well you know what to do.. get to it!

Wyndham Earl, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

i hope you havent already done this one. i checked the c/d s/d categories at the bottom and there was no evidence of it..

Wyndham Earl, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Destroy: Angelic Converstaion, Astral Distaser (kewl name, crap album), The Queens of the Circulating Library. Gold is the Metal.

Search: Most everything else, but I happen to like early/mid 90's coil best: Love's Secret Domain, Stolen & Contaminated Songs, Black Light Distict, Worship the Glitch, Unnatural History 3.

Classic, obviously.

fletrejet, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

back after a while.... well in coil's recent production there's more than a gem and my preferences would go to music to play in the dark vol1and2 and worship the glitch . their best older albums are horse rotorvator and love's secret domain.... but this is just a start cuz the whole of their production has something interesting in it....

francesco, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

We must have done this sometime but... The two big starting points for older Coil would have to be the albums Love's Secret Domain and Horse Rotarvator. Destroy: Gold is the Metal. Time Machines, like most of their newer stuff, is a bit too abstract for my tastes.

bnw, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

it sounds like the kind of thing you would have done. i know you did a nurse with wound one and i can't find that anywhere, which is annoying cos i wanted to do a nurse with wound s/d..

Wyndham Earl, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Most interesting rendition of "Tainted Love." Beautifully harrowing.

Alex in NYC, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

hm, could Glorian Jones have ever conceived that her little northern soul ditty would become such a goth staple..

Wyndham Earl, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

The Nurse with Wound thread is here. Much of these older threads are sitting in the Uncategorized section, after they fall off the New Questions list. There's constant talk about getting the uncategorized section into order, so this may be fixed up in the next decade.

Sean Carruthers, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Oh, and search: Horse Rotorvator. I won't destroy anything because I'm not familiar enough with it.

Sean Carruthers, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

most of their recent stuff successfully blends their more goth-friendly, slightly cheesy elements with modern electronic sounds; specifically search "music to play in the dark" 2 and then 1. "astral disaster" is, if you ask me, some kind of weird tribute to germany in the 1970s. and kate bush. also, "how to destroy angels" (worth it just for the NWW remix of the title), scatology, constant shallowness (mostly noise, but "green child" is great/weird songiness), black light district (excellent side project), and even the snaky, inky blackness of time machines are worth checking out.

overrated: love's secret domain, the hellraiser themes (both of which i sold for $50+ each back in the day, wahoo capitalism) and queens of the circulating library.

your null fame, Monday, 4 February 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Search: Scatology (which is impossible to listen to with the lights off)

Destroy: Tainted Love (lasts for 3 hours and goths like it)

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 24 November 2002 18:39 (nineteen years ago) link

Scatology and The Horse Rotorvator are both great albums (and recently rereleased at that), while the Windowpane and the Snow EP is good testimony to how they both listened to where dance music was going and ended up influencing a fair amount of it (via Warp/Autechre connections), but I'm not as strong as more recent work, unfortunately. These days I seem to be into Current 93 the most.

I should listen to some of Coil's recorded stuff. I saw them live at Mind Your Head Festival 2002 in London (I was there to see Sigur Ros of course) and they sucked REALLY bad. It was the wankiest shit I'd ever fallen asleep to, but people tell me they're far better on record than live. Meh.

i have been playing music to play in the dark volume 2, and i like it. its quite goth of course, but "where are you" is quite deathly...it reminds me of an evil momus

"where are you? no one has seen you in years" is a great line, and should be used more often...people who fall off the radar have been a romantic staple of pop for years of course, but this captures it well

gareth (gareth), Sunday, 22 December 2002 14:14 (nineteen years ago) link

can't believe i missed this for so long...coil are def one of my favorite bands, although i rarely think of them as such. love the early stuff, get iffy on the wax traxian phase, love love LOVE the last four-five years. if 1999/2000 hadn't been such overwhelming years for albums, both vols of musick to play in the dark would have been high placers in my top 10s.

It was a fun moment when dour industrialists like Psychic TV and Coil suddenly caught disco fever and started tooling up for hermetic house tracks. On records like Love's Secret Domain you can hear the pale molemen emerging from the darkness of their secret laboratory and squinting into the light of a mirror ball.

Search: the twisted sound collages, the idiosyncratic approach to house, the chilly ambience.

Destroy: the crypto-sexual conspiracy theorizing, the gothic growling, the big gated eighties drum sounds.

EC, Sunday, 16 March 2003 18:21 (nineteen years ago) link

...meanwhile, Jourgensen & Co. donned their novelty cowboy hats and started building bridges between industrial sauce pan clank-sampling and various forms of mutant rawk: post-hardcore, pigfuck, grindcore, etc.

Coil's disco steps and Ministry's distorted barre chords weaned a lot of listeners from industrial dance's cold and wizened teet. All the A students started sneaking out of the Wax Trax School of Spooky Chain Rattling.
Some fled to a more cheerful dance floor, while others turned to Am Rep and/or Earache for more guitar-based ugliness.

That being said, there are still plenty of clubs which function as industrio-gothic Greenfield Villages, and I'm sure they're very meaningful to their black-clad regulars.


EC, Sunday, 16 March 2003 20:55 (nineteen years ago) link

love love LOVE the last four-five years

this inspired me to check out the recent stuff & jesus christ it's good. i can't stop playing "batwings" (off musick... vol 2). it's going to take an age to listen to all the mp3s i've just downloaded (sometimes slsk just give you too much), but i'm loving it all so far.

It all makes sense when you see the video -- best cameo ever in that too, BTW.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 18 March 2003 16:24 (nineteen years ago) link

...oh yes, and hip hop! Hip hop is the other reason that gore flick sound biting is no longer a viable way to fill a dance floor. The Bomb Squad inspired fans of atonal sound collage to move from the taffy pull to the cabbage patch.

Al was bending the brim of his cowboy hat, and Coil were putting on their boogie shoes, so second-string tin pounders like Meat Beat Manifesto and MC 900 Foot Jesus were left with the thankless task of recording hip hop records for white guys in black clothes.

EC, Wednesday, 19 March 2003 04:39 (nineteen years ago) link

...only it's not so simple. "Industrial dance" was a dark reflection of concurrent forms of dance music since its inception. If you owned "Sensoria," "Every Day is Halloween," and a crushed refrigerator box, you could have been doing some eerie, sex magickal breakdancing throughout the first half of the eighties.

You could have finished your routine by doing the robot with Kraftwerk. Those androids were burning up every dancefloor, cardboard or otherwise. It's no good trying to explain musical genres to dancing robots. They'll just stare blankly at you as they continue to shake their mechanical booties.

i'm pretty into the new album-in-progress, "black antlers". they've done a great cover of "all the pretty horses" for it.

also i heard a track off "plastic spider thing" and it's fantastic, much to my surprise. i might have to check the rest of the album out.

toby (tsg20), Wednesday, 23 June 2004 09:03 (eighteen years ago) link

I don't actually know what I've got - a friend gave me a discload of MP3s I haven't really gone through yet. At least two albums worth, some live and some studio.

(I just said Oh Dear because I've had two days worth of gossip about Coil from two different people in the past week. Oh dear on all levels, really.)

ignore those who said destroy gold is the metal and time machines. everyone knows time machines is a drone masterpiece and gold is the metal is CLASSIC for "cardinal points." Also, search the amethyst deceivers EP. it's a good way to get started on their less danceable stuff.

"Dang, now I'll have to catch up. Of the recent material, I have some of those seasonal EPs, I likes 'em.
-- Ned Raggett (ne...), March 16th, 2003."

Yeah, the four EPs were collected as 'Moon's Milk', which I recommend if you've got time to focus on them, as they move pretty slowly. I like to listen to them while I go to sleep, although there are extremely nutty and frightening tracks at the end and start of the two CDs, so if you're not asleep by them it's pretty fucked.

Other than that I only have 'ove's Secret Domain' which is awesome. I'm always loking for more Coil.

Has anyone heard that track they made featuring a guy's phone message whose boyfriend was a huge Coil fan and topped himself by jumping off a cliff? What's it called?

Also what's with them throwing half their releases off cliffs and things?

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 23 April 2005 05:11 (seventeen years ago) link

Re-posted from another thread.

So, like, I've been entirely steeping myself in COIL these days, trying to catch up. I picked up the re-mastered Horse Rotorvator (though I had the Some Bizarre edition -- which the band has since renounced). I also picked up the Unnatural History II disc in order to finally hear the aborted tracks from Hellraiser (I really wanted them to be scarier, truthfully, but there's a lot of other great stuff on the disc). The stuff I was really looking for but couldn't seem to find, however, was Love's Secret Domain and Musick to Play in the Dark Vol.1. I'd looked all around the likely shops in NYC, but came up empty, and their official site (Threshold House) has closed the shop for now. Failing everything else, I went to eBay, and won a used copy of L's.S.D (at no great savings to me), figuring I'd never find it anywhere else. It hasn't arrived yet.

So, today, on a lark, I pop into Tower Records on Broadway looking for nothing in particular. Once upon a time (in the days of vinyl), if you were looking for a record and Tower didn't have it, there was a good chance that said record simply didn't exist. But, that was then. In the ensuing years, Tower has fallen into a decline that recalls the fall of the Roman Empire. They're a lost cause teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. But sure enough -- push me down the anal staircase! Their in the import section are more COIL releases than I've ever spotted in any locale...including Musick to Play in the Dark Vol.1 (which I instantly snapped up) and....rotorvate my damn horse...Love's Secret Domain...WRAPPED, PRISTINE AND FACTORY SEALED...unlike the used version I'm waiting to arrive in the mail, which -- for all I know -- may have been used as a coaster. I suck.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Sunday, 1 May 2005 22:17 (seventeen years ago) link

I really dig the first vol. of Unnatural History, some really strange sounds on there.

jason., Sunday, 1 May 2005 23:15 (seventeen years ago) link

what do you think of musick to play in the dark alex?

Only got it today, so haven't had a chance to listen to it (it's tough with a little person in the house....I've ripped it to my iPod, so shall listen intently to it soon enough).

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Sunday, 1 May 2005 23:24 (seventeen years ago) link

REVIVE AGAIN!

I'm well into Musick to Play in the Dark 1, though I'm not wild about "The Dreamer is Still Asleep". Love's Secret Domain isn't what I expected at all, but I'm quite enjoying it. I love the title track and the two "Teenage Lightning" tracks. Been downloading some of their other stuff (and oof is there a lot of it). I agree with whomever said it above that much of it is just far too abstract (notably the stuff fom the COIL-ANS box), but none of it is dull, at the very least.

Secondly, the General Store at the Threshold House site is back open...czech it out! http://www.thresholdhouse.com/

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 14 May 2005 01:51 (seventeen years ago) link

From the re-release of Scatology (I have the Some Bizarre edition, not the new one)....this still bothers me (from the original artwork to the The Anal Staircase e.p. I'd say "Not Work Safe," but I'm not entirely sure if the image in the center is...well....what I think it might be.

h/t to StanM for uncovering/discovering these (crossposted from the Ambient Recommendations thread)

https://coh-official.bandcamp.com/

8 Soisong broadcasts have been released already this year - by Ivan Pavlov (COH), not clear how many of this was made when Peter Christopherson was still alive but they're interesting and quite magical at times. Some fleeting beats, 60s chansons or Asian pop songs may also drift in and out, but I'd classify this as ambient, overall.

they are extremely cool and mysterious, a great listen

Listened to the WaxTrax LSD reissue again last night, what a great sounding pressing. I can't imagine that the original LP didn't include Things Happen. A highlight of the album for me.

The booklet with interviews and some great context/production info is really well done.

Such a shame it didn't get a UK/EU release but I'm 100% happy I went with this release. Maybe Waxtrax could add the booklet .pdf to the Bandcamp digital release.

Coil's one of my all time favorite bands but it's weird, now that I have multiple copies of LSD and both volumes of MTPITD, in addition to all the must-have releases I already owned (Horse Rotorvator, Ape of Naples, Black Antlers, And The Ambulance, etc) I kinda think I'm finally done collecting Coil stuff? I mean, given that both Geff and Sleazy are dead and all. Unless there is some crazy revelatory archival thing left to be discovered (doubtful), I think I'm finally OK with what I have.

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 20 December 2021 20:58 (seven months ago) link

paolo, Friday, 20 May 2022 20:05 (two months ago) link

Just listened to a bit of MTPITD2, my first Coil for quite a few years. Then I went back to Broccoli and was reminded of what I always used to think: do people really take acid/mushrooms and listen to Coil? Some of that stuff seems designed to cause a bad trip (I'm fully prepared to be 'missing the point' on this but thought I'd ask).

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Friday, 20 May 2022 20:38 (two months ago) link

i feel MTPITD2 has matured with age and I like it way more now than i did when it came out.

i used to trip to Coil quite a lot, but stopped tripping a little while after "Love's Secret Domain" came out. The one that was way too much to listen to tripping was their Sickness Of Snakes side project but I really did love tripping while listening to those other early albums.

Which color variation did you get? I ended up getting the "transparent crystal blue" or whatever they were calling it, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it sounded, given the dreaded colored vinyl

I used to think I preferred volume 1 but these days I'm leaning toward this second volume being the better of the two, though that could be because I was previously a lot more familiar with Volume 1 for many years ("Batwings" aside)

I always get black if it's an option

Ha, my apologies StanM, had completely missed your post. No killfile, just me being a doof.
