Repost: Coil Live Wave-Gotik-Treffen 31 May 2004

Note: all images from Kleiner Tod
used without permission, but full credit for some of the finer photo documentation found so far of Coil shows able to be posted here.

Now then, it is with GREAT pleasure that I am able to offer here this set from 31 May 2004 at Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig, Germany.

Coil Live at Wiki has this to say about the 2004 incarnation of Coil:
"In 2004 Coil embarked on their final tour titled "Even An Evil Fatigue"."

I was made aware of this set as torrent in an Anonymous comment left on my post requesting help filling out the Live incarnations of Coil. Well bless my soul if this isn't one hell of an amazing set. Per the original torrent poster's request, I have not converted these to a lossy format, but apple lossless. Sounds TASTY in the ipod, my friends.

"January 19th, 2004
Coil will be performing at the Wave Gotik Treffen festival which takes place in Leipzig, Germany on May 28th to 31st, 2004. Other bands confirmed to appear include Clan of Xymox, Covenant and Suicide Commando, with many more to be announced."


Compare this to the Paris set(2004-05-23). I am right now. Very different energies between the shows. I'd love to hear the continuity of this tour if someone knows of the Milkweg show's existence(2004-06-03). For now, though, do your own comparison. I like the acoustic qualities of the room as translated in this recording. Very full. Broccoli. mmm mmm good. Some audience chatter, but not too bad. "At least they have a shower":) Recording ends after last song. I don't know if there was some manner of John saying thank you or such, but I should imagine he did.
Apple Lossless.


Loaded as individual tracks and available in each title of the tracklisting. If you have any issues, please advise. There was much funkiness with the power over the 2 days it took me to upload this around outages. Cheers!

Coil on Russian Television 2001

Approximately 90 minutes in length.
First half is clips from the Moscow gig interspersed with interview clips with Sleazy, Jhonn, and Thighpaulsandra and Coil vid clips (LSD and Windowpane).
Second half is Sleazy and Jhonn with an interviewer discussing Coil and their favourite videos.
(Diamanda Galas Double-Barreled Prayer
Coil Tainted Love
Residents The Third Reich and Roll
Nine Inch Nails Perfect Drug
Coil Love's Secret Domain)
All conversation is overdubbed in Russian.
A lovely little archival piece, for sure. Much thanks to F for the access.

According to Russian resources the ANS is considered the first electronic synthesizer in the world, technically following the 'Varifon' built by Sholpo back in the early 30's (which was an earlier attempt at conversion of optical information into sound). The various sound pieces in the Coil - ANS boxset are the work of Jhonn Balance solo, Jhonn Balance and Ossian Brown, Peter Christopherson solo, Thighpaulsandra solo, Ivan Pavlov solo and Jhonn Balance and Ivan Pavlov together. This release contains a bonus DVD with animations made by Peter Cristopherson.

This is currently unavailable in any format from ThresholdHouse. Should that change, I will remove this post.

A Repost: Astral Disaster LP (Prescription Edition)

My apologies for nothing new in some time. Infrequent updates and vids, but musickally, nada.
Unfortunately in the interim, some of my links have gone to the wayside. Rapidshare. Love em and hate em.
With that in mind, here is a re-up of the vinyl edition of Coil's "Astral Disaster"
The original post and infos would be here.
Such a good album in both incarnations.

As before, links in pics.
