Mouth Of The Night is a soundtrack album composed, produced, and recorded by the band Psychic TV as commissioned by Micha Bergese of MANTIS Dance Group to complement one of its ballets. It was recorded over four days in January 1985 at Paradise Studios in Chiswick, London.

The album was re-released as Mouth Of The Knight credited to Psychic TV and Genesis P-Orridge as disc "D" of the Splinter Test six-CD box set on Caroline Records, SYARD005 (1994). It was also released as a so-called "bootleg" CD on Vault Records, VAULT 23. However the Vault CD is not actually a bootleg. The tapes for Mouth of the Night were 'sold outright' to one Trevor Jones in 1991 by Genesis himself along with the master for the Swedish show album and a TG reel titled Grief. However, the Vault CD contains three further uncredited tracks, clearly from the same recording session as the Mouth of the Night soundtrack, but to this day remain unknown. It also features a re-edited and re-pitched version of "Unclean."
