CHRIS & COSEY / CARTER TUTTI - NEWS ARCHIVE 2008
CARTER TUTTI FILM - UPDATE
The completion of the Carter Tutti 'Feral Vapours of The Silver Ether' film is unfortunately now on hold for the foreseeable future and will most likely not get finished. We may reconsider the situation in a couple of years, or incorporate elements of what has been shot into another project, but for now it will not be completed or released.
Cosey and Chris have each recently updated their personal bogs at: coseyfannitutti.com and chriscarter.co.uk
The blogs are mirrored on their personal MySpace pages, where comments can also be left.

COSEY’s HEALTH ISSUES
Some of you may have already heard, or not, but Cosey has been extremely ill since the beginning of the year. It is unrelated to her existing heart condition, which is ongoing and under control. However, this meant the majority of our upcoming projects and all our current activities were rescheduled or put on hold. Cosey's health has thankfully improved somewhat in the last few weeks, although she still has some way to go before a full recovery, but we are now in a position where we can attempt to slowly begin catching up with our most pressing or outstanding work.
CARTER TUTTI FILM
Number one on our 'to-do' list has been starting our Feral Vapours film, which we are hoping will be released on DVD later (much later) than we originally planned. We have also completed contributions for a number of compilations and collaborations that will be released in the coming months (details when we have them). We will definitely be playing some Carter Tutti shows in Europe this year but are waiting on final confirmations before we make any announcements, which will be soon. In a couple of weeks we will also begin preparations for a few European Throbbing Gristle shows this Summer.
