Some Head

"4th February, 1999
The musickian known as THIGHPAULSANDRA has joined COIL as a permanent member as of today. Thighpaulsandra is a member of SPIRITUALISED and QUEEN ELIZABETH (with Julian Cope), as well as working with Jodie Evans of ANAL. He is a classically trained musician who has made a long and deep study of the work of Stockhausen. He is a wonderful bright Pagan STAR in his own rite and I are very happy he accepted my invitation. Now we are 5 sided. Pentagrammatical. Complete. "

Tracks: Black Nurse, Tudor Fruits

Eskaton 21 CD EP1000 copies
Released March 1st, 2000.
From the release notes: "This CD was initially sold at the Royal Festival Hall event with Coil and is now being made available to the general public. Some Head consists of two pieces of music: 'Black Nurse' & 'Tudor Fruits'. Full-time Coil member Thighpaulsandra takes care of synthesisers/piano/horn/vocals and is joined by Coil's John Balance on vocals/text and Hans Jürgen Raüsch takes care of enforcement/retractors. The CD is housed in a sheer Black c-shell package and comes with a sticker on the front. Thighpaulsandra plays keyboards for Spiritualised and Julian Cope. "


"Born June 19th in Pontypridd, Wales as Timothy Lewis to a family of musicians. His grandfather being a conductor and mother, Dorothy Lewis an opera singer. He was frequently taken to classical concerts from an early age and studied French horn, church organ and piano. He was a member of the cathedral choir at Cathedral School in Llandaff, Wales as well as Christ College, Brecon, Wales. "

This is the first proper appearance of Thighpaulsandra. After meeting him at a concert in 1997 JBalance struck up a musical alliance that would take Coil to new heights. (And get him out of Spiritualised:)

2 tracks of electronic bliss. A precursor to "I, Thighpaulsandra"
