Art Sex Music


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.

    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. ...

    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...

    She certainly led an interesting life, worth finding out about. But! The book just wasn't great. Too long, too much name dropping, too many mundane details. The editor should have cut this in half by ...
