CHRIS & COSEY / CARTER TUTTI - NEWS ARCHIVE 2004
We are stunned and saddened beyond words by the sudden tragic death of our dear friend Geoff (John Balance).
There are no words to describe the sense of loss we feel for his unique spirit. We will cherish forever the pleasure and laughter he gave us from his presence and his long conversations on the meanings and meanderings of life itself. Our hearts and embraces go out to Sleazy and Ian. Chris & Cosey

The programme is available nationwide in the UK on FM radio and also as an audio stream worldwide via the BBC website.
The refurbishment of our CTI studio (S47UK) is now about 90% complete. We have scaled down our equipment and sold a lot of our old gear (some went back as far as TG) and streamlined our work area as much as possible. The overbearing bulk of equipment and machines we had previously was threatening to fall down around our ears, literally. Photos we've posted of the new layout don't show much instrumentation (guitars, mics, cornet, drum pads, effects units etc.) as these are now stored in cupboard space we've built down one side of the room. The new space is much lighter and airy and has a really good vibe and we have already returned to working on projects we postponed before the refit.

CTI are pleased to announce that from the beginning of September our CD catalogue will be
distributed worldwide by CARGO RECORDS.

NEW CARTER TUTTI CD RELEASE
CARTER TUTTI Live Concert LEM Festival October 4, 2003.
This album is a new Carter Tutti live CD recorded at the LEM Festival in Barcelona, Spain last year and released on the Gliptoteka Magdalae label. Although this CD contains some of the same titles as the new CABAL CD these tracks sound very different to that album. This CD was the first live performance of the songs and allows you to hear their development prior to CABAL.
CARTER TUTTI LIVE, LEM Festival October 2003 is a beautifully recorded, gatefold Digipak, limited edition release and is available now from CTI Mail Order or thru all good record stores. * This CD was NOT distributed by WS and so should be generally available.
