Prescription, Amsterdam, Shirt (chagrin:(

Well, I had a request and usually I am unable to fufill such things, but I am able to offer due to the sublime kindness of a most gracious fellow lover of Coil (and double thanks, as you'll see) the Prescription edition of Astral Disaster. Further back in these here postings is the Thresholdhouse edition. ...or so I thought.
I now know for 100% that the edition posted previously at wassonii (as Sleepless from Latvia tried to tell me in the comments) is indeed the Acme/Prescription edition. I'll post the recent acquisition for a little bit here (192)and will update the erroneous post. As always, I mean well, I lay claim to being a fan, but not necessarily to being the most knowledgable fan. Och well, at least there's a lesson learned. Ummm, I guess I'll be needing to hear the TH edition, then, as that's what I thought I was hearing:) Anyway, good infos follow.
This will likely come back into print at some point, so when that happens, I will pull it.
Please read the disclaimer. Grazie.
Oh yes. SOISONG info follows....

The following infos from the Sugar Factory site (follow link in above pic):
"VAL DENHAM feat. OLI NOVADNIEKS ./ dj ./SOISONG ./ live ./
The evening will start of with a new edition of the illustrious Darkness is Enlightning, presenting cutting edge avant garde acts to the Sugar Factory. With earlier editions inviting Psycic TV and Throbbing Gristle, we are very proud to bring Soisong and Val Denham to this edition.SoiSong is a new project by Peter Christopherson ( Coil;Throbbing Gristle) and IvanPavlov ( COH)The two-man show will combine Ivan's uncompromisingly-visceral computer based music with Christophersons decadent, dark and whimsical approach to artificial vocals and „South Seas2 instrumentation...The power and energy of Youth and the Russian Scientific Establishment with the filth, decay and corruption of English Maturity. SoiSong has been brewing for months in the gloomy Soi's, or alley-ways, of Bangkok, the world's most uninhibited Capitol city, where unlocked i-phones, hi-speed broadband, young brown flesh, and indeed Life itself, all come cheap.Val Denham is visual artist from Yorkshire, England. He has done work for (to name a few) Marc Almond, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, The Sword Volcano Complex, and Cyclobe. Always refreshing and unconventional, be prepared for a performance that you will remember."

Follow the link in the shirt to Soisong's blog post regarding merchandize, that shirt and the disc, including other tasty infos;-)

What's your take on the SoiSong musick... you like it?

wassonii said...

Yes, but it took awhile to grow on me. At first, I wasn't too sure about it. It's taken even longer for COH to grow on me as a solo performer, so I can't say it's unexpected. I do want to hear more from this project, though, particularly after they've been working things out live and with time.
I did read somewhere (I think it was on the list)about Pavlov's being a sterile choice for Sleazy as musical partner, or something to that effect, I do get a "cold" vibe from COH, but hell, he's from Russia. I have to say that COH's "Strings" really opened my ears up to his musicks. I really like the work on Love Uncut, but that's 2/3 of Coil on that e.p.

Man, you hit the nail on the head. I think they are an unusual pair. That could be a great thing... but so far I would say they are just "pleasant"... which, given the genre, isn't really a complement. Certainly their is potential for something good. As for COH... never cared for it Ivan's stuff. But did you hear what he did with Cosey. Absolutely amazing. Sickness Abounds has it to download if you want to check it out.

I haven't given a full listen to CoH plays Cosey, but what I have heard has made me stop and LISTEN.
