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.

    I always thought Throbbing Gristle was the product of disturbed minds, and this book gives a clear, if somewhat prosaic, account of their and COUM's dubious art activities. The commitment to self-expr...

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

    It's good to read Cosey's side of the story.The beginning of the book is very interesting, but in the second half some parts can be repetitive... Still, a must read for everybody interested in COUM/TG...
