    The Snow

    Chris called me the other day when it was snowing in Boston for the first time of the season. Unfortunately I didn't get to see any here on the coast. It was mostly rain aside from a dusting overnight. Anyway we have this thing about playing Coil's "The Snow" whenever we witness the first snowfall. It's just something we joke about and have kept with us since college.

    I've been wanting to post a Coil track here for a while. They've always been one of my favorites over the years. I remember trying to track down their out-of-print Love's Secret Domain album until it was recently re-released. I've always enjoyed the many strange phases of this group. And now the primary member and vocalist John Balance who started the band over 20 years ago has passed away. Due to an unfortunate accident in his home, he died on Saturday. This is very saddening news. He will be missed. So, finally, here's a Coil track.
