Both previously members of pioneering industrial music legends Throbbing Gristle, Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti teamed up to form Chris & Cosey in 1981 and released a series of acclaimed records. Exotika, released in 1987 via P.I.A.S., is widely considered as one of their finest, its title track adopted as an electronica anthem in East and West Coast gay clubs in the Eighties. It now gets reissued on transparent violet-coloured vinyl.

8/10 Jack 9th February 2016Chris & Cosey are an amazing duo, and the Exotika album is one of their best known. The songs "Arcade" and "Vengeance" are just amazing tour de force exercises in brute synthetic sensuality. Useful for proving to teenyboppers that 'electronica' existed way back in the '80s. My favourite here is "Dr John (Sleeping Stephen)", deceptively sounding like a sad pop song but if you listen closely you'll hear Cosey intoning the most macabre lyrics that will send chills down your spine. Something like a much more extreme Eurythmics.
