Powered by Audioscrobbler™Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti formed Chris & Cosey out of the ashes of their seminal 70s industrial band Throbbing Gristle. Throbbing Gristle (and Carter/Tutti) founded the Industrial music genre and were one of the first bands to successfully fuse electronic and acoustic instrumentation.

When Throbbing Gristle was terminated in 1981, Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti signed to Rough Trade Records and began recording and performing as Chris & Cosey. From the very start they indulgently utilised electronics, sampling, rhythms and Cosey's distinctive vocals, cornet and guitar style. In 1983 they formed their own offshoot record label Conspiracy International (aka: CTI) for their more experimental recordings and collaborative projects. CTI continues to run alongside their more accessible work.

During the 1980's and 90's Chris & Cosey went on to record some of the most inventive Electronica albums, including the much sampled and remixed TRANCE album (1982), the Techno Pop classic OCTOBER Love Song (1983) and the West Coast and Goa dance floor hit EXOTIKA (1987).

In 1992 after many gruelling tours and for both health and artistic reasons they decided to scale down their live performances and concentrate on studio recordings.

Since their inception they have collaborated with such artists and musical luminaries as Monte Cazazza, Coil, Current 93, John Duncan, Erasure, Eurythmics, Boyd Rice, Robert Wyatt. Their music has also been remixed by Carl Craig, Cosmic Connection, Fred Giannelli, Daniel Miller, µ-Ziq, Vapourspace and Andrew Weatherall.

June 2004 saw the release of CABAL, the debut album under their newly adopted Carter Tutti name.

2003-2004 also saw Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti collaborating once again with Peter Christopherson and Genesis P-Orridge for a regrouping of Throbbing Gristle. This resulted in an album of new TG material and a live performance in London.
