“14 tracks: Chris & Cosey”

Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti are two of the most important and influential figures in the history of electronic music. During the late '70s they were core members of industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle alongside Genesis P-Orridge and the sadly, recently departed Peter Christopherson. When that group first split in 1981 Chris & Cosey signed with Rough Trade for a string of seminal releases defining the darkest underbelly of post-industrial electronics and synth music, drawing on inspirations from literature, pornography and technology. A legendary early adopter of new hardware and electronic instruments, Chris Carter bends synths, drum machines, sequencers and samplers to his will, while Cosey lends her unnervingly eloquent and quintessentially English vocals, ideas and cornet to the formula. This selection is by no means definitive, but contains some all-time classics such as club anthems 'Walking Through Heaven' and 'Exotica', amidst lesser known, but no less essential album tracks from their early works, including a collaboration with Robert Wyatt! If this lot gets your goat, Chris & Cosey's own Conspiracy International label have made much of their archive available digitally for the first time so make sure to dip into it - it's an absolute treasure trove of essential electronic music.

“Great Site”

Nice to see some music available that is not readily available else where. Also what a great idea to make tracks available in a lossless format (flac) keeps the audiophiles happy.
Downloaded a few titles today-no drama-all good. The Flac files even have meta data already attached.
Great Stuff

“Digital air?”

I love music in physical shape: vinyl records is my favourite. Why selling digital air (downloads etc.)?

“Good Timing”

Right as the dark 80s stuff is high in demand, this comes out. Thank you for reminding me of the origins.
