***Received a 7.8 rating from Pitchfork. Industrial Records presents the much-anticipated two album release Desertshore/The Final Report, a unique collaboration by CHRIS CARTER, PETER “SLEAZY” CHRISTOPHERSON, and COSEY FANNI TUTTI. This is a two album release celebrating both the progress inherent in change and the fulfillment of two exceptional, yet separate projects. The Desertshore project is a "re-imagined" cover version of Nico's seminal 1970 album, first conceived by the late Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson in Berlin in 2006. In 2010 at his home in Bangkok, he refocused his approach, readying to record guest vocalists while Chris and Cosey prepared material in their UK studio for his return there in December. Sadly, Sleazy unexpectedly died in his sleep on the 25th of November in Bangkok. Chris and Cosey made a commitment to Sleazy to complete the Desertshore project picking up from where they left off just prior to his untimely passing. With enthusiastic support and contributions from so many who were close to Sleazy, especially the guest artists whose work he admired: ANTONY, MARC ALMOND, BLIXA BARGELD, SASHA GREY and GASPAR NOE. Throughout their 36 year friendship, Carter, Christopherson, and Cosey Fanni Tutti produced many pioneering and acclaimed collaborative works together. These trio sessions were without exception always very productive; ideas that produced many hours of recordings, sound experiments, research in new performance possibilities, visuals, the ongoing design and building of new and innovative instruments; a constant restless exploration of new paths together. The Final Report album was completed from their final 2009/2010 sessions together at Chris and Cosey's studio in Norfolk. This album stands as the final report: a celebration, a loving remembrance of their unique partnership. Industrial Records Ltd. is proud to release these two extraordinary recordings together. The CD edition comes with a 12-page booklet, a postcard, and one bonus track. LP edition includes a 12” booklet.
