Through listening to Hawkwind (Space Ritual album which is recommended) – who interestingly also used the EMS VCS3 to disturbing effect – I googled to find out how Del Dettmar could afford one, (answer: they were actually the cheapest synth at the time, still a hefty for then £350, I guess they weren’t totally broke?) I also found this lovely interview with Coil by Matthew Collings in 2001. I guess that must be Thighpaulsandra to the left?
Not exactly sure why they are making sounds on the beach, though. Mind the sand!
