Coil - Stolen & Contaminated Songs

Available:Out of Stock

    In 1992, Coil followed up their critically acclaimed '91 album "Love's Secret Domain" with a set of outtakes, unreleased songs and alternate versions recorded during the same sessions. Of course, little they produced in that period was ever less than inspired, and "Stolen and Contaminated Songs" was a far better set than its "odds and ends" nature suggested it would be - as this timely reissue proves. Flitting between string-drenched neo-classical, exotic Indian soundscapes, otherworldly ambient-jazz, Cabaret Voltaire style industrial-electro, contemporaneous ambient house dreaminess, beat-free soundscapes and weird electronic experiments, it's a kaleidoscopic and hugely entertaining affair that's well worth a place in your collection.
