Chris and Cosey - Night Shift (1982, UK, electronic) 
Thursday, October 26, 2006, 06:03 PM - Music, - UK, English
Chris and Cosey were part of Throbbing Gristle, together with Peter Christopherson and Genesis P-Orridge.
I catched a glimpse of the latter when I was performing with Raudio for le Placard in the basement of Paradiso, Amsterdam, two weeks ago; Psychic TV was playing on the main stage.
