      @mau∞uam: I did speak about Coil in some detail but any interview is severely edited down unfortunately. Given that this is afternoon radio on BBC I think it's very generous and supportive.

      A great inspiration to all of us and I'm sure a great friend to some has passed. Thanks for posting this Mr. Rimbaud; carry the torch.

      a key part of a chain of musicians and artists who made this kid think differently about the world. i grew up in the mountains of British Columbia Canada. Not concrete and steel. But amidst the lushness and clean air i was witness to the dark blot of industry, and found refuge in the works of TG and Coil (thanks to a program on CBC called Brave New Waves.... with NO record stores for hundreds of miles and only pop music at that) as well as you, Scanner. i was lucky enough to travel through a few industrial bands of the day as a keyboard player, and in so, was able to hear records first hand (thak you Mr Fist).....
      but i ramble.
      Courage to be what ever you are in what ever your medium is was instilled upon me through artist like Unkle Sleazy.
      and i am sad.
      Love and respect to you and yours from the pacific northwest.

      @Beast of Eden: Just to be clear it's a highly edited interview from one I made shortly after I heard the news so I felt I was rather muddled and distressed, and when asked to recommend a piece of music I suggested something by The Threshold Houseboys Choir as I felt this was explicitly Sleazy. Off course I have no say over what music the BBC wishes to play so clearly someone picked this and to be honest to even hear TG played mid afternoon on BBC radio to millions of listeners was a pleasure in itself.

      @scanner: Honestly, I don't think "Hot on the Heels of Love" was a good choice. Basically, that song is the one that most strongly bears the mark of Chris Carter and Cosey, to the point where you can call it the first Chris & Cosey song. Hard to say which song most strongly bore the mark of Peter Christopherson, but probably a song by Coil would be better. And Coil was hardly mentioned in the clip, oddly.

      Thanks for the tribute, though. Christopherson really was a truly seminal artist (quite literally :) who's work across a range of media should be better known. He will be missed by those of us who know of him.

      I'm shocked and deeply saddened to have heard the news of Sleazys passing on. Still taking it in. His influence on what we consider 'modern culture' was immeasurable and leaves a great chasm where this great man once stood. My deepest sympathies to you Robin on the loss of your friend.
      RIP dearest Sleazy, The Dreamer Is Still Asleep...

      @Duncan Creamer: there would be a copyright issue with using the song and one can easily find it online everywhere anyhow. On this day I don't want to cause any upset with copyright of all things

      Very nice... but I would have preferred if you hadn't cut off the song.
