COIL: "SOLAR LODGE" .... and .... "PENETRALIA II" ....


Those who like to dabble into some of the more eccentric form's of contemporary music such as Industrial/Experimental of the 1980's through today would be no stranger to the magnificent work's of 3 gent's from the UK, that brought about the foundation block of the Coil .... Mr.John Balance, Mr.Peter Christopherson, and Mr.Boyd Rice .... and much thank's to these gentlemen for their contribution's and art that is as uniquely their trademark as their soul! Your work is GENIUS!

These two piece's are from a compilation CD I chose because it is a rare CD that was released in 1990, that I bought when it was first released, that compile's some of their work's from 1983 to 1986 and some previously unreleased track's at the time. The CD/Album is called "Unnatural History" .... and what a work of cross-genre industrial this is! I must say one of my all time favourite's as well. The first piece is called "The Pope held Upside Down" .... and the 2nd is "Penetralia II" .... Enjoy ........

NOTE: I had to replace "Pope Held Upside Down" video, even under it's other title "Sickness Of Snakes", and more than twice YouTube has taken it off. So I chose another classic here on February 22, 2012, to replace that as well here. The piece here is called "Solar Lodge" and Thanx to MARCELOMORA





Coil- Unnatural History- Penetralia II ... Thanx to DOSKII23

I've been listening to the local college radio stations for about 30years because I have a taste for all genres of music and they play everything. I have to be careful with the industrial stuff when I'm driving because I find it very relaxing and i wouldn't want to fall asleep.

Off topic for this post, but i've been catching up reading your newer ones and wanted to tell you I appreciate your passionate perspective and the thoughtfulness you put into them.

I'll be back, sir

I understand Ms.Winsome Dove as far as putting one to relax or sleep, I have used much industrial music for year's as "mood" music during get together's of small group's of like minded friend's and associate's for year's, much is cetainly not "party" type music, so it's therapeutic in my usage during intellectual decompression, if you will, kind of hard to explain .... yet on the other hand, some of what it has influenced and inspired in later group's did turn into party type music, especially in dance/ trance, techno, electronica, etc.

Glad you found something you liked in any of the posting's, I also try to give tip's in alot of stuff .... or at least to bring awareness if possible. I am not actually a writer, I just simply bring up topic's of the current era/ condition.

Take care Ms.Winsome Dove ....
