Available for Pre-order, released on the 17th of February 2015.
‘CARTER TUTTI PLAY CHRIS & COSEY’ will be available on CD and double Vinyl and features eight brand new reinterpretations and re-workings of classic Chris & Cosey songs from the 1980s and 1990s. The idea for the album originated from their recent much requested, live performances of ‘CARTER TUTTI PLAYS CHRIS & COSEY’ which led to an unprecedented series of shows in the U.K., Europe, Scandinavia and North America from 2011 to 2014. These dates in turn instigated so many requests for recordings of the live set that they were inspired late last year to re-record this collection of reworked classic versions in their own Norfolk studio.
Each format will feature an exclusive remixed track - Compact Disc copies feature ‘Vengeance’ (Exclusive Remix), the Digital Download album version comes with ‘Synaesthesia’ (Exclusive Remix) and the Vinyl edition includes all five tracks from their 2014 U.S. limited tour merchandise CD.
There is also a video to promote the album based on a new Carter Tutti edit of the C&C track ‘Sin (2015)', directed by Gavin Toomey from footage he has been shooting and archiving for a forthcoming Chris & Cosey biographical documentary.

To coincide with the release, Chris & Cosey have announced a very special 'final' Valentines weekend live date by returning to the iconic Heaven Nightclub in London on Sunday the 15th of February 2015.
The show will be the last performance of the ‘Carter Tutti Plays Chris & Cosey’ set for the foreseeable future; the founding members of Throbbing Gristle plan to predominately refocus on working in their studio for next couple of years. The duo will then go back into the studio to finish recording a brand new CARTER TUTTI VOID album to be released later in 2015.
Support artists to complete this event come from fast rising cult Japanese all female trio Nisennenmondai (who last year played two sold out London headline club shows of their own at Corsica Studios and Birthdays) and the Quietus Magazine DJ's.

Dirty Water Records presents “Dial M For Muck”, the latest release from Muck & The Mires. Boston’s International ambassadors of garage rock’n’roll have once again teamed up with JIM DIAMOND (White Stripes) and KIM FOWLEY for an explosive 12-song scorcher of an album. FOWLEY, best known as the genius behind the legendary all-female rock band The Runaways, describes the band as a cross between the 1964 BEATLES and the 1977 RAMONES. On “DIAL M...”, Muck and the Mires expand these influences to include hints of ’60s BUBBLEGUM, ’70s POWER-POP and even A LITTLE BIT O’ SOUL! Muck and the Mires have built a worldwide following through relentless touring, radio and satellite airplay and a string of recordings considered by many to be cult classics. Their British Invasion-style songs are all two minutes long and all potential hits; their live show is a high energy blast of fast-paced, post-punk, gritty garage rock and roll.
Formed in 2000, Muck And The Mires are the first group to ever have a “Best Of” collection released before ever playing a note together; (All Mucked Up -The Best of Muck and the Mires). In reality, these raw recordings were home demos created by Muck (Evan Shore formerly of The Queers and The Voodoo Dolls) issued on CD in Canada on Amp Records and subsequently on vinyl by SOUNDFLAT RECORDS of Germany.
Following the immediate success of this album, Muck assembled the real-life Muck and the Mires whose current line-up features original drummer JESSIE BEST, long-time bassist John Quincy Mire, and the recent return of founding lead guitarist Pedro Mire. Some career highlights include: Featured on MTV as the winners of LITTLE STEVEN VAN ZANDT’S (E-Street band/Underground Garage) national battle of the garage bands contest.
Toured Europe and quickly built a large following both home and abroad thanks to strong airplay and worldwide live appearances with NY Dolls, Dictators, MC5, Dick Dale, Kaiser Chiefs, Pete Best, Ray Davies, Supersuckers and many more. “Caught In A Lie” appeared in the HISTORY CHANNEL’S film “Vietnam in HD” and is featured on the album “1-2-3-4” released jointly on DIONYSUS RECORDS (Burbank, California) and Soundflat Records (Germany). “1-2-3-4” received a 4-star rating from England’s prestigious Uncut Magazine, prompting their first UK tour. In Liverpool, they headlined the famous Cavern Club and caught the attention of EX-BEATLES MANAGER Allan Williams.
It should be noted that, despite their offer to employee him, “The man who gave away the Beatles” also turned down Muck and the Mires. Kim Fowley produced the groups 2009 release “Hypnotic”, their first full-length for London’s DIRTY WATER RECORDS, where the group has set up shop ever since. 2011’s “A Cellarful of Muck” proved to be the group’s biggest album to date, even scoring record of the month on Spanish National Radio.

In early 2003, a young writer/director contacted Explosions In The Sky requesting permission to use one of their songs in his second film, All the Real Girls. The filmmaker was Texas native David Gordon Green, and their music was a perfect companion to the elegiac score from fellow Texas composer, David Wingo. That would be the first-ever film license for Explosions In The Sky.
Fast-forward a decade: the band's music has become an integral part of countless film and television programs (most notably Friday Night Lights and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly); Green is an internationally renowned, impressively eclectic filmmaker (Pineapple Express, Snow Angels); and Wingo is a highly acclaimed film composer (Mud, Take Shelter) and leader of acclaimed indie-rock group, Ola Podrida. They've all become very close friends, and that tight-knit friendship spawned Green's stirring new film, Prince Avalanche. While watching the Super Bowl together, EITS drummer Chris Hrasky casually suggested that Green use the scorched landscape of Bastrop State Park in Bastrop, TX as the backdrop for a film.
Green took the suggestion and ran with it, remaking the Icelandic indie comedy Either Way into an understated dramatic comedy starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. In keeping with the low-key, under-the-Hollywood-radar nature of the film, Green tapped Explosions In The Sky and David Wingo to score the film. In the spirit of the filmmaking process, the soundtrack to Prince Avalanche is a casual affair, an earnest collaboration amongst friends recorded entirely in the living rooms of its composers.
Much like the film, the soundtrack stitches dozens of tiny moments of heartfelt brilliance into an emotionally resonant whole far more expansive than its intimate roots might imply. Explosions In The Sky excel at making even the most mundane moments in everyday life seem downright revelatory. David Wingo and David Gordon Green have made careers out of pulling off similar feats in film. It was only a matter of time before these guys all collaborated, and Prince Avalanche delivers on the inspired expectations of such a union.

Super deluxe In the four years since the release of Explosions In The Sky's previous album, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, they've amassed a steady stream of unlikely achievements for a band most known for stirring instrumentals that often push the 10 minute mark.
They toured with The Flaming Lips, headlined a sold-out Central Park concert, performed on the legendary Austin City Limits television program, and curated the world-renowned ATP Festival – all with the humble resolve of a band who still hauls all of their own gear on and off the stage every night. And let's not forget their indelible impact on the cultural landscape of film and television since their breakthrough score for Friday Night Lights marked an aesthetic shift towards evocative, real-life grittiness in mainstream cinema.
On their fifth album, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, the band take some of their greatest creative leaps yet, experimenting with layers of haunting, unplaceable sounds, euphoric vocals, classical guitar, body percussion, Japanese singing bowls and more. With solitary focus and collaborative vision, each instrument clearly exudes the spirit and inspiration of its player, squeezing more expression and lyricism out of guitars and drums than most singers could ever conjure with their voices.
Take Care, Take Care, Take Care is Explosions In The Sky's most texturally diverse and emotionally dynamic album yet, and certainly their most masterfully crafted. It emanates a subtle humanity and disarming comfort that marries youthful idealism with intangible magic. It is perhaps the most emotionally arresting album by a band responsible for some of the most emotionally arresting music of the past decade.
