In the early 1980s, shortly after the breakup of THROBBING GRISTLE, BOYD RICE went to London to record a one-off studio session with JEFF RUSHTON and TG's PETER CHRISTOPHERSON, who had recently started releasing records as COIL. The trio called themselves THE SICKNESS OF SNAKES, and the recordings were released on a split 12 inch, with Current 93 taking the opposite side of the album. Now, more than 25 years after the original release, Boyd Rice is reissuing the three Sickness of Snakes tracks as a one-sided 12 inch record and a CDEP. Both editions are presented in lavishly printed sleeves, and include previously unpublished photos of Boyd Rice and Coil, and a new essay written by Boyd Rice. For the CDEP, the photos and essay are printed in an eight page booklet, and for the vinyl edition, they're printed on a long, folded insert.
