The past is so present in today's musical landscape that you can easily connect the dots when an artist looks backwards. A greatest-hits tour on its third go-around or a lengthy set of dates performing a single album from start to finish—both reek of good ideas gone stale, or some form of stasis winning out over creative urges. The difference between a cash grab and a victory lap feels ever more slight.
Let's get the big business out of the way: There are some musicians who'll see a door, and run straight through it. Together, the duo of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti – who formed Chris & Cosey, and later Carter Tutti - neither make casual music, nor do they make music casually. They create as if their lives are at stake, and we respond in kind.
