Einstürzende Neubauten - 09-15-2000, Brussels

2002; 22 tracks

I used to really dislike live albums for some odd reason, but after hearing Coil's ...And the Ambulance Died In Their Arms, I knew that live albums were really amazing. As my friend put it, they are "intimate snapshots into a moment in time that cannot be recreated." Many things go into a live performance, sometimes things that didn't exist during a recording session, so the effects are always interesting, varied, and unique. This record of performances, I feel, is one of the closest and most intimate looks at Einstürzende Neubauten.

After giving
9-15-2000, Brussels a few good listens, I might say that this is one of (if not my absolute) favorite Einstürzende Neubauten album(s). It is a live performance of the band in Brussels, Belgium (duh), and it features songs from various other EN albums. I really love this version of "Der Schacht von Babel," originally on their album Ende Neu. I highly recommend this live album to fans of the group who wish to get a closer look at the people behind the amazing music.

+ Tracks 5 and 10.

Altorių Šešėliai - Margi sakalai

Akron/Family & The Angels of Light - Akron/Family & The Angels of Light Split

2005; 12 tracks

This is a split between
The Angels of Light and Akron/Family - two very talented groups. I personally like Michael Gira performing the Angels of Lighttracks the most, but the entire album has a very southern feel, if that makes any sense.... There are moments where it feels straight out of Their Eyes Were Watching God or something. In this magical split are moments of soft, pensive, and acoustic gentleness - others of communal song and richness. There is something very special about this EP, and I feel like it might be one of the better releases from The Angels of Light. I didn't know much about Akron/Family previous to hearing this split, but their performance of the tracks here (written by Gira) is very strong and full of life. If you didn't know, The Angels of Light is a project started by Michael Gira after he disbanded Swans. Some say that this project shows a more feminine side of Gira that you couldn't very well see in Swans... in any case, I love The Angels of Light and this is an awesome release by them (and Akron/Family too >.<).

Here is what Michael Gira himself had to say:

"A week after an extended US Tour and a few shows in Europe Akron/Family and I went into the studio and recorded this album straightaway. Everything was recorded live, with a few overdubs - mixed and finished in nine 8-hour days. Akron/Family is my favorite "Rock Band" in the universe (or "rock-related band" - something like that!). They generate such pure JOY, coupled with a wild sense of constant invention, that it's impossible not to get sucked into their weird world of sonic chaos, then gorgeous vocal harmonies, then march-of-the-crazed-clowns with ever-escalating psychedelic mantra crescendos, then country stomps, then genuinely touching plaintive, atmospheric songs, then extended improvisations, then into some kind of Beatles meets Beefheart backwoods midnight incantation ("Raising The Sparks" - a song that never fails to get the audience whooping like suddenly zapped and enlightened idiots) - and on and on.

Also contained on this album are 5 songs performed by me, with Akron/Family serving as (my) Angels of Light. They have an uncanny ability to step into the world of the songs I wrote (also covered here is Bob Dylan's "I Pity The Poor Immigrant²) - without imposing their own aesthetic - and lift them up to something beyond what I could have initially imagined. I've never had a better backing band, ever. I hope you enjoy this record!"

Coil - Rare Releases/EPs/Compilations/Live Albums

Here are a few of Coil's live albums, EPs, compilations, and other releases that aren't widely known about.

03 Black Action
04 An Absolute


The Anal Staircase EP

1986; 3 tracks

The Anal Staircase is a 12" single by the British group Coil, released in 1986. The single introduced Stephen Thrower as part of Coil. Thrower would then return for the album Horse Rotorvator and would remain a member for many years, his last appearance being on Stolen and Contaminated Songs in 1992. "Blood From the Air," "Ravenous," and an alternate version of "The Anal Staircase" later appeared on Horse Rotorvator.

01 The Anal Staircase (A Dionysian Remix By Rico Conning)
02 Blood From The Air
03 Ravenous

The Consequences of Raising Hell (Reconstructed)

1988; 25 tracks

The Unreleased Themes for Hellraiser is a mix of tracks originally produced as a soundtrack for the Clive Barker film, plus a number of themes written for adverts. The tracks for Hellraiser were sublimely atmospheric Gothic instrumentals, with menacing undercurrents, while the advertising jingles ranged from Satie-styled ambience to Thelonious Monk influenced be-bop.

"'Explorers, in the further reaches of experience.' That's how Hellraiser's Pinhead describes the Cenobites, 'Demons to some, angels to others.' If these demons shaped music instead of flesh, and were English, you'd have Coil. The connection between Hellraiser and this experimental electronic outfit is even closer than you think: Coil produced a soundtrack for Clive Barker's first movie that never made it to the film reels, it was deemed "too weird' by the movie company."

Q: Exactly how much stuff did they write for Hellraiser? Why wasn't it used? Clive Barker said something to the effect of "They are the only group I've heard whose records I've taken off because they made my bowels churn." Isn't that the effect he was trying to get with the film?

A: It was the motion picture studio's decision and not Clive's to the best of our knowledge.

Bam Bam - Where's Your Child?

1988; 2 tracks

I think Coil remixed these tracks in "Black Antlers (Where's Your Child?)" I'm not really sure...

01 Where's Your Child?
02 Where's Your Child? (Suck Mix)


Wrong Eye / Scope

1990; 2 tracks

"Both of the tracks appear on The Portable Altamont compilation CD and the anthology release Unnatural History III along with "Meaning What Exactly?", another track recorded around the same time."

According to "Wrong Eye" is described by Coil as being a "rough sketch" of the track "Windowpane." Coil has also stated that speculation about "Scope" being an early version of "Her Friends The Wolves" (from Stolen and Contaminated Songs) is false, and that the track was actually a "studio jam" fueled by "experimenting with MDMA".


01 Wrong Eye
02 Scope


The Wheal / Keelhauler

1990; 2 tracks

When the storm clears and the sun shines
We'll see the country beyond the garden
I was dragged here by an angel
Against my weak will the stronger dictate.

Now I stand here, I've scaled the mountain
That led from function to forms of glory.

And when our hands touched like worlds colliding
A star exploding
Then I knew that the wheel is turning.

Rust transmuted to gold and silver
By strength of true will no more resistance
Just perfection
The wheel is turning.


01 The Wheal
02 Keelhauler

Coil Live in Barcelona
June 7, 2000

2000; 6 tracks

The live performance on the second disc of the Colour Sound Oblivion collection comprises Coil's second performance from 2000, which was at Barcelona's Sonar festival. For this performance Coil again appeared clad in the fluffy mirrored costumes from the London show. Their set here repeats the pieces they had played live in the earlier Royal Festival Hall show ("Everything Keeps Dissolving," "Circulating" and "Chasms"), but adds three new songs to the setlist, including a beautiful permutation of "Amethyst Deceivers." Coil were joined by Bill Breeze for this performance, playing viola throughout the entire set, adding some astonishing aural flourishes which will be familiar to anybody who has heard his previous work with Coil on the Solstice EPs. Christopherson has managed to successfully edit together two different recordings of the concert, of quite varying visual quality, in order to present a full record of the performance that is somehow faithful to its extraordinarily intense spirit.

01 Everything Keeps Dissolving
02 Amethyst Deceivers
03 Circulating
04 The Universe Is A Haunted House
05 Blue Chasms
06 Elves


Coil Presents Time Machines
April 2, 2000

2000; 3 tracks

A recording of Coil's live performance as Time Machines at the Royal Festival Hall in London on April 2, 2000. Available as a bonus disc with the mail order copies of "Musick To Play In The Dark Vol. 2", this was later re-issued as disc 1 of Live One.

01 Everything Keeps Dissolving
02 Circulating
03 Chasms


Constant Shallowness Leads to Evil

2000; 23 tracks

More info here.

"This new album by Coil deals with the threat of lavishness and responds with noise. It's trial by musick. This intense density of energetic anger explores areas that Coil have threatened to open out into in the past, but rarely have pursued with such hallucinatory ferocity. 6 new pieces still fresh with blood and electronics.

It is released to coincide with Coil's 2nd Royal Festival Hall concert this year; an event which Coil are calling "Persistence Is All." Points of reference? Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, Can, LaMonte Young, Flipper, Butthole Surfers, Supermarket Sweep. Composed & arranged by John Balance, Peter Christopherson & Thighpaulsandra."

Coil for that show were Peter Christopherson, Thighpaulsandra & Ossian Brown (ie as with Mutek, in Montreal, Balance was too sick to attend, so the show has a one-of-a kind sound, inspired in part by the venue, which at that time was a half-completed shell of an extremely futuristic arts centre).
