***This is what got me interested in 'Industrial' to begin with. Thanks, Mr. Sam Ruddick! I think I was about 13 or 14 and my brother's best friend saw me listening to Slayer and all that... told me about this band called Coil who made the "scariest music" he'd ever heard. Sold! Upon searching for this I finally found it hidden away at either Borders Books or Orpheus Records in Georgetown. I didn't necessarily think it sounded all THAT scary but the tiny note in the margin of the cd sleeve flipped me out...
"The only group I've heard on disc whose records I've taken off because they made my bowels churn. - Clive Barker"
(*note: Now that I'm older and appreciate the vast musical landscape, one look at the release catalogue of the Torso label really really impresses me...)
(random info from brainwashed.com) -
Clive Barker and Coil were friends during the early 1980s and it's been frequently noted that he was inspired to write "Hellraiser" from some of the literature and art Coil used to collect. Naturally he wanted Coil to do the score but while initial reports claim their music was "too scary" for the film, the reality is closer to that of the Hollywood studio wanting their own chums to do the work.
