A SUNDAY TIMES, TELEGRAPH, ROUGH TRADE, PITCHFORK AND UNCUT MUSIC BOOK OF THE YEAR
SHORTLISTED FOR THE PENDERYN MUSIC BOOK PRIZE
Musician and artist Cosey Fanni Tutti has continually challenged boundaries and conventions for four decades. As a founding member of the hugely influential avant-garde band Throbbing Gristle, as one half of electronic pioneers Chris and Cosey, and as an artist channelling her experience in pornographic modelling and striptease, her work on the margins has come to reshape the mainstream. Shocking, wise and life-affirming, Art Sex Music is the fascinating memoir of an inspirational woman.
A remarkable autobiography . . . Inspiring . . . Tutti's clarity and conviction cuts through.
Extraordinary . . . Darkly funny [and] consistently fascinating . . . Forever accustomed to life as an outsider, Tutti has never sought approval, but now it’s here whether she likes it or not.
An essential read . . . Fearless, powerful, humorous, warm and intelligent.
I love Cosey Fanni Tutti. Simple as that.
An extraordinary life.
Tutti’s commitment to individualism precludes any wider political perspective on the industrial culture she helped to instigate, but this fierce adherence to herself . . . has taken her closer to the action than most.
