We herewith complete the induction of the mighty Coil into the BOMBAST Hall of Legends. Lady Catharsis even informs me that she enjoyed one of their songs tonight. I told you this was the most beautiful single of the bunch, did I not? As we steadily approach normalcy, we also throw in a host of new tunes and take care of some long-unfinished business.
It seems like we just talked, and I guess we did. There's a sizable backlog of BOMBAST programs, and I'm working my way through them as best I can. I believe this post gets you caught up on the "regularly scheduled" episodes, with the "impromptu" or "fill-in" episodes to come--Cthulu willing, we'll have them all posted by the end of the month.
This episode is a weird, dynamic set. I wouldn't necessarily say it's one of the "best," but it does contain many textures, moods, and energies, which was the original "dream." It's always a strange night when Coil is playing--what would life be without strange nights?

next time: depends on what we're talking about. If it's a podcast, it's overflow night. If it's a live show, it's a dub revival and a record Pitchfork doesn't like, as if that's not a merit badge. Enjoy the music! --kid catharsis
