Art Sex Music by Cosey Fanni Tutti
Faber are proud to announce the publication of Art Sex Music
by Cosey Fanni Tutti for 6th April 2017.
Art Sex Music is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades.
It is the account of an artist who, as part of COUM Transmissions, represented Britain at the IXth Biennale de Paris, whose Prostitution show at the ICA in 1976 caused the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn to declare her, COUM and Throbbing Gristle ‘Wreckers of Civilisation’… shortly before he was arrested for indecent exposure, and whose work continues to be held at the vanguard of contemporary art, some of which resides as part of the Tate permanent collection.
And it is the story of her work as a pornographic model and striptease artiste which challenged assumptions about morality, pornography and art.
Art Sex Music is the wise, shocking and elegant autobiography of Cosey Fanni Tutti.

CHRIS & COSEY DISCUSS USING EVENTIDE EFFECTS IN THROBBING GRISTLE
Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti discuss how Throbbing Gristle used the legendary Eventide H910 Harmonizer in the studio. The hardware unit has recently been relaunched as a ‘plug-in’ for digital audio workstations. More details here.
Back in 2011 Industrial Records reissued five Throbbing Gristle albums (A Second Annual Report, DOA The Third & Final Report, Heathen Earth, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, and Throbbing Gristle’s Greatest Hits) as deluxe vinyl editions. Back by popular demand, those re-mastered albums are being re-pressed.
Industrial will also bring out another pressing of X-TG’s Desertshore / The Final Report, which was Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti’s 2012 tribute to their departed TG comrade Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson.
