This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I received this item as an Early Reviewers copy at LibraryThing, and am glad to give my personal opinion of the book.

This is an enormous brick of a book! It's basically a memoir, so I wish there were tons of photographs, and there are none--zero, zero, zero. That would add a lot of interest to the book even for non-Cosi Fan Tutti fans. As it is, you might have to be a Cosi Fan Tutti aficionado to enjoy this.

It's basically in a diaristic format. I think she's reconstructing her life and career. I don't know that it's based on any actual diary.

The plain design of the book is handsome, but I find the intense cover a little unsettling--some artsy music person staring at me! ( )

Autobiography of Cosey Fanni Tutti, a musician and performance artist. Although she states the book was "tough" to write it appears to be written in a comfortable, easy to read format, using the diaries she kept through the years to provide much detail. Like she says it was written not as a rose-tinted view of her past! ( )

This is an autobiography, not to be confused with a book by a talented writer. Her world is not at all my world, and while this fact expands my horizons, it is not a world or a culture I want to live in or learn about. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571328512, Paperback)

Art Sex Music 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.
