Spoiler - a "globally unique platform for electronic popular culture" located in Vienna, Austria - have teamed up with Subetage Records to release a series of DVDs featuring recordings of the lectures & workshops that they have been holding since last September. Included in this series is a two hour recording of COIL's appearance there on October 30th, 2002.
There is a catch, however: Each DVD is limited to a single copy which can be borrowed free of charge from the Spoiler library. Spoiler and their library can be found at Museumsplatz 1 in Vienna.

2004.6.3 Melkweg Amsterdam

2004.10.23 Dublin

The following is all I could find from the Fylkingen show:

Anarcocks have pics from some of the sets in 2002.
Any help obtaining audio files of these for either personal or posting purposes will be greatly appreciated!

Coil Live at Wiki
Coil Live at Wassonii
Coil Live at Because God Told Me To Do It

Among the official releases, those posted here and those posted at Because God Told Me To Do It, I believe the above to be the missing pieces. Holler, though, if I am incorrect. (Which I sometimes am:)

The Lepore Extrusion cd extras

excerpt from "Is Evolution Evil?:
Surgical Transformations as the New Punk Aesthetic in the 21st Century"

by Daniel McKernan:
"Our human form is becoming modified to the point of no return.
The traditional definition of form according to Webster’s Dictionary is
“the nature, structure, or essence of a thing, considered apart from its content,
color, texture, or composition.” On the other hand, Henri Bergson believed
more in the idea of formlessness: “What is real is the continual change of form:
form is only a snapshot view of a transition.” (Bergson, 302) Butler believes
that the objects of one’s desire force one to push against the boundaries
of binary sexuality."

All Parts Must Be Opened Together. Files Are Not Separated.

Coil Live "Mind Your Head" Festival: Night 2, Royal Festival Hall, London, 1 October 2002

...from Coil News at Brainwashed 2002 (Aug. 12 entry):
"Coil have been announced as being the support act at the London date on the upcoming tour by Icelandic group Sigur Rós. It will be taking place on Tuesday, October 1st at Royal Festival Hall."
...from compulsion online 2002:
"Coil have been announced as special guests to Sigur Ros at the Royal Festival Hall, London, on October 1st. On October 12th Coil will be taking part in the Megalithomania festival organized by Third Stone and Strange Attractor."

I am currently unable to find out much else regarding this show. If anyone has or knows of pics to share, I would greatly appreciate it.
192 One Track

Thanks again to SA for this. Brilliant set. Quiet-like. Bang Bang. beautiful.
...from the Megalithomania! review at Brainwashed :
"A few days after this performance(wassonii note: referring to the set on 12 October), Peter and John announced that while Coil would continue, they would no longer describe themselves as a couple."
This set is definitely of a similar emotional current as that described in the aforementioned review. Poignant at the very least. "I Don't Want To Be The One" hurts.

1. Sine Waves
2. Last Rites Of Spring
3. A Warning From The Sun
4. Ostia (The Death Of Pasolini)
5. I Don't Want To Be The One
6. Bang Bang
7. Are You Shivering?

Thanks and appreciation to Sleazy for allowing me to put these out for now.
When Colour Sound Oblivion hits, should this piece be on it, it will be removed from this location.
Until then...

Coil Live Alte Spinnerei, Glauchau 13 April 2002

This set has me going out on a limb to say that thus far, of the 2002 sets, this is the clearest recording, the finest channeling by Balance as well as his rapport with the audience and the sounds being generated/created within and around by all members of Coil. Moving on many levels.
Let me know what you think. (Not bad for an audience recording.-)
Caveat: First track doesn't kick in until after :52

13 April 2002
Set List:
Remote Introduction
Amethyst Deceivers
A Cold Cell
Paranoid Inlay
Sick Mirrors

Photos used without permission are from club debil . Please check the site as there are other pics from this set.
As always, a gracious thank you to F for access to this wonderful set and Sleazy for permission.
As you should know by now, should this be included in Colour Sound Oblivion, I will pull it from this blog. Until then, tho...

Coil Live Thessaloniki 5 October 2002 Video

Available on CSO

Now then, before you get all excited, I loaded this through Rapidshare, so there are many files involved. That's how it is.
This is the show that can be found at Youtube in parts

although I think this a better quality, I am not objective. Definitely for the completist whom does not currently have it.
As with the audio files, when Colour Sound Oblivion is officially announced, should this set be a part, it will be removed.

These pics are from the massimo and pierce anarcocks site and are used without permission, but there are several more of this set at their site, and more from others in this incarnation of Coil Live.

As with the other live Coil, all thanks to F for access and Sleazy for permission.
Persistance is All.

Sine Waves (I Am Angie Bowie)
Last Rites Of Spring
Are You Shivering?
Amethyst Deceivers
A Warning From The Sun
Untitled (Never Turn The Lights On In A Dark Room)
Ostia (Death Of Pasolini)
I Don't Want To Be The One
BangBang (absent from this recording)
Captain Bart Welcomes You Aboard Flight 23 (Because God Told Me To Do It)

Coil Live Paradiso, Amsterdam-NL (01 June 2001)

This set is part of the Dutch Radio 4 Supplements (disc 4, to be exact), but this entry has the tracks separated, so I don't feel too badly posting this show for the sake of completeness.
I can't find from whence I culled the pic. Will make proper note once I locate it.
Thank you to F for access and Sleazy for permission. Please know that this will be removed if part of Colour Sound Oblivion. Until then, have enjoy.)
Higher Beings Command
Amethyst Deceivers
What Animal Are You?
Blood From The Air (Jeez this is an eerie version)
I Am The Green Child
Constant Shallowness Leads To Evil
And as a side note:
Coil Live 12 April 2002 Volksbühne Berlin is a set I do not have as audio.
What I have found, though, is its entry at Youtube
From that Berlin set(and a thanks to SineWaves23 for uploading it, wherever/whomever they may be. I'm just sorry I am only now seeing it):

Selvaggina, Go Back Into The Woods

Selvaggina: Wild animals hunted for food, more notably larger game.

The Gimp - Sometimes
Sex with Sun Ra
All the Pretty Little Horses
Tattooed Man
Teenage Lightning
Black Antlers
Bang Bang
Amethyst Deceivers

Personnel: Peter Christopherson, John Balance, Thighpaulsandra, Tom Edwards (I seek second opinion on this as the Mason review is the only current source.) on marimba

A great, cohesive set. Beautiful all the way around. As with my previous post of an audience recording of this set , I urge you to give a listen to both to know what the difference will be between the other archival recordings here on this blog and what will be part of the Colour Sound Oblivion set. A must if you haven't yet heard it.
A surprisingly good review from Billboard(James Mason)
Selvaggina at Brainwashed
Selvaggina at Wiki
and at Discogs
here at 192 least until CSO arrives/is announced (Thank you to Sleazy for allowing me to put the live stuff out for now. This used to be offered as DL from ThresholdHouse, but isn't any longer. Should that change or the aforementioned CSO, this will be removed. Mille Grazie.)

Nurse With Wound

Some viddy Some more viddy of this show

You know, I meant to take a better listen to this set to be more accurate on it's tracklisting. Unfortunately I didn't and the kind soul who gave me the opportunity to even hear this fantastic set either didn't note it or I misplaced the information (morelike the latter). My apologies. I've kind of guessed at a couple, but let me know what you think/know. Regardless, excellent quality, for sure. Audience. Other infos contained within. Please read the disclaimer below and within and please heed. Otherwise, enjoy. I have.

If this has been posted elsewhere, I don't mean to duplicate, so please advise. I hadn't seen it when searching. Anyway, carry on:)

1.Nurse With Wound - Intro
2.Nurse With Wound feat. David Tibet (I think "Dead Side Of The Moon", but that's only because of the lyric
3.Nurse With Wound
4.Nurse With Wound
5. Nurse With Wound
6. Nurse With Wound feat. David Tibet (Two Shaves And A Shine, I think)
