Chris & Cosey - Trust - 1989
For those who don't know who Chris & Cosey are, I highly recommend clicking here. To know the extensive back history of these two people really helps to understand and appreciate their work. I DO say appreciate, as their work with Throbbing Gristle can only be appreciated, as I really think it sounds pretty bad. But, obviously someone liked it....
The thing that I really liked about it was the samples and style of the music. It came out in 1989, about the same time as Hellbound - Hellraiser II. This album as samples from the original Hellraiser, so listening to this album while watching (or having watched) Hellbound really made my spirit shiver and curl. Just creepy and frightening.
As the time has passed, I've found that I have to be in a really special mood to sit and listen to this. Even the simple drive in the car with this playing is a little rough. It's dark, seductive yet uncomfortable at the same time. It just makes me feel uneasy now. A little creeped out.
As for Cosey Fanni Tutti, be very careful when you Google her name. You'd be surprised as to the pics you may find, based on her past career. Naughty naughty!!!
