COIL - 'Astral Disaster Sessions Un/Finished Musics' LP


In Stock
Esoteric / Experimental
Record Label:

These rare recordings were recorded as part of the legendary Prescription series in the late 1990's that resulted in the album "Astral Disaster". Coil were invited to record at Sun Dial studios beneath the London Bridge Hop Exchange (originally known as Samurai studios, built and owned by Iron Maiden). In Victorian times it was an old debtors prison which had three underground levels, and still had the original chains, manacles and wrought iron doors from the old prison. This caught the attention of John Balance and he was very keen to record there. At Gary Ramon's invitation, Coil spent a number of days recording at the studio during Halloween 1998, some of which resulted in the "Astral Disaster" album. Some of the unissued material and mixes released here were omitted from that original album. It includes previously unissued mixes, and the rare version of "I Don't Want To Be The One", which was only ever included on the very rare 1999 promo CD only Prescription sampler, and the 14 minute track "Cosmic Disaster", which was the original working title of the album. The material is taken from the master tapes and remastered by Denis Blackham. Ltd x 2000 copies with insert.

Tracks: The Sea Priestess (Alternative Mix), Mothership (Short Version), The Avatars, I Don't Want To Be The One (Instrumental Version), Cosmic Disaster.
