So, I’m flirting with the idea of creating a Throbbing Gristle fan site, and then maybe a Coil one (figure best to start at the beginning of it all and then work forward). Brainwashed is awesome, of course, but it doesn’t collect everything that’s out there in the ether, and I think it would be really great to have everything possible all rolled up in one place. No way I can collect everything myself, so, figured I’d throw this out there and see if anyone wants to contribute/assist/whatever.
I don’t think Sion Orgôn gets nearly enough praise. He’s worked with Coil & Thighpaulsandra extensively, and is a really fantastic artist in his own right. I fell in love with him after hearing his vocals on Thighpaulsandra’s “Paralyzed”. His most recent record, “The Zsygmondy Experience”, is a real killer, and I can’t recommend it enough to any fan of Coil or similar… strangeness :)
Sifting through the Coil DVD box set (where I’ve stolen my blog name). Certainly some gems, audio wise, on the last two discs. Closest we’ll ever get to studio versions of some of that material (“What Kind Of Animal Are You?”, “Unhappy Rabbits”, “Tom’s Radio Weston”, etc.). I know they’re meant to be backing tracks only, so things are missing, but still very interesting to listen to.
