Or it's just out of respect, and a cool name.

hasn't reznor worked with one of the coil guys frequently in the past? i'm sure he has his blessing... or maybe even he's involved in some way..

Why on earth would anyone give a damn about using the name 'How to Destroy Angels'? What a petty thing to get all hot and bothered about.

This project sounds amazing. Reminds me of the grime from Downward Spiral but real different at the same time. Thats a-ok in my books.

It's a great title and a pretty good record by Coil, but makes for a tedious band name, imho.

Lack of respect for the dead and whatever other moral lapses you perceive seem more like the product of your association with Sleazy and perhaps Balance than anything else. Perhaps you'd have been pissed at Coil if you were tight with William Blake or Igor Stravinsky, I dunno, but I contend that morality and integrity have nothing to do with this.

Hmm.
I once went TV shopping with her and Trent. Er, I mean I was waiting for my girlfriend's car stereo to be installed at a Circuit City in Emeryville, CA and they were there too. Weird eh? The weirder part was I discovered them after I ran across the street to Boarders Books and had returned with a remix album of... I think maybe The Fragile. There they were. Odd. When they saw us recognizing them (not hard as I has blue hair and my girlfriend, green) he looked like he was thinking, "Oh shit, I'm recognized." I wanted to walk over and say, "I come here after getting this (show CD) and you're here? Stop ****ing with me!" but instead I just ignored them.

Completely false information.

Lots of bands name themselves after music/film/art anyways.

I really liked that Dewanatron 'Dual Primate Console'

That, combined with an old tabletop Galaga, could be the best date night ever.

I don't know anything about baseball hats and I've never been shopping with Trent, but I love the sound (and look) of that teaser clip. My hopes are high! I just hope it doesn't disappoint.

Time will tell.

man I clicked on this hoping for a discussion on gear coil used. I doubt either Sleazy or Balance would have a problem with someone else using a combination of words they used at one point. As a band name it is a bit weak though.

Coil, "Coil ****s Our American Minds for the First Time and for Good"

The baseball hat comment comes in later, but I've seen it in another interview also. Peter has also publicly stated that Jhon wasn't thrilled about being associated with NiN. The cross-pollination of the arts has always existed, but to take a seminal industrial album and steal it's title is lame.
Not sure how you can come to the conclusion that "Jhon ditched the Backwards album that was to come out on Nothing because he didn't want to be associated with NIN and 'all those baseball hats'." from that interview.

The baseball hats comment is clearly talking about american teenagers, as the discussion is quite obviously about how coil would feel if they became popular in the american mainstream.

Typical internet rumour mongering.

You're obviously a fantasist.

Just for the record,

"Peter is an old friend and collaborator. I obviously ran the name choice by him first and we've discussed him contributing to the upcoming material in one form or another."

saw it on pitchfork

Everybody seems ok that radiohead got it's name from a talking heads song. Does anyone know more about the primate, at least more than is listed on the site. And if anyone is interested there's a new Trent song out, theme for tetsuo the bullet man

yeah that tetsou theme song is actually really good. Full of metasonix synth/fx sounds. Bit disappointed htda is so similar to nin though.


Resonant Serpent... pretending you were friends with a dead musician to win an internet argument, then deleting all your posts when you're rumbled is prrrrretty low. For shame.

F/u/c/k Y/o/u.

It's a gear forum, not an ethics forum. I could post photos of hanging out with Coil, NiN, Ministry, etc., but I owe you nothing. Keep drooling over lame music if that's what makes you happy, but remember that some of us were there when it was actually breaking ground and worth listening to.
