn’t actually have a basement, but never let facts stand in the way of a good witch-hunt. P-Orridge was cleared of all charges, but left for the United States, dissolving the TOPY in the process. It had been an experimental attempt, and P-Orridge believed it had had its day.
All of the aforementioned, however, is merely the lead-up to Kristie Sue’s brilliant punch-line:
“So we have chaos magicians recording in Hampstead Christ Church (sic) and we have chaos magicians defending Hoaxtead..what are the odds???”
Well, that might be a pretty amazing coincidence, if it were true.
But keep in mind that Kristie Sue is basing the second part of this statement on her own erroneous conclusions which she has based partially on information fed to her by habitual truth-twister Nathaniel Harris, and partially on her own brilliant deduction that there is only one person on the entire internet using the name of Greek deities as an online avatar, thus proving that Hoaxtead Research’s occasional commenter Athena Pallas is really Nikky Wyrd, which conclusively proves that this blog is really run by Julian Vayne, Nathaniel Harris’ arch-nemesis whom he sees round every corner.
Did you follow all that? We know, neither did we.
So basically: because some music was recorded in Christ Church Hampstead in 1983 by an experimental avant-garde musical group with a bent toward the shocking (and strange spelling), and because Kristie Sue can’t reason her way out of a wet paper bag in a rainstorm, we may now consider the case proven: Abe Christie and Ella Draper’s “cult” is actually a thing, and we can all go home now.
