coil is the worst band i have ever heard. there not even music there just some random noises put together to sound like shit. i bet there shows are just for people who are on acid....and i bet they wouldnt even like it. they suck. there a joke. i saw there cd at the store and it was 20 bucks. what a rip off. i could make a better band on fruityloops and sell it and people would like it better.

This band has been into experimental music (amongst other experimental ways of living) for more than 20 years ! I guess longer than most of these kids playing with fruityrubbish. ALSO. Bands like Coil gave electronic music - and I mean both software and hardware side - such a bust.They picked up some very original sounds and noises from analog equipment aeons ago...not soundblaster and Rebirth ...
If you want to know them...just listen to what they've been doing in the last 3 years. Way above ANY ambient or cheap intellectual glitch stuff: MUSICK TO PLAY IN THE DARK is a MUST !!!
Time to stay silent and listen.

By Blood has been Shed: Your comments about Coil are sophomoric! There is so much more about Coil than just the music on the surface. The recordings are all some of the best sounds ever. But there is really a lifestyle behind it all. Sorry you missed it. You missed out. Good Bye.

by blood blablabla... hello? I've been producing electronic music on a pro level for 15 years, and I can tell you that NOBODY can do what they do with that quality on any machine. that's for the fruityloop part. Now you should know that the bloke doing most of the music side of it (Peter Christopherson) was using home-made digital samplers on stage in 77/78, 2 years before the official creation of such instruments. They know a bit or two about sound, wich is far from being your case( fruityloop is the worse sounding software I ever seen). But this is not the point. The point is nobody crossed the line between noise and music as they do. the point is what they do, the universe they created, and themselves are truly amazing, emotional, and BEAUTYFULL. Maybe some close minded people would like better what you do, but meanwhile you are a nobody and people are paying 20 for a band they LOVE and that truly deserve it. stick your attitude up your arse and don't believe the hype.

I have been a true fan of Coil for the last 12 to 13 years. I have never been so moved by such rich and beautiful sounds that Coil produces. I will be a loyal fan for many years to come.

Pretty fuckin' cool, Coil. They're doing things that absolutely no one else is doing.
Mr. 'Fruityloops': I know that you're getting a lot of attention for your pathetic little comment.
What kind of music do YOU listen to? Huh? Tell me, please. I would like to know.
Do you listen to Gothic Techno: old guys with no eyebrows making phat dope beats on Reason in their moomy's basement(heh- Disease Factory)
Or do you not listen to anything in this 'underground' genre at all? Do you only listen to things with structure? ppthpthpthpthppp.
Nelly? Eminem? Avril? Shit? ......yeah.

Mr. Furityloop, you claim that you have been producing electronic music for 15yrs, well it seems that you haven't learned much.
You seem extremely ignorant about Coil and their style, save your comments and go back to your bubble gum "electronic music".
Coil wouldn't want you as a fan.

Fuck all you troglodyte bitches that called coil nothing short of damn refreshing. Bitches.
(by the way, mr. "blood has been shed", buy a fucking dictionary and discover the magic that is there, their, and don't forget they're).

it appears that blood has been shed makes a very poorly informed judgement.
to begin with, coil has a marvelously diverse catalogue. even an idiot can find at least one coil song they enjoy.
on top of that, coil's audio work is among the best crafted electronic music available. their work with sampling is one of the most forward thinking contributions ot music in the last 20 years.

i think coil has a uniqe sense of creativity. Their music is great, and is good to listen to at any time. Some people (Blood has been Shed) just dont appricciate modern music, and i am disgusted by those people. (Please not that this is coming from a heavy metal 13 yr. old Rock fan) And i am liking this every bit as much as i like iced earth. so do your ears a favor and give coil a listen.

I think that the thing to remember is that they are experimental. They don't follow a record companies guidelines. When you experiment, you are bound to find some concepts that don't work. In all honesty, I am a big fan, but I will be the first to admit that some of their work is almost unlistenable. But this doesn't take away from the fact that there are some true gems in there that are moving, and transcend our accepted view of "music". I don't know that I would have the spaldings to take a chance like that, but I am glad that they were willing to assume that risk.

WHERE CAN i FIND FREE SOUND FILES OF COIL MATERIAL TO LISTEN TO ON THE WEB.I FOUND WHAT APPEARED TO BE THEIR MAIN SITE, BUT DESPITE A HUGE LIST OF THEIR EXSTENSIVE BACK CATALOUGE THERE WAS NTHING.i MUST CONFESS FOR THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO BUY THERE MUSIC,OR EVEN GET AN IDEA OF WHAT ITS LIKE BY LISTENING TO IT, IT REMAINS VERY ELUSIVE.

Coil is impressive, bright, caracterial and visionnary.
Reserved to highly sensitive people, trendsetters...
Really fascinating and I'm a hugely qualitative guy, references:

What a blasphemy...
Coil is probably one of the most interesting band I've heard...
They had a real vision for things and they've influenced so many bands you wouldn't believe....
Saying youcould better with Fruity Loops shows how little you know about electronic music!!!
I have something to ask to people... does anyone know the lyrics for Where are you on music to play in the dark vol.2... you can e-mail me at eva_platinum @ hotmail.com please specify the subject when you do though...
