RIP John Balance

John Balance, the singer from Coil, died over the weekend. He fell off a first floor landing whilst drunk. It's very sad news for me, as Coil is one of my favorite bands ever. He was a brilliant musician and lyricist, and while almost no one knows who he is, his death is a great loss to the music world.

"Whichever stars we walk among
We both seek out the darkest red
The wine was turned to blood again
Without this blood we'd both be dead "

Makes me want to have a coil remembrance party...

(btw, NIN has decided to not release bleedthrough... okay, it isn't *that* bad, they have just decided they want a new album name)
