Coil founder John Balance (a.k.a. Jhonn Balance) was killed on Saturday in an accident at his home. He was 42.
Balance founded Coil in 1983 as a solo Psychic TV side project; Peter Christopherson joined in 1984. They were scheduled to appear next month at ATP Camber Sands along with LFO, Aphex Twin, Throbbing Gristle and the Fall, among others. A huge loss for the industrial/experimental/electronic music community.
It's 1:00 a.m. and I really need to sleep. I did a lot of walking today and a lot of standing this evening. But I thought about making some notes about this show so I could write my review tomorrow (or, let's be honest, two weeks from now)
