Songs Of Love & Lust (LP)
Originally released in 1984, Chris & Cosey's 3rd album proper 'Songs Of Love & Lust' contained two seminal moments in 'Driving Blind' and the timeless electronic thrill of 'Walking Through Heaven', both of which have cast a shadow of influence and inspiration on an entire generation of electronic artists and producers. On transparent turquoise vinyl. Songs Of Love & Lust was originally released by Rough Trade Records in 1984 and at the time was considered to be quite a departure for both Chris & Cosey and Rough Trade. The album contains Chris & Cosey's trademark infectious rhythms, melodic tunes, edgy guitar, wailing cornet and of course Cosey's unique vocals -- which give a dark and sensual edge to the production. Includes a glossy insert with historic photographs and press clippings.
"A vice-like turn of the screw that is at once dreamy, hard and compelling. A gathering of all those forces which give electronic music a heart of its own. This is seduction!" --Adrian Jones (City Limits, 1984)
"Chris & Cosey's alluring invitation is to try another world: their promise is that the possibilities should be endless." --Don Watson (NME, 1984)
