Chris & Cosey - Songs of Love & Lust, 1984

Ex-Throbbing Gristle members Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti lead you into their bedroom with their signature brand of relentless, game-changing mechanical techno pop, delivering hit after icy hit. A quick google search will tell you much more about this album and C&C, as both it and they are absolutely legendary.

This album is particularly special to me because Jen and I met at a Carter Tutti (another incarnation of Chris & Cosey) show in Brooklyn that I helped set up. It's also special because the video for "October Love Song" (below) served as my introduction to the world of outsider music. Be forewarned: you might cry.
