Carter Tutti Void - Transverse
Buy it direct from the band here - http://cartertuttivoid.sandbag.uk.com/Store/DII-230-5-transverse+download+wav.html
From the fine tradition of bands using their surnames as a group name like Emerson Lake and Palmer or Crosby Stills and Nash comes Carter Tutti Void. That's Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti from Throbbing Gristle (and Chris & Cosey). The Void is someone from a newer Kraut-rocky band from London called Factory Floor. Missed them at Supersonic the other year because i sneared at the description and went and got some food instead. My mistake, I've checked out some Factory Floor and it's good stuff.
Back to Carter Tutti Void, it's a repetitive mix of Kraut and techno but with an early 80s industrial feel and live slightly clanky instruments. Those are all good things by the way. I guess it's almost like a bleaker, grimmer English industrial version of what the Moritz Von Oswald Trio have been doing in the past few years.
Love to see this done live at some point. For now the recording will do.
