As Cosey Fanni Tutti releases one of the albums of the year thus far, she sits down with Luke Turner to discuss 13 records that shaped her, from the soundtrack to pre-COUM hippy days in Hull to the present day


The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Electric Ladyland
Another sex on legs! He was the first person I ever saw who used his guitar like his cock. I loved that he had total respect for the guitar, but total disrespect for what people could expect it to sound like, which is where I come from really. It's an instrument, and an extension of self, and it's definitely an extension of him. You put 'Voodoo Child' on and it's like 'whatttt?', because I'm someone who hates guitar solos, but put Hendrix on and I'm in heaven, because it's not like a solo, it's somebody, through a guitar. He was this amazing person who could bleed through his guitar, and I think he did. Other people don't, they just play it.
