Frozen Lonesome - Time For Coffee Break

Reader Frozen Lonesome celebrates one of life's greatest wonders and pleasures in an album that explores Coffee. I had a couple of cups of black while listening to it this morning. This album retains Steve's personal style, but put me in mind of Coil. There was something in his orchestration over the public domain samples that reminded me of an energetic, perhaps over-caffeinated, Coil album.

Thanks for sharing Tim. I always look forward to your descriptions of my music.

Coli? I haven't thought about them or listened to any of their music in a long time. I think I even had a couple of the albums but preferred the harsher Current 93 at the time.
Current 93 and I share the same religion, but not the same taste in music.

I'm a huge fan of Throbbing Gristle. Of all the side projects that the members have come up with, Coil is my favorite.
I also like Throbbing Gristle. My favourite recordings are Heathen Earth and the binaural Mission of Dead Souls recording from San Francisco, And of course 20 Jazz Funk Greats.

In my return to University late 80's I had a on-campus radio show called Live At The Witch Trials (after The Fall album) before the station got its FM licence. My claim to fame was that the Jocks ripped the speaker off the wall in the area they hung out after I played (or during) We Hate You (Little Girls) five times in a row. I think it was the b-side of the Subhuman 12".

LOL! That huge serotonin spike probably did not go well with the steroids.

I didn't find them until the 00's, when I was doing my own research into the history of Industrial music. I fell in love with them at the first song I heard: Hamburger Lady.

Anyone that can make a kazoo sound that fucking scary has got my interest. While they are contemporaries of Black Sabbath, Ozzy and friends were making B-Movie level horror about nonsense devils and demons. TG were exploring the really scary stuff, and you only find that in other human beings.

I've often wondered how many people were surprised by the spurious promise of the title 20 Jazz Funk Greats. That album does a fantastic job of showing their range though.

Persuasion is an intriguingly seductive track:

While What a Day is an anthem of sludge:
