A sincere thank you to SA for this, as 2002 was a fine year for Coil Musicks
and to Sleazy for permission.
As always, should this set be a part of CSO, I will pull it. Until then, please enjoy!

The Gimp (Sometimes)
Sex With Sun Ra
All The Pretty Little Horses
Tattooed Man (The Dark Age Of Love)
Teenage Lightning (10th Anniversary)
I Can't Get A Word In (edgeways)

Only 5 or so minutes of last song. I didn't record it, I am just thankful to even hear it.
So, thank you F for access and Sleazy for permission.
A strange and wondrous set. I am very interested to hear what Sleazy does with this one.
Should this set be included in Colour Sound Oblivion, I will remove it from this site. Until then...
This set has me going out on a limb to say that thus far, of the 2002 sets, this is the clearest recording, the finest channeling by Balance as well as his rapport with the audience and the sounds being generated/created within and around by all members of Coil. Moving on many levels.
Let me know what you think. (Not bad for an audience recording.-)
Caveat: First track doesn't kick in until after :52
Photos used without permission are from club debil . Please check the site as there are other pics from this set.
Now then, before you get all excited, I loaded this through Rapidshare, so there are many files involved. That's how it is.
This is the show that can be found at Youtube in parts
although I think this a better quality, I am not objective. Definitely for the completist whom does not currently have it.
As with the audio files, when Colour Sound Oblivion is officially announced, should this set be a part, it will be removed.
These pics are from the massimo and pierce anarcocks site and are used without permission, but there are several more of this set at their site, and more from others in this incarnation of Coil Live.
Selvaggina: Wild animals hunted for food, more notably larger game.
The Gimp - Sometimes
Sex with Sun Ra
All the Pretty Little Horses
Personnel: Peter Christopherson, John Balance, Thighpaulsandra, Tom Edwards (I seek second opinion on this as the Mason review is the only current source.) on marimba
A great, cohesive set. Beautiful all the way around. As with my previous post of an audience recording of this set , I urge you to give a listen to both to know what the difference will be between the other archival recordings here on this blog and what will be part of the Colour Sound Oblivion set. A must if you haven't yet heard it.
A surprisingly good review from Billboard(James Mason)

...at least until CSO arrives/is announced (Thank you to Sleazy for allowing me to put the live stuff out for now. This used to be offered as DL from ThresholdHouse, but isn't any longer. Should that change or the aforementioned CSO, this will be removed. Mille Grazie.)

For this set, the musts are the last three tracks in particular. A very moving yet meditative take on Sick Mirrors leading it's way toward a spectacular finish in Backwards. A very cleanly recorded set, yielding one of the finer versions of A Cold Cell.
Thanks as always to F for access and to Sleazy for permission to post.
Should any of this set be included in Colour Sound Oblivion, I shall pull it from the blog.
Recorded 30 March 2002
Artooz-Festival (and it's creators;)
John Lennon Municipal Centre
Remote Viewing 2
A Cold Cell
An aurally stunning performance, the recording quality doesn't do the work justice, though at this point, I'm simply grateful.
Ooo-wee this would be a potent addition to CSO if 'twere all cleaned up.
Thank you thank you F and Sleazy for the access to these fantastic archives and permission to share.
Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, this one will be on Colour Sound Oblivion and as per my M.O. if so, I will pull it from this blog.
Until then, though, it is my pleasure and priviledge to share this outstanding set, brief though it may be.
