about

Coil formed in a flat above a TV repair shop in 1978. They were loud, cheeky, sharp and popular – and then due to bad luck, were obliged to pause for 30 long years, after the famous ‘four banks in a weekend’ robbery of 1980 put several members of the band in prison for a very long time. Two died inside sadly, but in truth, they didn't need a keyboard player and two bass players anyway.

Thankfully, now ALL the living members are out of gaol and playing their (very) post-punk satirical, fast, chippy, busy, intelligent, attractive, leftish, charming music.

Out NOW - To celebrate their freedom, Coil has a new EP - ‘The Baby’s Coming Out’ available here for only FIVE of their lovely old British Pounds. The EP is a mix of new material, recorded live in the studio, plus a couple of tracks re-mastered from original analogue tapes, which had been buried in Phil’s garden since he went on the run in 1979.

Track Name: The Baby's Coming Out
Daddy's in the basement
With his model railway
Mummy's weekend's at an all time low.
Well it's another foggy day down here in the lounge
On the roof it looks like snow.

Yes we gotta sit on something dear
But we have to think it o-ver
Should we go into a debt like that
For a two tone leather sofa?

She's so kind
And she can read my mind.
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.
She's so kind
And she can read my mind...
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.

I'm deep in the ocean
And the waves are coming soon.
I think it's Sargasso?
Well it's a beautiful green lagoon.
Where the eels make love
In a seething mass of joy.
And Aristotle can tell by the smell
That this is a girl
And that is a boy.

She's so kind
And she can read my mind.
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.
She's so kind
And she can read my mind…
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.

Let's get it together
And leave the past behind the bar.
Let's get it together
And you can drive the getaway car.
Let's get it together for god’s sake
Or die in the act of trying.
We gotta get it together
Coz you know that I know that you know that I know you're reading my mind.

Yeah etc
Wo oh etc

To the railway station
I will take you there though I know
That you gotta another woman
I can tell coz you're in your yellow clothes.

She's so kind
And she can read my mind
She says: ‘You’re quite attractive but you ain't no friend of mine.
She's so kind
And she can read my mind.
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.


I got my legs akimbo
And the baby's coming out.
I can feel that baby breathing
I can hear that baby shout.
I don't know how it happened
It's a mystery to me.
We only did it once or was it twice
Underneath that willow tree.

She's so kind
And she can read my mind
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.
She's so kind
And she can read my mind
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.

She's so kind
And she can read my mind
She's quite attractive but she ain't no friend of mine.
