Finally released on vinyl since being recorded in 1999, Expansion Naranja came about after a chance meeting of John Balance, Peter Christopherson and the members of Ford Proco at a The Orb gig. With Ford Proco being Coil’s almost equivalent in Mexico it was a bloody good idea, the result being industial soundscaped techno, and an absolute must for Coil fans. 12” EP on Mannequin.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 18 June 2015
Some exhumed Coil material here, a 1999 collab with Mexican band Ford Proco. I can hear the pricking of a thousand rabid fans’ ears. This lot met at an Orb gig in LA if that matters at all, and were spurred on to make some tunes together. A lovely tale.
Phil says correctly that the beat kinda sounds like The Orb, as true for the A as the more minimal base beat on the B side. But it’s like The Orb’s turn of the millennium music but all fucked up, with the A track ringing out scraped phrases, metal being dragged along the ground and all that. The restrained, dubby beat and actual chords on the B bring the illusion of safety til a warped, grainy synth pours hot metal needles all over your clean comfortable slippers. Balance’s vox on the A is some unsettling samplesque mutterings, ‘is that the word drugs I hear?’ says Robin, lust in his eyes.
The title is apparently the method of creation, a method which is expanded upon in no way in the press release. I can only assume that involved some illicit popping of orange things. But then you’d say the same about Jethro Tull, and look at them, shiny beacons of the straight edge. So yes this is some good grinding stuff, Phil also tells me that it’s sort of like mid-to-late Coil? I dunno, ask him.
9/10 ROGER LINNEY Customer review, 4th September 2015
This is actually very good indeed.Its a black vinyl two track 12" single.I thought twice about buying this but i'm quite glad I did.I was'nt sure which speed to listen to it.In fact you could actually play this at either 33.3 or 45 and still enjoy it (its even more dubby at 33.3).You get two slabs of spaced out industrial techno induced vibes. Lovely cover artwork of an eagle owl sitting in a tree trunk.Highly recommended. Get this from Normans...NOW !!!.It seems to be sold out everywhere else (including the label).
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
