Cold Spring are proud to announce the long-awaited reissue of Coil’s 1992 album, for the first time, on vinyl. „Stolen & Contaminated Songs“ was recorded and produced by Coil in 1992. It is comprised of over 60 minutes of outtakes and unreleased songs, evolved during the recording sessions for their prior album, „Love’s Secret Domain“. A wealth of superb material showcasing the diversity of Coil: dark, violent, vivid and fractured, yet cohesive and beautiful. Combined with the latest studio technology and Coil’s ever-evolving production skills, „S&C Songs“ walks a fine line between tradition and innovation, continually creating semi-abstract soundscapes with a cinematic quality.
Double LP on sumptuous 180gm BRONZE vinyl, housed in a glossy 350gsm gatefold sleeve. Ltd 500 (via Cold Spring only)
„Bizarre, beautiful and experimental in nature, this CD is as varied as „LSD“, if not more. From the cool jazz of „Omlagus…“ to the bass and drum groove of „Nasa Arab“ to the classy orchestral arrangements of „The Original …“, „Who’ll Tell?“ and „Corybantic…“ to the drones of „Wrim…“ to the slow sample buildup of „Her Friends…“ … you definitely know you’re listening to Coil. „Who’ll Fall?“ may be one of the most beautifully sad pieces ever committed to tape. The track features the telephone recording of a friend of Coil’s explaining that a mutual friend had recently committed suicide… very eerie… Another must have release from Coil.“ (Brainwashed)
