Chris Carter - Mondo Beat (LP)
Mondo Beat was originally recorded from March to July 1984 at S47 Studio, London but not released until February 1985. This is one of Carter’s most commercially accessible albums and is a favorite of classic goth and industrial fans. Re-released in 1989, the album is now available as part of the Mute x Chris Carter reissue series. 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.
