Coil: Jhon Balance Memorial 8th )Anniversary (November 13, 2012

Sent by Peter Christoperson “Sleazy” in 2005.

“Wise words from the departing; eat your greens, especially broccoli.”
-Jhon Balance ov Coil

It has been a long eight years since the passing into the threshold of the lead vocalist of the band Coil. The band was a global icon of experimental, Avante Garde, neo folk and during their last final years was a wonderful performance act to watch live, for those who were fortunate enough to see them perform that is.

In their earlier years, they would only perform live during pagan holidays and perhaps had a few friends and loved ones, if any watch them perform during that period. It wasn’t until their later years in the late 90’s early 2000’s that Ian, one of the band members finally encouraged the group to perform live for an audience. And we as Coil fans were fortunate that they did perform live all over the globe.

I write this as a special moment for those who cherish today the works of Coil; to remember; to mourn, and to play Coil songs and share them to their friends and loved ones on Facebook, Twitter, and other media networks as a special reminder that the band members of Coil will never be forgotten. May he always rest peacefully and never be forgotten. A moment of silence please, and thank you.

  1. Just found this post! I visited Balance’s memorial in Cumbria in May this year. If you haven’t been there, it’s a beautiful and moving place. Another year almost gone…
