“A helix is a shape like a spiral staircase. It’s a type of smooth space curve with tangent lines at a constant angle to a fixed axis. The fixed axis in my instance was an LP vinyl record. A record, despite the trouble and legal ramifications that surrounded it, opened my mind to many much beloved artists which also included Coil. If You Can’t Please Yourself, You Can’t Please Your Soul by Various Artists (SBZLP 001) on the Some Bizzarre label. Some Bizzarre Records was founded in 1981 and its founder was Stevo Pearce. Genres explored: Experimental, industrial, electronic, and post-punk though genre tags tend to fumble around somewhat when trying to denote something new and something radically challenging.” – Excerpt from Everything Keeps Dissolving.
I’ve written an article called Everything Keeps Dissolving for issue two of the zine Man is the Animal: A Coil Zine on Temporal Boundary Press. It’s now pre-ordering and includes pieces by John Balance, Jeremy Reed, Nick Soulsby, Stephen Sennitt, Patrick Weir and Cormac Pentecost. Temporal Boundary Press can be followed on Twitter.
