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...
