2019 repress on transparent turquoise vinyl. Songs Of Love & Lust was originally released by Rough Trade Records in 1984 and at the time was considered to be quite a departure for both Chris & Cosey and Rough Trade. The album contains Chris & Cosey’s trademark infectious rhythms, melodic tunes, edgy guitar, wailing cornet and of course Cosey’s unique vocals — which give a dark and sensual edge to the production. Includes a glossy insert with historic photographs and press clippings.
“A vice-like turn of the screw that is at once dreamy, hard and compelling. A gathering of all those forces which give electronic music a heart of its own. This is seduction!” –Adrian Jones (City Limits, 1984)
“Chris & Cosey’s alluring invitation is to try another world: their promise is that the possibilities should be endless.” –Don Watson (NME, 1984)
