After leaving London in 1999 for the sleepy seaside retiree town of Weston-super-Mare, Coil co-founders John Balance & Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson set up shop in a palatial 8-bedroom estate to pursue the outer reaches of the group's heightening cabalistic chemistry. Among the staggering string of late-era masterpieces they produced is lunar opus Musick Is To Play In The Dark, widely hailed as an artistic zenith upon it's release. The sessions that birthed it proved so fruitful that a 2nd LP took shape during the creation of the 1st one.

Aided by the recent addition of Welsh multi-instrumentalist engineer Thighpaulsandra, Coil mined further into the recesses of surrealist eldritch electronica Balance termed "moon music" - post-industrial spellcasting at the axis of narcotic & nocturnal energies.
Musick To Play In The Dark² spans a full witching hour of bad acid sound design, synthesizer voyaging, opiated balladry, Luciferian glitch and subliminal hymnals; alternately ominous, oracular & absurd.
Scottish gothic icon Rose McDowall guests on vocals for 2 tracks, but otherwise the album is a hermetic affair, tapping into the group's limitless insular synergy.
