Coil have made their Colour Sound Oblivion 14 DVD Box Set Pre-Order edition available to order exclusively through the Threshold House Greedbag Store. Including the following, it’s quite possibly the best thing we have ever seen. No it is. We’re sure of it.
An individually numbered disc (similar to those worn by dancers in go-go bars).
Four hand-made cloth bags in the same (or similar) fabric Coil’s costumes were made from, each containing the dvds of concerts where those costumes were worn… FLUFFY, GLOWING, REFLECTIVE (mirrored) and SHROUDED.
The dvd collection itself, features 14 show dvds (of which the first two, being shorter and without extras, are very rare half-silvered dvds) plus a two dvd “COIL RECONSTRUCTION KIT” containing more than 4 hours of projection animations and processed footage PLUS the accompanying backing-tracks to all the songs in question, Karaoke-style (though without super-imposed lyrics). These are here released under a Creative Commons License, by which you are free to sample, re-loop and otherwise, “molest” or “interfere” with Coil’s music and animations to your hearts content (as long as its not for commercial gain).
a Collection of more than 100 postcards, 6″ × 4″ to fit the Patron’s Edition frame, in a velour bag. These pictures (almost all unseen till now) taken by Coil or our friends, are a very personal record of life on the road with Coil… Fortunately there is not a guitar to be seen, though there may be one picture of a a tour bus!
Lastly Colour Sound Oblivion also contains a couple of small printed pamphlets or booklets – One containing Sleazy’s thoughts, anecdotes, reflections on the being part of Coil Live, and thanks to everyone he can remember – The other a facsimile of the Order of Service of Geff’s (Jhonn Balance’s) Funeral, which took place a month pretty much to the day, after the last show in this Collection… This latter will only be included in the Patron’s and Pre-Order Editions.
