Coil - Astral Disaster (1999)

Hardly an obscure band, of course, but this album (in dire need of a reissue) deserves more attention. It was originally released in 1999 as a ridiculously limited vinyl LP on Prescription, Gary Ramon (Sun Dial)'s label (all of their LPs came out in runs of 99 copies). At one point a vinyl reissue on Threshold House sold for 550$ on Discogs. There was also a CD reissue (with extra track and this new cover artwork) in January 2000, but even that is long gone.
Chronologically this album fits between the EPs that were later collected as 'Moon's Milk in Four Phases' and the 'Musick to Play in the Dark' albums that formed the pinnacle of their career (to me at least). Contains their smash hit 'I Don't Want to Be the One'.
With the death of Sleazy (R.I.P.) I don't know what's going to happen to their catalogue. You can wait forever for a reissue or get it here.
