These recordings were initially titled «The Side Effects of Life», which was a working title for Coil’s legendary album, «Love’s Secret Domain».
The music presented here are demos / mixes of material that was later released as the «Love’s Secret Domain» album and includes part of the ‘Wrong Eye/Scope’ 7″.
The original cassette (only a handful are known to exist) was sent to WaxTrax! records in 1989 ahead of the planned future release of «Love’s Secret Domain» on the label. The track «Love’s Secret Domain» was subsequently released on the Various – ! (Wax Trax! Sampler #2) cassette. The album was finally released by Torso (Europe) and Wax Trax! (USA) in 1991.
These recordings and mixes are incredibly rare, and demonstrate Coil’s working towards the final pieces that would make up «Love’s Secret Domain».
