"[This book] is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades. It is the account of an artist who, as part of COUM Transmissions, represented Britain at the IXth Biennale de Paris, whose Prostitution show at the ICA in 1976 caused the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn to declare her, COUM and Throbbing Gristle 'Wreckers of Civilisation'... shortly before he was arrested for indecent exposure, and whose work continues to be held at the vanguard of contemporary art. And it is the story of her work as a pornographic model and striptease artiste which challenged assumptions about morality, erotica, and art. Wise, shocking, and elegant, this is the life of Cosey Fanni Tutti."

Terrific memoir by Cosey Fanni Tutti, a founding member of the British performance art troupe COUM, the highly influential band Throbbing Gristle (who pretty much invented Industrial music), and the excellent electronic music pioneers (formed from the ashes of TG) Chris & Cosey. She talks about her careers in performance, music, and art; her time working in the sex industry; and her life, in a very engaging way.
