Publisher's Synopsis

Between 1983 and 2004 the legendary British experimental band Coil established themselves as shape-shifting doyens of esoteric music whose influence has grown spectacularly in the years since their untimely end. With music that could be dark, queer, and difficult, but often retained a warped pop sensibility, Coil's albums were multi-faceted repositories of esoteric knowledge, lysergic wisdom and acerbic humour. In Everything Keeps Dissolving, core members John Balance and Peter Christopherson tell Coil's story in the present-tense, and from their personal perspectives, as events unfold across their twenty-year history. Accompanied by their various collaborators, Coil describe the fertile eruption of ideas, inspirations, and stray tangents that informed their lyrical and musical visions-as well as those dead paths and castoff concepts that didn't take root. No only a worm's eye view of Coil, these interviews provide insight into the late twentieth century's evolving British cultural underground as channelled through two of its most astutely mercurial minds.
