Title: Astral Disaster (yellow vinyl) LP
Format: LP
Label: Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"In 1998, Coil were invited to record at Sun Dials studios beneath the London Bridge Hop Exchange—a studio originally know as Samurai Studios, originally built and owned by Iron Maiden. The premises in Victorian times was an old debtors prison which had three underground levels, and still had the original chains, manacles and wrought iron doors from the old prison. This caught the attention of John Balance, who was very keen to record there. Coil spent a number of days recording at the studio during Halloween 1998. With Gary Ramons help, they developed a number of tracks, some of which resulted in this LP. Ramon produced and mixed the Astral Disaster recordings, as well as playing guitar and sitar on these sessions. A version of the album was later remixed by the band and released on their own label—but the Prescription mixes as released in 1999 are unique.

This rare album was part of the legendary subscription-only Prescription label album series in the late 1990s, issued in an edition of 99 signed and numbered copies, long since sold out. (If you are wondering, originals fetch £700+). This is the first time the album is being released officially since 1999. Taken from the original masters, this reissue comes with original sleeve artwork, insert, and the facsimile signatures of John Balance and Peter Christopherson that came with the first issue." - Lion Productions.

Title: A Cold Cell In Bangkok
Format: One-Sided Picture Disc 12"
Label: Optimo Music
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
Single sided 12" single; silk-screened image designed by Lindsay Todd. "I fell in love with Coils music as a teenager in the 1980s. . . . In 2008, Domino Records invited Optimo to put together a compilation of music for them to release. I wanted to include Coils A Cold Cell and after approaching Peter Christopherson for permission to release it he suggested doing an exclusive remix for the compilation. How could I say no? The remix was titled A Cold Cell In Bangkok." - JD Twitch, May 2017.
