Rasing Hell

I didn't do an RIP for Sleazy at the time - but, as I'm sure most of you are aware by now, he was a musician (/writer/producer/video maker, etc etc) best known for his roles in Throbbing Gristle and Coil throughout the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s, who died peacefully in his sleep on the 25th November, 2010.

Having stumbled across Coil's amazing ("bowel churning," to quote director Clive Barker) Unreleased Themes for Hellraiser the other day I felt it necesarry to guide your ears towards some bits from his phenomenal body of work.

Here is an interview with Coil from the late 80s, which touches on some interesting points regarding the usefulness of their brand of challenging and "introvert" music. Sleazy's the one on the midi keyboard organising some of the chaos about half way through.

He leaves behind him one hell of a discography. Long may his legacy live on. Rest in peace.
