This book is a time machine....
We’re thrilled to present this collection of photographs by Ruth Bayer, documenting Coil’s first live performances as a band between 2000 and 2002.
Ruth was granted unprecedented access to three live London performances – at the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Barbican – and was present both onstage and during behind-the-scenes preparations.
Ruth’s images capture both the method, and the madness, of Coil’s now-legendary live performances, and provide a unique window into this critical, final phase of Coil’s existence.
