COIL ~ Contaminated Apples: 1986-1991 Appendices
{An Unauthorised Collection}

14 years ago today, John Balance, the lead singer and visionary behind one of the best bands of all time, tragically passed away. Every year, several Coil fans and I like to honor him. 1 year ago today, Phil Barrington, Stefan Beiersmann, and myself decided to launch Live Coil Archive to do just that. It has been an eventful, wonderful year for us and we hope it has been for you too.

Listening to the earlier Coil albums, John clearly never felt the need to sing a vocal to every single track they wrote. Instrumentals dominate many albums, especially "Stolen and Contaminated Songs" and the mid-90s releases pre-"Backwards." When the first 8 T-ARCH CDs came out and most tracks included were early instrumental demos, with some exceptions like "Tiny Birds," "Sodoma Atomicus," and "Meet Murder My Angel," that essentially confirmed in my mind that John didn't record very many vocal demo takes - certainly almost none the band felt like keeping. Pleasantly surprisingly, it turns out this isn't exactly true.

When a small handful of anonymous donors very kindly gave LCA a collection of unreleased studio demos and outtakes for us to use in creative projects, which over the past year we have made into "Scatology Sessions," "Hidden Hydrology," "Wormsongs," and now "Contaminated Apples," I spent a great deal of time mulling over and organizing the tracks we were given. I found a couple of alternate vocal versions and mixes among the lot which were mysteriously not included on T-ARCH. Given the abundance of instrumental demo material already out there for the band, especially from Scatology, Horse Rotorvator, and Love's Secret Domain, I felt obliged to provide this arguably more valuable vocal material to the public ear.

So, I broached the idea of making such a compilation to Phil, and we worked it out. He and I discussed the title of the compilation for some time. The original title was just "1986-1991 Appendices," then Phil came up with "Stolen Apples" as a reference to William Blake's "The Poison Tree" poem and the abstract concept of "stealing human heads." This made me think of the Coil album title "Stolen and Contaminated Songs," and you can fill in the blanks from there.

The humble aim of this curation is just to make as satisfying and listenable an 'album-like experience' documenting the creative processes leading up to the finalization of our favorite Coil studio songs. For as long as I have been a part of the Coil community, it has been made abundantly clear to me that this is the sort of thing most Coil fans want to hear - they feel a greater sense of personal attachment to the band when provided material which humanizes the band. These kinds of tracks show the blood, sweat, and tears John, Peter, Stephen, and everyone else put into making these songs, to providing the listener with as much emotionally resonant music as possible. It is our sincere belief that this creative process makes these tracks worthy for you to enjoy.

Technically, this compilation contains mostly alternate mixes and vocal demos for Horse Rotorvator material, but I also found a couple tracks from the Hellraiser and Love's Secret Domain-eras that I felt were equally as worthy. The Hellraiser and "Penetralia" tracks are the only instrumental songs, here - everything else has vocals.

The collection can be downloaded (or streamed via the free 'Internet Archive Companion' App - the player on the webpage itself duplicates the tracklist as it reads both MP3s and FLACs for the same songs) here;

1. Slur (Demo Vocals) 0:00
2. Ostia (Demo Vocal) 3:14
3. Penetralia (Early Instrumental) 9:24
4. Circles of Mania (Alternate Mix) 12:27

9. No New World (Alternate Version) 32:39
10. Titan Arch (Alternate Mix) 35:24

13. Penetralia (T2 + T3 Remix 2) 46:36

Includes a 22-page 'CD booklet' pdf written by myself and Phil Barrington, including background information, source notes, track-by-track notes, and transcribed song lyrics.
