This performance is a completely unique testament to the raw power of vocal/lyrical improvisation. Also, it happens to be my personal favorite concert recording of Coil.

Jhonn Balance wasn't doing his best mentally by this point in time, as you can clearly tell from his portrait on the cover. He was tired, emotionally spent, and quickly spiraling into a horrible alcoholism. However, this didn't stop Balance from using this period of turmoil to churn out some of the very most powerful, eclectic and individual performances he would ever give. If you ask me, this one is possibly the most musically innovative (and heartfelt) of these performances from just before the end of his life.

Long story short, there's no filler here, and no thin ideas or musical meandering. Sleaze Christopherson is attentive and focused, Tom Edwards and Thighpaulsandra are responsive to Jhonn and creative as ever, and Jhonn is channeling lyrical and melodic wordplay on a level that is nothing short of supernatural.

The opener, "Triple Sun Introduction," sets the stage with an airy quality of magic and spirituality that Coil is known for. However, once the group get deep into the second track of the set, "Snow Falls into Military Temples," other musical elements begin to emerge that are not so typical of Coil in terms of their live sets. In this track, Balance completely lets loose his improvisational skill, sometimes wailing like a crying banshee and screaming like a madman. This utter lack of regard for conventional vocal performance restraints may have been due in part to his (possibly) inebriated/drugged state, but is nonetheless very musically valid and fascinating.
