Chris Carter 'Miscellany' Box Set
Chris Carter, who recently released his first solo album release in 17 years, the acclaimed ‘Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lessons Volume One’, announces a new box set of his early work, collating remastered (and mastered for the first time) solo albums alongside an album of unreleased archival recordings from 1973-1977.

Chris Carter’s ‘Miscellany’ is available as a 6-piece vinyl box set with 12-page 12” sized booklet featuring rare and unseen images, synthesiser schematics and ephemera from Chris Carter’s archive. Both ‘Disobedient’ and ‘Small Moon’ are available for the first time on vinyl. It will contain the following solo albums: ‘Mondo Beat’ (1985) - clear vinyl; ‘Disobedient’ (1998) - double purple vinyl, includes new track ‘Disobedient Redux’; ‘Small Moon’ (1999) - double white vinyl, includes new track ‘Small Moon Redux’; ‘Archival Recordings 1973 - 1977’ - blue vinyl (unreleased).

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 and 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 groundbreaking 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.
