Following the Carter Tutti Void collaboration with Factory Floor’s Nik Colk Void last year, Throbbing Gristle alumni Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti have got back together under their Carter Tutti moniker to make this playful 10” of churning post-industrial grooves. It opens with some dense layers of panicked strings which build in pitch and intensity before we drop into some cold mechanical loopscapes with murky buried melodies and a dizzying array of rhythmic details.
Over on the other side ‘Coolicon Fusion’ is a much slower and darker piece with slow throbbing synths and hard metallic drones floating around in a dubby dark ambient soup anchored by a persistent throbbing bass drum pulse. It’s a chilling afterthought to the A side’s comparatively upbeat rhythmic frenzy.
One thing that I think is a nice touch is that ‘Coolicon’ is the make of metal lampshade Radiophonic Workshop pioneer Delia Derbyshire used to sample in her work, and Cosey has herself sampled distinctive sound of the exact same make of lampshade in the pieces here. A nice little nod to their influences without going overboard into the realms of pastiche. Cool single.
