Art Sex Music by Cosey Fanni Tutti

Into the Wild

Read Art Sex Music Online Free - 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.

And it is the story of her work as a pornographic model and striptease artiste which challenged assumptions about morality, erotica and art.

Art Sex Music is the wise, shocking and elegant autobiography of Cosey Fanni Tutti.

I have never been a fan of Throbbing Gristle. My sense of aesthetic is entirely the opposite of this band. First of all, I hate their name. It's funny, but I don't think they met it as being funny. It seems Chris (and Cosey's half) always hated the band's name, and I can understand why. There is...

3.5 stars. Interesting but maybe a little too exhaustive--I would have appreciated more editing.

Cosey's long-awaited autobiography is a delight. Art Sex Music is written in a breezy conversational style that fairly rattles by, and the extraordinary situations described herein make for a story that's frequently funny as hell and also endlessly inspiring.

A long slow settling of scores. I had hoped for a lengthy TG section, but as with most bands it degenerates into animosity and lengthy grudge bearing.

I aspire to one day be as diplomatic and majestic as Cosey. Art Sex Music is a funny, moving and addictive read.

I'd like to be able to give this a higher rating, but just can't. I'm a big fan of Throbbing Gristle and a long-time industrial/noise musician myself, and was fairly knowledgeable about the story of Coum and TG, but I was very curious to read Cosey's own perspective. Huge respect to her as an art...

For all the interesting things in this book it was surprisingly boring. Kind of like reading 40 years of someone's day planners.

Wanted to like this more than I did- a bit dry and list-filled in places. She's lead a fascinating life but it didn't quite translate to the page.

Massively disappointing. With so much that could be written about Cosey's theory, methods, and what have you for her art and music (er, and sex), the book instead wastes page after page whinging about Genesis and other things. Gen may indeed be as toxic a person as Cosey describes, but it makes f...

Below is my personal review. My Co-Blogger at Industrial Anti-Oppression and I had an indepth conversation to review this book that can be found here. In summary, Cosey Fanni Tutti is a spectacular, tough, and talented woman. People may know her from her involvement in COUM, Throbbing Gristle (TG...
