Remembering Sleazy & Coil

Remembering Sleazy & Coil Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson was a vastly influential musician; he helped create what would become the industrial genre as part of Throbbing Gristle, and made some of the greatest music ever as a member of Coil. Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of his tragic death, and in honor of his work as well as the work of friend and bandmate Jhonn Balance (whose anniversary also happened recently) we present this mixtape celebrating their musical art as Coil. Created by NYC DJ Helen Keller and given to us by film-maker Matt Lambert (aka dieLamb, whose EB interview you can read here), it’s a celebration of two magickal men who changed the way we think about music. Stream it here.
