Got the Tools but Don’t Know the Rules: Transmission 409, 2018 May 23

June 5, 2018

Coil_presents_Black_Light_District_-_A_Thousand_Lights_in_a_Darkened_Room.jpg Another week and another "industrial" record is the feature. I didn't plan it this way, but certainly none of my long-term acquaintances would be surprised. I just do what I do, I guess, circumstances notwithstanding. On this night, the circumstance was a fever (I am just getting over the accompanying cold). Am I really this dedicated? No, I had to visit the station in any case, and figured I might as well do my show, as scheduled. Someone told me once that the only reason to miss a show was on account of death--your own. I'm not that dedicated.

It certainly didn't feel like it on the night, but this is a masterful program, if I say so, and I do. I can see, listening to Black Light District, why Lady Catharsis hates Coil so much, and maybe it stems from this very album. It's not for everyone. But it goes with everything. This would seem to argue against its greatness, according to my oft-cited theory. But, let's be honest: I have no theory, only good taste.
