Astral Disaster Sessions Un/finished Musics Vol. 2

Lion / Prescription

limited (600 only) hand numbered cd

Released: 11th Jun 2021


These rare recordings were recorded as part of the legendary Prescription label subscription-only album series in the late 1990's that resulted in the "Astral Disaster” album.

Halloween 1998: Coil were invited to record at Sun Dial's studios beneath the London Bridge Hop Exchange — a studio first know as Samurai Studios, originally built and owned by Iron Maiden. The premises in Victorian times had been a debtors prison, with three underground levels — with the original chains, manacles and wrought iron prison doors still intact. This caught the attention of John Balance, who was very keen to record there. With Gary Ramon's help, Coil developed a number of tracks, some of which resulted in the "Astral Disaster" album. But there were other tracks recorded during those Halloween sessions, including the recordings on this very limited CD release, "Astral Disaster Sessions Un/finished Music Vol. 2.” This disc includes previously unissued mixes and alternative versions, and includes 'The Mothership,’ which was the first version of a track which was later remade and re-named during the sessions as 'The Mothership and the Fatherland.’
