    State51 got back to me. They said "There's been a slight delay with the release date. Hold tight and keep checking up on the Threshold House site for updates." So, F5 it is.

    So, ever since those unreleased Coil remixes were released (all praise to Levi), I've made an effort to make my way through Coil's enitre discography and review each one, one a week, until I'm through.

    If you're interested, take a look.

    A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room

    Horse Rotorvator

    Scatology

    The Remote Viewer

    The Unreleased Themes For Hellraiser

    Time Machines

    Moon's Milk (In Four Phases)

    Love's Secret Domain

    Astral Disaster

    Musick to Play in the Dark, Vol. 1

    Queens of the Circulating Library

    Musick to Play in the Dark, Vol. 2

    Constant Shallowness Leads To Evil

    Black Antlers

    The Restitution of Decayed Intelligence

    Worship The Glitch

    The EPs of Coil

    ANS

    The Ape of Naples

    The New Backwards

    Moon's Milk In Final Phase

    The Coil Review Project - Wrap Up - new

    Thanks to everyone who suffered and grew with me.
    Especially the handful of hardcore Russians that kept pace.


    Also, if you like Nine Inch Nails, you should be into Coil, at least somewhat, it's god damn fascinating.

    Thanks again.

    You may have missed something in your scatology review. The metal clanking noises in the background of Solar Lodge remind me of the same thing in Mr. Self Destruct. NIN may very well have sampled that song. Thoughts?

    also, not to be nitpicky, but Scatology originally came out in 1984.

    I'm listening to "First Dark Ride" from the compilation "Unnatural History III" (where Coil used the name "Coil Vs. The Eskaton" (info). This track has a lot of similar sounds to The Downward Spiral (The Bottom). It was released on the same year as TDS, so they either used the same instruments or, well, sampled themselves.

    For example, 1:44 and 6:37.

    I think if Reznor had ever actually sampled directly from Coil that it would be documented, but I completely agree that a lot of his stuff sounds like them and vice versa on later Coil.

    The guitar sound in many places on broken reminds me of "penetralia", i would be absolutely amazed if that wasn't the sound he was going for

    I wasn't talking about Reznor himself sampling them. I was referring to "The Downward Spiral (The Bottom)", the Coil remix. I apologize for any confusion!

    I was referring to Senateguard's comment, but I completely see what you're saying.

    finally, some news.

    TM2 will be (finally) manifesting soon. Within months…
    All the remaining members of Coil and the executors of Jhonn and Peter’s estates are currently in discussion about how Coil things will progress. News will be posted here first.
    Happy Lunar New Year.
    T.H.

    Does anyone out there have the "Live In New York" (pretty much official) release? The VHS/DVD-R contains a soundcheck, and I'm interested as to what was played.

    i don't know about the soundcheck part, but i'm pretty sure the concert was included in the Colour Sound Oblivion box set (which i own).

    It is a dismal reflection on this reality that "the anal staircase" was never performed for a baying arena full of people

    I used to have it. It wasn't anything that wasn't played during the performance, as the shows they did around that time were the same setlist (Moscow being the other documented show). There was some backstage footage which wasn't very long and not that interesting I remember.

    For some reason I missed this first time. Bookmarked. Thanks!

    Understatement of the year.

    Coil

    Just finished @paul_guyet 's coil reviews. A great read, thanks! I'd like to follow you on the same journey. If I may briefly break to moan how hard it would be to legally acquire the whole coil back catalogue? No doubt some collectors editions will surface in the years to come but for the rest of us, put them on amazon mp3 already!

    before his death, peter was working on a way to put the entire coil discography on one "device" of some kind, be it an extremely large flash drive or a box set with a series of high-quality audio on DVDs or something along those lines. i know Time Machine 2 is the next thing happening (eventually...), but hopefully, after that, they'll go back to getting the discography out.

    and actually, for a while, you could buy MOST of their albums and EPs in high-quality digital format from the threshold house store...a few of them are still up there.

    I had read (either on Brainwashed or Threshold House) that Blu-ray was a possibility. I think the Blu-ray/DVD route or some sort of specialized external HDD would be the cheapest way to go. Those flash drive prices start to get rather exorbitant.

    i would gladly pay a large sum of money for the entire, unabridged COIL discography in high-quality audio on a blu-ray (or two).

    Same here. I had a good portion of their discography until 2007 when my CD case was stolen and then my ancient EMachines computer crashed and burned.

    I'll be honest; I downloaded a massive goddamned torrent from Pirate Bay in order to do the review project, but, since then, I have acquired The Remote Viewer on CD as well as Live 3, Time Machines and ANS, plus How To Destroy Angels and Horse Rotorvator on vinyl. If I had...oh, roughly $50,000 I could, potentially, finish my collection of Coil's complete discography in as long as it would take to make some absurdly bad choices on various record houses.
    I'd buy that Blu Ray in a heartbeat though...

    the threshold house site is still down, not sure what that means for the (supposedly) impending release of Time Machines 2.

    currently watching disc 10 of colour, sound, oblivion (live at mutek, 2003), and it's interesting to see just peter & thighpaulsandra. as much as i love john & his insane stage presence, it's kind of nice to just have some instrumental music to focus on.

    I've got all the major releases on CD as I started buying them around 2000 so the prices weren't too bad, though at the time it wasn't cheap. I remember paying around $30 for MTPITD at my local shop on import. At the time, I wasn't really into vinyl (aside from collecting the NIN stuff), but I got MTPITD v2 for probably $75. More recently, I've been coming across Coil vinyl in local shops for decent prices. I picked up original pressings of Scatology and Gold is the Metal, some of the Wax Trax singles. The only things I ever sold of my Coil collection was the Russian best of CD's and the NYC Official VHS and CD (kicking myself a little on that one). I don't think I'll ever sell this stuff, even at todays prices.

    There's a Coil group on Facebook where people mostly post video links and such. There was some discussion a month or so with Jon Whitney from Brainwashed where he had some letters that Sleazy had written him. The gist of it was that Peter had given him permission to oversee the release of the Coil catalog on CD (and later vinyl) in deluxe editions of 3 or 4 CD's. Think Love's Secret Domain, Stolen and Contaminated Songs, The Snow and Windowpane in one release, basically each era per release. Peter had sent him a lot of files to go through. Some fans were arguing over whether or not it was legal, but it seemed that Peter was on board with this idea before his death and was planning on working with Jon and Brainwashed to release the back catalog. Jon is planning on going ahead with that (at least at the time of that discussion a few months ago). Personally I think it's a good thing. There seems to be a lot of vinyl bootlegs popping up recently, so there is demand. As long as he's being proper with the money going to the right people who are now the rights holders, I think it would be a good thing to have the Coil catalog available again. I'd buy the releases again even though I own most of the stuff already.

    I recently sat down with Danny Hyde and talked about his work with Coil and Nine Inch Nails plus some of his upcoming projects.

    Awesome guy.

    Enjoy.

    yeah, i posted about it the day it went down. the greedbag threshold house site is still working, though i don't know who's actually handling any orders.

    i'd say check brainwashed for any news, for the time being.
