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

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

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

Alex in NYC, Friday, 1 February 2002 01:00 (seventeen 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 (seventeen 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 (seventeen 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 (seventeen 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 (seventeen 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)

gareth (gareth), Sunday, 24 November 2002 17:54 (sixteen years ago) link

not tainted love! umm, their cover of who by fire was good, i think. maybe "the first five minutes after death"? i haven't listened to any coil in years...

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 24 November 2002 18:39 (sixteen 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.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 24 November 2002 18:43 (sixteen years ago) link

Baby Dee, a Current 93-related project, is AWESOME.

J0hn Darn13ll3 (J0hn Darn13ll3), Sunday, 24 November 2002 18:49 (sixteen years ago) link

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 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 (sixteen years ago) link

recently rereleased at that

Are they available as a domestic release in the U.S.?

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.

jess (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 16 March 2003 05:44 (sixteen years ago) link

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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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.

rex jr., Tuesday, 18 March 2003 16:22 (sixteen years ago) link

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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 06:33 (fifteen years ago) link

Oh dear. Oh dear indeed. Oh, BTW, Toby, coz I'm too lazy to look up your old thread. Are you still interested in the new TG stuff, or did you find it already? I've got some and I didn't have to sign seven layers of secrecy to get it, mwah hah hah.

Apostrophe Catastrophe (kate), Wednesday, 23 June 2004 07:19 (fifteen years ago) link

i've got tgnow if that's what you're talking about kate - but if you have anything else then i'm interested, and thanks in any case.

yes, it is a bit oh dear. i'm sure i'll have gone off coil again in a few days, don't worry.

toby (tsg20), Wednesday, 23 June 2004 09:03 (fifteen 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.)

People love Gravity and Evolution! (kate), Wednesday, 23 June 2004 09:05 (fifteen years ago) link

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 (fourteen 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 (fourteen years ago) link

buy that new one and resell the ebay one?

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

Is Loves Secret Domain really hard to come by nowadays? I thought it was just remastered and reissued in 2001.

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


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!

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 14 May 2005 01:51 (fourteen 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.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 14 May 2005 01:59 (fourteen years ago) link

See, now, that's how they get you. If you were sure of what it was, it wouldn't be as upsetting.

daria g (daria g), Saturday, 14 May 2005 04:33 (fourteen years ago) link

The live drums fills on the title track of Love's Secret Domain are hugely satisfying.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 14 May 2005 05:32 (fourteen years ago) link

those are by Charles Hayward, drummer from This Heat.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 21 April 2019 02:23 (three months ago) link

Anyway I do think it's interesting how Hyde and McDowall are essentially reclaiming the mid 90's legacy in different ways. (The latter strictly via specific reissues, granted.)

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 21 April 2019 02:25 (three months ago) link

Also, Hyde allegedly has *another* archival release coming, an expanded version of The Gay Man's Guide To Safer Sex tracks:

Per a note appended:

Hello everyone, just to reassure you, this is an official release, licensed from Danny Hyde, released with his blessing, with HQ files + a CD version for those who like it like that. We can't wait for this to come out, when we get a release date we'll let you know. Thanks ! Ed @ Musique Pour La Danse

Said label's site:

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 21 April 2019 02:41 (three months ago) link

I'm not sure whether a new Coil release being "licensed from Danny Hyde" necessarily makes it official at this point. Who knows where the rights lie.

the word dog doesn't bark (anagram), Sunday, 21 April 2019 06:16 (three months ago) link

Thought it was discussed upthread but no, at this point nothing is official that gets newly released or reissued. It’s all essentially a bootleg one way or another because there’s no central estate.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 21 April 2019 13:01 (three months ago) link

Man there really is a new flood on, here's another live 'authorized bootleg' via Soleilmoon:

“Porto” is the only authorized bootleg live recording of a Coil live performance.
Coil performed on 21 June 2003 at the Casa da Música Festival in Porto, Portugal. Present on stage that night were Peter Christopherson, Ossian Brown and Thighpaulsandra. Jhonn Balance was not part of the lineup, possibly due to his drug and alcohol addictions. Because of his absence the music on this recording is entirely instrumental. The show was also notable for being Ossian’s last appearance with Coil.
This edition is manufactured and released in Portugal, and is distributed in North America by Soleilmoon. Royalties will be paid to the remaining artists involved in the concert.
1. Blue Rats (18:14)
2. Triple Sun (12:56)
3. Radio Westin (13:32)
4. Drip Drop (10:04)
5. The First Five Minutes After Death (11:24)

This all still seems a bit odd. Should they be getting profit from this? Educate me if I'm wrong. I thought the website said royalties went to surviving members. I'd love more Coil out there but this is just more bootlegs, right?

kraudive, Thursday, 16 May 2019 01:58 (three months ago) link

I mean, they say as much on the Soleilmoon listing:

These are NOT QUALITY CONTROLLED Coil products. They should not be regarded as such. Coil was Geff Rushton (John Balance) and Peter Christopherson (Sleazy). Without the two of them, there is no Coil and thus no official Coil product. Threshold Archives was begun by Peter Christopherson to empty the archives of unreleased material and make music easily affordable for fans. Do not spend large amounts for these items. While Peter collaborated on the tracklists, the artwork was never finalized, and Coil was much more than simply the music contained in the product. In Peter’s words, he expressed his desire for a “case solid enough to stand up on its own” for the set so there may or may not be a construction kit forthcoming. Peter’s share of the proceeds will once again be donated to the SET Foundation and as before, payments will be issued to other contributors and survivors.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 16 May 2019 02:10 (three months ago) link

cool, two days after "...And The Ambulance Died In His Arms"

in other news, Swanyard has some high points but a LOT of track duplication. Disappointing overall, and probably should have been a single CD, but hey why not release everything even if it's multiple versions (some tracks are repeated three times).

Oh cool, I was at that ATP performance. I mostly remember Balance repeatedly asking them to turn the volume up.

I was at that ATP and saw that performance.
I had no idea who Coil were at the time and couldn't decide if I was meant to find it funny or not.

I had somehow missed that there are two competing versions of the Black Light District reissue, the Infinite Fog version has a bonus track but the Dais version supposedly has better sound.
