Cosey Fanni Tutti - "Time To Tell" (Flowmotion) 1983

Whoe!...steady on boys......this is "ART",and definitely NOT the exploitation of female sexuality!

A Special release on the Flowmotion label.
A one-sided C60 with a newspaper magazine featuring articles, readings and interviews on Cosey Fanni Tutti, Throbbing Gristle and CTI.
Cosey's first solo release, a foray into early dark ambient territory,with sultry spoken word passages.Good for flotation tank dwellers.
And as normal with Industrial genre releases, there's plenty of multi-media content to entertain.Especially lovely is the full length shot of the Industrial Queen herself, bedecked only in a pair of wedgey sandals.
This is far more wholesome soft-porn than the relentless Sexual Propaganda we see today from the likes of Miley Cyrus and Rihanna; or should I say the shape-shifting reptilian hybrid psychopaths behind them. Brain washing our children to be lazy sex obsessed obese morons directly attached to a Sony PS3 or X-Box by the cerebral cortex.
The soft porn here is more likely a statement of these facts,and also that a woman can retain her sensuality and be clever?
It also doesn't harm the sales figures either,but hopefully that is a byproduct.
Basically it satirizes the exploitation of both men and women by the media.
Track Listing:

Time to Smell: a haiku review

Reissued? For real?
Begs the question, does sex sell?
Apparently so!

CFT is beyond sexism. She's a progressive, an exploiter of sexists.

Great sandals too.

The music is superb stuff as well - easily the equal of anything by TG themselves.
Now off the get the Chris Carter.

I know this is a great release!
I have one. When I saw them in person in of all places, Norman, Oklahoma, (!!) I asked Cosey if I could hug her. I had taken some stuff, to enhance my listening experience. She politely declined. But it was a special show, in a small venue, with less than 50 (?!) in attendance. 1986 ?

A town called Norman???
Q/How do you frighten a Brit? Ask if you A/can hug him or her.

Was this a solo show, or Chris and Cosey?

I don't know if it's possible, but anyone holds the lyrics of this tape?

A cheap whore. She was a hardcore porn actress before TG.

Strictly soft core actually. Although she was often seen with genisis's knob in her mingle in the name of shock-art.
Cheap whore she may be in your world but she was in throbbing gristle and you were not.
