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..

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.

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) Permalink

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.

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..

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

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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

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

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

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) Permalink

...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.

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.

...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) Permalink

...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.

"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 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

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 23:24 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

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/

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.

I think there's a noncommittal vagueness to repeatedly implying something and saying "I have been vocal about _this_" while alluding to Saville, etc. and posting 4chan screenshots, and not explicitly saying what you mean

there's an implication but not an accusation, and it all reads very much like gossip

Being able to buy Coil CDs in HMV in a non descript Northern town (Warrington) is an odd thing but I picked up a copy of Worship the Glitch in there last Sunday. It feels right. I want them to seep into other people's lives and their waking lives the way they have mine. Feels right to be able to walk to my flat just minutes walk from the Mersey river, past the weird sports bar where the owner first played me early Tangerine Dream to listen to it. Feels like the sort of thing that'd make Geff and Sleazy happy.

Wow. I hope this isn't too limited, as I can't afford this at the moment!

That will do.

Meantime, Thighpaulsandra is apparently continuing the Live series:

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.)

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

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.

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.

Exactly so, which is why I was surprised that you quoted that discogs note without comment.

*shrug* I just read it as authorized by Danny Hyde. Maybe he’s trying to leave Cold Spring behind.
