Tracklist Hide Credits
Fidgit is a demo of Further Back And Faster
Carvers and Gilders is an early mix of Chaostrophy
Tracklisting is slightly different than listed. "Window Pain" comes before "Teenage Lightening" and there is a second, truncated version of "Fidgit" after "Love's Secret Domain."
"The Side Effects Of Life" was a working title for Love's Secret Domain at one point.
This cassette was sent to WaxTrax! records 1989/1990, presumably to get approval for the planned future release of Love's Secret Domain on the label. Also possibly the source of the circulated bootleg entitled Love's Secret Demise, aka the LSD demos.
An unknown number of copies exist, however there are two confirmed, one in the possession of this entry's original author, another from the Coil archive auctioned on eBay by a former member of Coil in April of 2014. Both known copies are pictured above. A third copy also exists with a handwritten label by John Balance and is accompanied by a letter with the ins and outs of John working on the album, however no pictures have surfaced as of yet. At least one of these copies is one sided and has slowed down music by Greater Than One on side B.
Pictures of sleeve from and parts of letter to Torso uploaded.
