In 1984 Vortex Campaign invited Coil and The New Blockaders to collaborate for what was to become the cult release “Dolbied”. It was released privately on cassette in an edition of just 50 copies. Fortunately the recordings will now be officially re-released under the title “The Melancholy Mad Tenant”.

The 6 tracks have been professionally re-mastered and in addition to the collaboration it also contains the entire Vortex Campaign archive, including two previously unreleased tracks.

This album is out soon as a vinyl 2LP edition, limited to just 380 copies worldwide. You can order your copy right here!

Here are 2 tracks from this release:

In further news the late Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson, former member of Coil, Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, is remembered by Black Mass Rising and Infinite fog Production Labels with the release of his 2004 performance at L’Étrange Festival, “The Art of Mirrors (homage to Derek Jarman)”. The release only has one track, “The Art of Mirrors” lasting 73:14 minutes.

Here’s an outtake of this live album. Orders are accepted right here, don’t miss out on this one as it is equally a limited edition release.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
