Coil's first album, Scatology, was my introduction to the seminal electro-cult genius of this important band. To this day it remains the one item in their vast catalogue that I return to most frequently. I always imagine Scatology as a building standing alone in a desolate dreamscape, each track is a room bearing its own atmosphere. To listen to the album is to methodically explore each room, and to be haunted by what may have occurred there in some not too distant past. One room is lonely, another full of anguish, others are bathed in blinding light, while some remain in an impenetrable darkness. Even stranger is the fact that even after 25 years the structure remains as haunting and bleak as it ever did. This record is the place I visit in my nightmares.
