Product Description

Product Description

Industrial Records is proud to announce the much anticipated TWO album release DESERTSHORE / THE FINAL REPORT, a unique collaboration by Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson and Cosey Fanni Tutti, available from 26th November 2012. This is a two album release celebrating both the progress inherent in change and the fulfilment of two exceptional, yet separate projects. Desertshore The Desertshore project is a 're-imagined' cover version of Nico s seminal 1970 album first conceived by the late Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson in Berlin 2006. In 2010 at his home in Bangkok, he re-focussed his approach readying to record guest vocalists while Chris and Cosey prepared material in their UK studio for his return there in December. Sadly, Sleazy unexpectedly died in his sleep on the 25th November in Bangkok. Chris and Cosey made a commitment to Sleazy to complete the Desertshore project picking up from where they left off just prior to his untimely passing. With enthusiastic support and contributions from so many who were close to Sleazy, especially the guest artistes whose work he admired; Antony, Marc Almond, Blixa Bargeld, Sasha Grey and Gaspar Noé, the project is now complete. "a quite remarkable set of songs, a repurposing of Nico's maudlin, scraping sorrow into the deep mindmassaging electronics that characterised later live work by Throbbing Gristle, X-TG and Carter Tutti, arguably even Coil's Ape Of Naples." Luke Turner for The Quietus as part of a review of a live remix preview performance of Desertshore at AV Festival 2012. The Final Report Throughout their 36 year friendship Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson and Cosey Fanni Tutti produced many pioneering and acclaimed collaborative works together. These trio sessions were without exception always very productive; ideas that produced many hours of recordings, sound experiments, research in new performance possibilities, visuals, the ongoing design and building of new and innovative instruments; a constant restless exploration of new paths together. The Final Report album has been completed from their final 2009/2010 sessions together at Chris and Cosey's studio in Norfolk. This album stands as the final report; a celebration, a loving remembrance of their unique partnership. Industrial Records Ltd are proud to release these TWO extraordinary recordings. Double CD - in bespoke CD packaging, 12 page booklet, postcard & bonus track.

.....simply stunning. How long have we been waiting for this release - Was it worth the wait? YES!

Double CD featuring as you are well aware 3 of the 4 members of TG performing Nico's 1970 masterpiece Desertshore. The 2nd CD titled The Final Chapter is just that, the final X-TG recordings. Oh and the packaging is just beautiful featuring large booklet, postcard and the 2 discs slip nicely inside the inside cover of the thick white package. 5 stars all the way.

I honestly feel that the music TG/X-TG have produced since they began working together in 2004 has been possibly been some of the best music thet have ever made together. The Endless Not, The Third Mind Movements and TG Now - buy them all!

I'll keep it simple. Stunningly beautiful, moving and thought provoking. The production is a triumph and I can think of no better tribute to the late Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson and TG than this. THE album of 2012 - and just in the nick time.

I love Nico's work and there are several tribute cover albums that I really treasure, but honestly I'm disappointed. Maybe if I were more of a fan of the artists, TG etc., then I would get it.

It went wrong for me on the first line of the first track, when I realised Anthony was already mumbling "lunacy" while I was still waiting to hear a proper "janitor". (check out the spelling there guys: it's not janiter). Actually, it gets better through the rest of that track, but then there was only one or two other tracks that could keep my attention.

Sorry to be negative. I am into the The Young Gods and can happily listen to the whole of Metal Machine Music,if teh volume is right, so I felt I ought be be able to like this more.

Chris, Cosey, and a host of sincere artists ranging from Blixa Bargeld to Pierce and Massimo pay proper tribute to Peter who has given given given given and given of the best of everything all his life long - cut too short. This, especially disc 1, the only album i have found that truly and properly and deservedly respects the deeply missed and lovingly loved Peter. Disc 1 is the closest relative i ever heard of Coil - and, if you ever heard Coil, you will know that is praise to the sky and to the core of the earth. Disc 2 is visceral pleasure: X-TG, TG after Gen deserted. 'Desertshore' amazingly respects and radically remodels Nico's original with intelligence and befitting integrity. Nico's: 'Desertshore' is a work of unparalleled exquisite insightful humanity, comparable with every other work Nico ever released (please note: intentional contradiction, not dualism rather whole and complete). X-TG's: 'Desertshore/ The Final Report' is a work of unparalleled exquisite insightful humanity, comparable with the innovation and craft of the Creative Technology Institute, Conspiracy International, Chris & Cosey, Carter-Tutti, Throbbing Gristle - and drip-feeding life back in to the blood-wound left by Coil's departure: loss so deep, apparently only X-TG and Cyclobe can ... apparently only Cyclobe and X-TG have the bone marrow ...

I was lucky enough to be at the ICA when the original sessions for this album were recorded. Sadly much has happened since then and this is not what I heard all those years ago. But it is a fitting tribute both to Throbbing Gristle, X-TG and Nico.

What a way to bow out.

Clearly as they have moved through time - the earlier sonic abrasiveness has been sanded down to be replaced instead by a sheer drop into a pit of adventurousness, which has become forever more pronounced. So it is into Nico's world we journey and the descent is a pleasure.

The final? offering is the best piece of cohesion they have ever achieved and a re-influence of Coil along with the melodics of Chris and Cosey injected back into the mainframe of TG.

Gone are Neil's vocals, as he left the other three to complete this piece of stunning music. But never fret, the other guest vocalists (Blixa, Anthony etc) bring out the hidden vistas within the rolling musical landscape, as the emotional resonances shift around as a kaleidoscope in the palms of a manic pair of hands. Gradually building the electronic bytes in layers as Sleazy, Chris and Cosey come together to cross wires and make something aspirational, coated in a luminous humming wonder and perhaps even.... joyous. Sleazy would have been proud of the final event as it unfolds it builds upon the Coil ideologies, without ever selling its soul to the corporate worlds of the advert.

Given the basis of the event is Nico's blast into sheer nihilism, this ascension into the realms of joy is no mean feat.

The other disc blows through the distinct revolution in changes as TG take on the pulses and frequencies they initially ushered in, later reworked throughout the 90's, to reposition themselves at the centre of the avant garde. Building from 20 Jazz Funk Greats and An Endless Not, they use the various frequencies to continue to explore.

A stunning two disc presentation, a fitting tribute to one of the pioneers who never surrendered and kept on blooming beyond the final end.

There is a feeling of detachement and loos about this album. Something sad and pale and it's not just all about all the dead musicians involved in this product.
As a album cover, so far away of the original, it works very well, the songs are no just covers, they are realy new songs. The problem is that Nico is more a performance artist than a songwriter. She could read the telephone book and you will be totaly seduced about her voice and performing. Here the feeling is that some, in general, good musicians and performers try too hård to make something sublime. The result is not bad, there are a lot og magic moments, but at the same time the feeling is tat you are listen to the pale shadow of a masterpiece.
