16912Re: Coil Video
- May 27, 2003I recall seeing this video circa 1986-87. I do NOT recall Mark Almond
in the video, however, it has been a while and my memory does not
always serve me so well. The controversy you mention probably stems
from the video depicting the death of a young AIDS victim. A 12"
single was also released, the proceeds from which benefitted AIDS
research &/or outreach programs. I still have this record I am NOT
selling it on ebay ! As for the video I do not know where or if it
can be seen, especially since this was back in their SOME BIZZARE
and cheers to you mon ami, Michael
