Chris Carter’s “Miscellany” is a box set of remastered solo albums, plus a disc of previously unreleased archival recordings from 1973-1977. The vinyl edition is limited to 1000 units and contains two LPs and two double LPs, with a 12-page, 12-inch booklet featuring rare and unseen images, synthesiser schematics and ephemera from Chris Carter’s archive. Both Disobedient and Small Moon will be available here for the first time on vinyl. As a founding member of Throbbing Gristle alongside Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Chris Carter has had a significant role in the development of electronic music – a journey which has continued through his releases as one half of Chris & Cosey, Carter Tutti and a third of Carter Tutti Void, as well as with his own solo and collaborative releases. He is also credited with the invention and production of ground-breaking electronics – from the legendary Gristleizer self-built effects unit through to the Dirty Carter Experimental Sound Generating Instrument, the sold-out TG One Eurorack module (designed with Tiptop Audio) and the Future Sound Systems Gristleizer modules – Carter has created the means to make sounds as well as making the sounds themselves.
