We here at Kittysneezes are pretty big fans of Coil, so it’s really sad to hear about the death of Peter Christopherson, one-half of that band, one-fourth of inventors-of-Industrial Throbbing Gristle, and a wicked awesome designer, music video director and, from all accounts, human being.


Lee, the guy who turned me on to Coil, for which I’m forever grateful, was going to write a longer piece on Sleazy’s passing, but he got slammed at work (on an admittedly really cool project)… and he discovered that the fine folks at PopMatters had basically said everything he would have said anyway.


That said — he was an immense talent, and the world’s poorer without him. Here’re some videos to enjoy and celebrate his life and work.
