Quietus Mix 008: Chris & Cosey
The Quietus , January 20th, 2011 08:36

2011 looks to be a very special year for Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti. We're therefore chuffed they've compiled the eighth episode in our mix series

If we were running a chart of all the artists featured on the Quietus mix series, out ahead of the pack in terms of frequency of inclusion would be Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti. The past few months have seen not only Optimo's vinyl reissue of Carter's brilliant The Space Between, but also four Chris & Cosey LPS originally released in the early 80s, Heartbeat, Trance, Songs Of Love & Lust and Exotika. February 4th will see their first performance in years at Richard D Clouston's Cosey Club at the ICA, supported by Factory Floor. There, they promise "classic C&C tracks from their substantial back catalogue, reworked and accompanied by mash-ups of new and old C&C video projections." It's surely set to be just one more step on their music reaching a far wider, contemporary audience. We're therefore honoured that Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti have compiled Number Eight in the Quietus mix series. As well as their own music and remixes, including Liars, Factory Floor and Throbbing Gristle reworkings, Chris & Cosey guide us through electronica and beyond, from Karl Bartos to Sasha Grey's aTelecine; Alva Noto & Blixa Bargeld's ANbb, Colder, Plastikman and more.
