Default The super fantastic Coil mega thread!

I did some hard searching and found no thread dedicated to this beast. So let's talk all things Coil. Let me start off by saying that Time Machines is incredible. I'm keeping it short, because Coil needs no introduction.

Time Machines is indeed great, in fact it's one of my favourite drone albums. Horse Rotorvator and Scatology are also excellent.

Whole heartedly agree. Back in the 70's, TG came to mean so much to me - one of the first bands to really load my head with what was musically possible besides what I was hearing on the radio, etc. and as they splintered off in all their separate directions, I think it was Coil more than any others who carried on that spirit of discovery. Right up until the very end, they were just releasing one incredible record after another. Sleazy was all set to carry on that tradition and it still bums the **** out of me that he is gone.

I recently stumbled across a copy of the Hellraiser album. Just a 10" EP of lost soundtrack music, but absolutely killer!

i think November should be The Coil Month

i just realized that Chris and Cosey will release the final Throbbing Gristle album on the anniversary of Peter's death

i cannot wait to hear their interpretation of Nico's Desert shore album

I never realised there was a TG > Coil connection... interesting. I came across both bands independently although I only had Scatology by Coil. Suppose I should get around to checking out the rest of their work.

I first heard of Coil in late 90-th, but got really obsessed in 2007 (and that lasted a couple of years). I think Horse Rotorvator is my favourite album.

i have got to say it in a way blows my mind that someone could have found Coil without knowing Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV before hand....very interesting

i would have to agree that for an overall album and an excellent perfect understanding of what Coil was (so much more than just music) the best place to start is with Horse Rotorvator....although i must admit that these days i prefer their later "Moon Musick" days

there simply is not a bad track on Horse Rotorvator examples


and my personally favorite song by the band.....and possibly one of my all time favorite songs.....certainly when considering lyrics


i mean does it get more bone chilling than
"a mind like a cemetery
where the corpses
are turning
where the bodies
twist deep
in the frozen grip
of a dreamless sleep"

or

"He says, "Death
he is my friend
He promised me
a quick end".
Says, "The world is
in pain
and should be
put down
and God is a sadist
and that he knows it"

i highly suggest Coil for anybody who has ever been interested in the effects of psychedelics on the mind(s) where music is concerned, anybody who has ever had interest in Thelemic gnostic ideals and practices, or anybody who has ever wondered about the concept of sound and music as a way to harness and control sexual energy....in this case specifically male energy

I was also unaware at the time of the Throbbing Gristle > Psychic TV connection but in those days I got onto a lot of music through hearing it on the radio and I'm sure the music geek djs I listened to would have known the lineage.

In fact, Coil was the most depressive band I've ever listened to, NWW was another one.
