UPDATE: We have removed the links as it appeared that this was a bootleg release.
The recordings on “Love’s Secret Demise” were initially titled “The Side Effects of Life”, which was a working title for Coil’s legendary album “Love’s Secret Domain”.
The music presented here are demos / mixes of material that was later released as the “Love’s Secret Domain” album and includes parts of the “Wrong Eye/Scope” 7″-single. The original cassette (only a handful are known to exist) was sent to WaxTrax! records in 1989 ahead of the planned future release of “Love’s Secret Domain” on the label.
The track ‘Fidget’ was subsequently released on the “WaxTrax!Sampler#2” cassette in 1989. The album was finally released by Torso (Europe) and Wax Trax! (USA) in 1991. These recordings and mixes are incredibly rare, and demonstrate Coil working towards the final pieces that would make up “Love’s Secret Domain”.
Here’s a 2006 edit of the title track.
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.
