“Recoiled” is a rambunctious alchemy, of magikal Coil sensibilities and hi-tech home circa 90’s mixing technique, all fused in the cave-like early studios of Danny Hyde / Peter Christopherson. These were the unrestrained PRE- BIG studio- mix downs, of four songs which long time Coil admirer / collaborator Trent Reznor requested Coil to remix. Reznor sent over the original multi-tracks and DATs to Hyde / Christopherson, who independently mixed versions and then met to synch both creations, molding them into these master versions. ”Recoiled” includes a fuller, more opulent version of the track ‘Closer’, which eventually made it onto the opening credits to the movie “SE7EN“. These 5 lengthy compositions are pre-Ableton / laptop generation type priest song creations, with the use of baby alarms and numerous wires to create bespoke effects. These legendary tracks were always rumoured to exist and, only the due diligence of a dedicated NIN forum who hunted them down, are released/unleashed for your listening pleasure. 4 of the tracks were released on the download-only “Uncoiled”. A bonus, previously unheard track from the same sessions closes the album. Jhonn Balance is also manifest on this gilded constellation. Beautifully remastered for CD / vinyl. CD in digipak.
whoah! i love those two great music artists! Love's Secret Domain changed my Life as did The Fragile. Coil was even on Macro Dub Infection. And do not confuse these guys with the awesome and venerable Recoil (alan wilder) of BloodLine. Trent Reznor did a remix of Curve's Missing Link that is to die for and Toni Haliday of Curve and the guy from Nitzer Ebb and even Moby and Diamanda Galas are on Bloodline by Recoil. Recoil did some pretty creepy lyrics on some other albums but Bloodline has BB King's cousin or whatnot doing techno blues way before Moby got wind of that!
All the aforementioned artists are geniuses in my book and Moby did some killer remixes of the Recoil album too. And I think Psychic TV has some connection to Coil and there's a wicked remix album of Psychic TV that has stuff by DJ cheb i sabbah and Cevin Key of skinny puppy!
Life was good back then. I love techno industrial goodies like that. the connections are glorious.
Con-Dom by any chance?
I was a bit gutted that I couldn't make it tbh.
You didn't miss that much. Con-dom and Brut were the highlight of the night, The Grey Wolves were a bit of a let down, Sudden Infant was good, but I missed most of it as I was chatting at the bar and I missed the last two bands (Slogun and another one) as it was too cold (gig was in the beer garden).
What surprised me was the atmosphere, people talk to each other at gigs outside London, unheard of!
Haha, yeah that place is good for that but yeah, it's a bit cold for gigs in the shed.
I saw Ironfist of the Sun there last year amongst others, good stuff.
In London everyone's too busy trying to be a trendy/cool cunt.
i like trent reznor and he was inspired by them right? so why not explore that. i don't know anything about coil, where should i start?
Scatology, Horse Rotovator and Love's Secret Domain are the obvious choices, at least for starters, their output changes a fair bit along the way, and they got delightfully weird and dark ambient-ish with a lot of their later stuff. It's kinda hard to say, it depends on what you're looking for, but based on the NIN thing, I'd go with the above 3, probably in that order! If you want to go for the darker, more atmospheric stuff, Musick To Play In The Dark I + II, or How To Destroy Angels.

Sorry last bit of spam from Cold Spring but it's kind of good news, at least for a small independent darkwave/industrial/noise/extreme music label.
Evening one and all - The sheer demand for the orders on the NINE INCH NAILS / COIL album has actually taken down our website!!! We`re talking live with the host right now to expand the amount of hits our website can take, they said the hits from 1pm today had gone through the roof. More info soon, that I`ll post on my personal site (here, obviously) and Cold Spring will post on FB and Twitter.
