Coil Biography (Wikipedia)

Coil were an English experimental music group, founded in 1982 by John Balance in London. Initially envisioned as a solo project by lead singer-songwriter Balance (born Geoffrey Burton) while he was in the band Psychic TV, Coil evolved into a full-time project with the addition of keyboardist Peter Christopherson—former member of seminal industrial band Throbbing Gristle who became Balance's creative and personal partner. Throughtout the group's existence, Balance and Christopherson have been the only constant members; others members and contributors include, among others, Stephen Thrower, Danny Hyde, Drew McDowall, William Breeze, Thighpaulsandra (Tim Lewis), and Ossian Brown (Simon Norris).

The group's first official release as Coil was a 12" 1984 extended play titled How to Destroy Angels. Following the 12"s success, Some Bizzare Records produced two albums, Scatology (1984) and Horse Rotorvator (1986). After falling out with Some Bizzare, Coil had established their own record label, Threshold House, through which they produced and released Love's Secret Domain (1991), which saw the duo incorporate the influence of the UK acid house scene. Financial difficulties slowed the group’s work in the early 1990s before they returned to the project on releases such as Musick to Play in the Dark (1999), as well as releasing several projects under aliases.
