Gift This Product…

Following a recent slew of exceptional and vitally important Coil recordings, Cold Spring dig deep into the unknown with a lavishly packaged and lovingly produced vinyl and CD pressing of one of the groups earliest entries, the 1984 C52 cassette Transparent. Produced as a split with the short-lived industrial 'super group' Zos Kia, which featured Joan D'Arc, Min, John Balance & Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson!!

Released on the now defunct Nekrophile imprint in Austria in August of 1984, Transparent has long been a firm favourite of the Coil collectors. Thirsted after for years, this split album has come close to the surface of the endless sea of reissues on a number of occasions, most notably on Coil's on Threshold House imprint as an edited edition.

The music within Transparent is the sort of dank claustrophobia that would come to haunt their early works. Yet backed up with a relinquishing austere drum machine roll that aligns it as possibly the most vivid touch point and strong link between Coil and Throbbing Gristle before them.
