Recommended: A Chris & Cosey DJ Mix

Today I've found myself listening repeatedly to this DJ mix put together by Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti as part of The Quietus mix series. You may know Chris & Cosey for their extensive discography as a duo, and you may also know them as one half of iconoclastic musical heroes Throbbing Gristle. TG were especially influential to me as a teenage lover of all things musically controversial and I completely wore out copies of their various albums (as well as my tattered edition of the Industrial Culture Handbook of which their interview was a highlight). This exceptional mix betrays Chris & Cosey's unique historical perspective on music recent and past and will be the background soundtrack to many future days of work here at Q-BAM HQ. Enjoy:

On a sad side note, Chris & Cosey's partner in (audio) crime in Throbbing Gristle, Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson, passed away at the end of last year.
