Some more COIL live 2002 photos to remember Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson who passed away 4 years ago.

(Meant to post some TG Astoria 2004 photos instead but didn’t find them now. And obviously should have posted yesterday but was busy, tired & unorganised. Anyways, here you are.)


Coil - Blood from the Air


By request, some more COIL live photos from Helsinki 2002. Obviously these pics, taken with a Canon PowerShot, don’t do justice to the amazing performance. But you get the picture, no pun intended.

The setlist for fellow enthusiasts:

Sine Waves
Last Rites of Spring
Are You Shivering?
Amethyst Deceivers
A Warning From the Sun
I Don’t Want to Be the One
Bang Bang
Unearthly Red


“Cinematic” is a music review cliché, but at times there’s no more appropriate word. Loka’s Passing Place begs the branding, being as it is very, well, cinematic: often instrumental, augmented by sweeping horn arrangements, carrying moods to great effect, and giving you the choice of focusing in or simply zoning out (there’s a Family Fodder song, “Film Music,” that sums up this wallpaper effect: “Film music/It’s empty/It pleases me/Come and see”).
