Horse Rotorvator


Force & Form

Coil’s sense of disruption, reinterpretation and resistance to a dominant culture was in full effect on Horse Rotorvator, covering everything from snarling contempt and (rather like the previous album) scatology to vivid visions of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s death and a looming apocalypse. With guest appearances by J. G. Thirlwell, Marc Almond and Billy McGee, the music touches many areas in turn, from almost folkish contemplation to twisted cabaret and rumbling noise, a multifaceted journey which John Balance sings and chants as if in a vision.
