Description

"Black Gold" was a bootleg containing the "Songs of the Week", a collection of songs by Coil distributed via their former primary website Brainwashed.com. Starting in October 1998 and ending sometime in August 1999, the goal of these releases was to give the public a chance to download hard-to-obtain or exclusive tracks. All of the songs, except for "Nasa Arab" in 160 kbps MP3, were released in 128kbps MP3. I only have MP3 files, so that's the source for this video. Full disc, the second of a 2xCD bootleg boxset. 1. Egyptian Basses 0:00 2. Pre-original Chaostrophy 8:16 3. The Dark Age of Love 13:50 4. Spastiche 17:15 5. Assassins of Hakim Bey 22:43 6. Protection II 26:59 7.

An Apology 1:20:28 "Songs of the Week" was released in numerous forms; the version I have is in a radically different track order than where I see it online. I even have a few additional songs that don't seem to be apart of the official listings, but for some reason were included with my copy anyway. I'm not complaining, but checking the listings below may confuse you. The links detail the availability of most of the tracks: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Songs_of_the_Week http://www.brainwashed.com/coil/music_stw.php Many of these songs are presented in edited and/or remixed form to regular versions of them. "Egyptian Basses" is from the unreleased 1996 Backwards demos. "Pre-original Chaostrophy" is apparently an even earlier version of the song than "Original Chaostrophy" from "Stolen and Contaminated Songs". "The Dark Age of Love" is an exclusive song that features Marc Almond. Perhaps it was originally intended for "Love's Secret Domain", back when the album was to be called the same as the track? "Spastiche" is from the unreleased 1996 Backwards demos. "Assassins Of Hakim Bey" is an exclusive and features Bill Laswell and Hakim Bey. "Protection II" is exclusive and is a recreation of "Protection" from "Born Again Pagans". The song is an early version of the songs "Simenon" and "Bee Has The Photos" on the Backwards demo. Three official alternate versions of the song "Protection" have also surfaced as bootlegs, and this is one of them. "Rush (Black Sun Remix)" is actually a remix of a Depeche Mode song, released on "Remixes 81 - 04". "Journey to Avebury" was originally released on "Brainwaves" with a longer intro. "Acid Jam (Part 2) and (Part 3)" are exclusive. I wonder where Part 1 is? I wonder if the name is taken from their acid house era, as in "Love's Secret Domain". "Stoned Circular III" was originally released on "Brainwaves" and is sometimes called "Red Skeletons II". "The Gimp (Sometimes)" and "An Apology" are not included in most listings of "Black Gold" that I can find. I take it they weren't released with the "Songs of the Week". I'm not sure where they come from, but I think this version of "The Gimp (Sometimes)" was originally released on the compilation "Hate People Like Us" featuring remixes and covers of the band People Like Us. The original version was titled "The Gimp/Sometimes" and sounds much less developed than the version on "Black Antlers". "An Apology", on the other hand, is a total mystery to me. It seems to be John Balance (calling himself Geoff) telling someone about delays on a remix. Enjoy!
