"All kinds of chemicals have been present, but not just illegal ones. There's also various neurotropics - 'smart' drugs which were developed by the military for increasing internal linkperception, intuition, internal linkmemory, and capabilities on an intellectual level. Cognitive enhancers, they're called. We try to use whatever's at our disposal to reduce the barriers between different levels of internal linkreality."

_Love's Secret Domain_ on Wax Trax (1991)

Coil - Love's Secret Domain

Band Members: John Balance (J) Stephen Thrower (T) Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson (S)

What are the underlying ideas behind the LP (_Love's Secret Domain_)?

Nikola Tesla Lightning Strikes

J: internal linkElectricity and Drugs. Energies. We started off with the LP three years ago and had the idea of doing a sort of decadent early electronics cabaret album, like internal linkTesla - the inventor, would have done in Berlin. A weird idea. It started like that and internal linkevolved.

You have always had interest in rituals and weird science, which for them is partly a spectator sport and partly inspirational. "Eskatology is the study of the end of the world. It sort of ties in with internal linkTerence McKenna and his internal link2012 theory.

Terence McKenna - the force will be with you...always

Instead of the Big Bang being the beginning of history, we are in fact being hurled toward an object or something at the end of history, and that end of history will be 2012. I don't take that may drugs anymore, but I feel there is something going on. Both me and Drew agree with this, that psychic abilities and coincidences are increasing exponentially, or whatever one of those upward going curves is. You feel that internal linktime is overlapping at times, we're actually reaching a spiral point.  Things are getting weirder, people are having weirder internal linkdreams, there's more and more coincidences. It's escalating to the Eskaton."

Having been together for twelve years, and working in the "music industry" for longer they come across a lot of different musics and perspectives. Influences are not noticeable in the records, but are they influenced by others and who? Musically, Atom Heart. I don't know, when people ask that, it doesn't influence me."

"internal linkEnthusiasm as opposed to influence."

A coil is a series of internal linkloops. A coil made of rigid materials can be fashioned in a spiral or helical shape; see spiral staircase. Flexible materials like internal linkwire, rope, hose, or cable can also be coiled into empty loops, or wound around a central internal linkdrum or spindle.

In electrical engineering, an induction coil is formed when a metal wire is coiled around a core to create an electronic inductor. Polyphase coils are coil systems with multiple phases.

Coil is a group that has worked in several electronic music styles including: industrial, noise, internal linkambient and experimental musics and which internal linkintentionally tries to stay away from any particular genre of music. The band was formed by John Balance (sometimes credited as Jhon Balance) and Peter Christopherson out of the demise of internal linkPsychic TV, an earlier industrial band.

Coil can only be described as a very eccentric group, sometimes producing only as many as 99 copies of an album, allowing only those who are truly dedicated to the band to seek them out, due to the high prices (caused by high demand). Some critics have accused Coil and its record company of price gouging. As of 2003, Coil has been re-releasing many rare works, mostly remixed, into general circulation.

Coil also has an interesting habit of separating their works into many side-projects, publishing music under different names when it is created using different styles. Some of their side-names are ELpH, Zos Kia, The Eskaton, Black Light District, Time Machines, and one of their newer members, Thighpaulsandra, produces music on his own as well. They contributed music to two of Derek Jarman's films, Blue and The Angelic Conversation.
