Out in a few weeks from now is the re-release of the legendary Coil album “The Plastic Spider Thing”, originally released by Threshold House via World Serpent in August 2002.

The re-release comes out on double black vinyl, double transparent vinyl and as a CD+DVD set.

This album, featuring Coil’s music literally remixed and re-arranged in ritual form to serve as the soundtrack to the Black Sun Productions extreme performance art spectacle entitled “The Plastic Spider Thing”, following the performers’ (among whom was Jhon Balance himself) every single move.

You can expect a mix of synths, drones, and psychedelic textures. A release that all hardcore Coil fans have long been waiting for!

Included with the CD+DVD set is a collection of Black Sun Productions videos documenting the history of Black Sun Productions and it’s strong ties with Coil. The DVD features rare clips and backstage footage (Coil Live Gigs) with both Peter Christopherson and Jhon Balance, as well as video manipulations.

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.
