Conceptually abstract, Black Light District shows Coil’s old guard disregarding the pop rhythms found on previous albums and fully embracing their experimental electronic trajectory.

Recorded during the Winter of 1995/96, their assumed moniker of Black Light District reflects more on their formal avant-garde pursuits and academic interests rather than their industrial pedigree resume. Starting off with an obvious nod to John Cage with their introductory “Unprepared Piano”, the tone is prepared in exactly the same way... unpredictable. Subtle patterns of looping melancholy and malaise are placed delicately underneath ghostly electronic timbre. This album was Remastered by engineer Josh Bonati and supervised by Coil's Drew McDowall.
