Well the WATMM server wiped out the prior Coil thread so we may as well have a new one for people like myself who like to ramble about Coil until the proverbial cows come home. I'm very much looking forward to getting Colour Sound Oblivion in the mail. It'll be nice to see so elaborate a package in the "flesh", so to speak, as we may have something similar to look forward to in the coming years, as Sleaz has mentioned the possibility of issuing the entire Coil catalog on Blu-Ray with "many things that could be exclusive to that set". He says he would only do this if Blu-Ray is established as a standard medium for audio playback, which may or may not be very likely. I'd imagine it could happen now that HD DVD has fallen by the wayside but only time will tell. As mentioned in my post elsewhere in the forum, the most recent Coil news aside from CSO preorders having closed and the standard edition being imminently available is that Sleaz is getting his plans together for Time Machines II/Time Machines Legacy/whatever the hell he decides to call it. This is likely to be years away as he's getting custom equipment made to record this with. So we at least have that to look forward to. Cyclobe (Ossian Brown and Stephen Thrower) are also about to issue their new album. I'm not sure if any of you have heard them but they're truly wonderful and very much as dark and mysterious sounding as Coil were. They're also very much an instrumental project so those of you who were less inclined to appreciate Coil when Balance was ranting over the top will like this stuff very much. Thighpaulandra recently issued a new record, The Clisto EP, which I haven't heard yet but his last one (The Lepore Extrusion) was bloody awesome so it should be interesting. Sleazy's SoiSong project with CoH is on hiatus for the year but the two of them will both be issuing solo records entitled SoiSong... Will be interesting indeed. Again, I'm not sure how many of you heard SoiSong but they're fucking fantastic, very alien sounding and using a lot of artificially generated sounds that can be quite irritating to certain listeners. I fucking love it though. And lastly, The Threshold HouseBoys Choir are set to release another CD/DVD package at some point this year utilizing the works in progress that comprised the self titled Amulet Edition release with a movie that Sleaz was making about Thai temple tattooing. That record was absolutely wonderful as it was, and in that form it was work in progress so the finished release should be amazing.
