REVIEWS (this is just a selection as there are too many to list here)

“this memoir is a rigorous extension of Tutti’s art-as-life philosophy in its most accessible form.” MTV News

Book of the day “elder stateswoman of the avant garde” -
The Guardian

‘Cosey Fanni Tutti… cultural iconoclast' - i-D Magazine

'Entirely gripping… direct and funny' - Sunday Telegraph - 4 Stars ★★★★

'Easily my favourite book of 2017 so far' -
Dangerous Minds

‘Art Sex Music is an inspiring document of just how far, and far out, she has travelled’ -
Sunday Times

‘A fascinating document…’ -
Drowned In Sound

‘a frequently jaw-dropping rollercoaster tale, Cosey pulls few punches’ - Record Collector - 4 Stars ★★★★

'A fearless and frequently eye-popping account of her life' -
Uncut 8/10

‘Art Sex Music is an essential read… Fearless, powerful, humorous, warm and intelligent, Cosey is everything and this book is a manual for anyone wanting to be the same.’ -
Louder Than War 9/10

'Tutti's commitment to individualism precludes any wider political perspective on the industrial culture she helped to instigate, but this fierce adherence to herself… has taken her closer to the action than most' -
The Wire

“Unapologetically candid” Savage

'An unfussy narrative that's rich in everyday observation, a style that reflects the blunt honesty that was a hallmark of Throbbing Gristle's life-as-art aesthetic' -

'For someone with an (imagined) fearsome reputation as an “out there” artist, this memoir succeeds because the details unfold at a gentle pace… you don’t get any sense of bitterness about the things that have gone awry, just a sense of wonder related to the things that have gone right. That kind of positivity, in these awful times, is exactly what we need.' -
