COIL + ZOS KIA + MARC ALMOND 'How To Destroy Angels'

Michel Faber: "Imagine how out-of-step with the dominant culture Coil were when they unveiled themselves in the Air Gallery to perform A Slow Fade To Total Transparency. Subtitled How To Destroy Angels, the music - a backing track prepared by John Balance, John Gosling and Peter Christopherson - bears only scant resemblance to the How To Destroy Angels 12" that Coil would release as their debut vinyl the following year. Instead of the meditative ritual gongs of the 12", what we hear here is a restless, queasy melange of industrial noise, its eerie whistles the perfect backdrop for Marc Almond as he recites a bitter tirade against an ex-lover".

All audio has been remastered from the original tapes, is previously unreleased, and is EXCLUSIVE to this release.

Cold Spring are proud to announce the complete recording of 'A Slow Fade To Total Transparency'. Recorded 24th August 1983, at the Air Gallery, London, UK.

Personnel for the performance - John Balance (Coil), John Gosling (Zos Kia), Marc Almond (Soft Cell) and live mix by Peter Christopherson (Coil, Throbbing Gristle).
