Notes

Side A features Coil's withdrawn theme music for Clive Barker's "Hellraiser" movie. Side B features music composed for various commercials.

Printed on sleeve: "The only group I've heard on disc, whose records I've taken off because they made my bowels churn." - Clive Barker, Director of Hellraiser.
The spine has the text "The consequences of raising hell…".

Playing speed is 45 RPM (not mentioned on the release).

Made in England (on sleeve)
Made in France (on B-side label)

Initial 10" pressing on clear vinyl, probably limited to 500 copies.
Second 10" pressing on black vinyl (this one), quantity unknown.
Third 10" pressing on pink vinyl, probably limited to 500 copies.

Also released as a tape (version differs from vinyl version, tape version is much slower, probably 16 RPM).

Sleeve is printed so that either side can function as the front (ie one side is upside down in relation to the other) with the disk removed from the right hand edge.

    A powerful and timeless classic still kept alive on Apple Music

      One of my favorite releases. Maybe one day a reissue on a 12” with an etched b-side :)

        Mine also has a 2-sided insert, "Coil Magazine". I didn't see that mentioned in description

          I've always listened to this record at 33rpm, and it makes much more sense that way... especially side two, which sounds like the 'chipmunks remix' to me when I hear the CD/digital version. I often wonder if they actually meant for it to be played at different speeds – especially given the apparent playing speed on the tape version. Anyway, I recommend side two at 33rpm!

            Coil were approached to compose the soundtrack for Hellraiser, the result was apparently the only record Clive Barker had ever heard that he had to turn off because it 'made his bowels churn'. Jessie! Surely that would be the desired effect for a good Hellraiser soundtrack...
            This is seriously good stuff, and the advert shorts on the B-side are paradoxical fun as well...
