Coil - The Ape Of Naples (2005)

‘The Ape of Naples’ can be viewed as a memorial to Jhonn Balance following his untimely accidental death, a broadly indicative summing up of the work of Coil, featuring new versions of three key songs from their repertoire alongside other numbers, providing ample evidence that the introduction of marimba added depth and richness to the group’s work and indicating the direction that might have been more fully explored on future releases.
