With Cosey Fanni Tutti
Artist, musician and filmmaker Cosey Fanni Tutti on her new solo album and how her work has changed since writing her memoir. Plus, art rock from Sun City Girls and Swiss hip-hop.
Cosey Fanni Tutti came into prominence in the 1970s with the controversial art collective COUM Transmissions and industrial rock band Throbbing Gristle. Her work examined the darker, festishised and sexual side of human nature and her new solo album reflects back on those days with manipulated recordings of found sounds, electronics and her beloved cornet. Stuart talks to Cosey about her first solo album in 36 years and how her work has changed since writing her memoir Art, Sex, Music.
Also in the show; Stuart plays several tracks from Sun City Girls’ late 80s lo-fi art rock album Torch Of The Mystics, plus two new tracks from Switzerland. Firstly a Freak Zone kosmische-pop favourite Klaus Johann Grobe and then Liricas Analas - a hip hop group who rap in Romansch, Europe’s most minority language spoken in a small canton in Switzerland.
