Lost Bliss(Remixed) Originally Released On The Album “Megatropolis” In 2000.
‘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.

The hugely popular Exotika album - originally released in 1987 by Play It Again Sam - includes such Chris & Cosey classics as the crowd-pleasing 'BeatBeatBeat', the haunting ballad 'Dr. John (Sleeping Stephen)' and the original version of the seminal title track 'Exotika', which was adopted as an electronica anthem, most notably on the GOA scene and in the US West and East Coast gay clubs of the 1980s'.
"Chris & Cosey beat most of 87's mainstream dance-floor contenders on their own territory of sheer pleasure, urged joy. 'BeatBeatBeat' is extreme, a revelation." By Ian Gittins - Melody Maker 1987
"Chris & Cosey have made a great dance record, but it's their kind of dancing. No junk here. They're crazy enough to be sincere about their musical Pleasureland and they want to share their discovery. Come and feel the sound as though your life depends on it: if it were up to them, it would depend on it." From Rockpool 1987.
Tracklisting: Side One: 1. Confession 2. Arcade 3. Exotika
Side Two: 4. Vengeance 5. Dancing On Your Grave 6. Beatbeatbeat 7. Dr. John (Sleeping Stephen)
