A Prison Of Measured Time (12")

Label: Old Europa Cafe

Format: EP

Genre: Electronic

In stock

An official release of previously unreleased material from Coil, strewn with parts that would eventually come together into ‘Backwards’

**Recorded at Creek house, Swanyard and Bushmead studio in 1995-1998.  Limited edition of 500 handnumbered copies. The 500 copies include unknown number of copies on white vinyl, blue vinyl or blue vinyl with white spots / white shadows** In 1995 and before I was employed to take tracks home and manipulate the streams to create new content. The way I did this was a process I called “Rate/Stretch, I won’t go into details, but it was very successful at creating whole new content. From these experiments came the “scorn“ dreamspace mix, and much of Black Light District. After we came back from New Orleans working on the “Backwards LP “at Trent Reznor’s studio, Peter Christopherson, asked me to do the same to two tracks, "Heaven’s blade" and "Wir click Wir (Copacaballa)". This was 1998 (a year and a half after we left New Orleans). I started the project, but due to misgivings at the time with the whole music business, I left, and the tracks didn’t get a release. On these tracks you wil get music unheard: John Balance vocals some of which never heard before, and the trumpet takes we recorded for Wir click Wir, but never had the facility to use. - Danny Hyde
