Zos Kia was formed by John Gosling (Mekon), John Balance (Coil)
and Min, with guest Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson (Throbbing
Gristle). Their one and only album, 'Transparent', was released
on tape in 1983 by Austria's now defunct Nekrophile label.
These first released recordings of both Coil and Zos Kia were
reissued years later by Coil (Threshold House/Eskaton) in an
edited edition. Now the complete recordings appear for the
first time, completely remastered from the unedited tapes. The music on 'Transparent' is genuinely unsettling and disturbing, with a more primal industrial feel than 'Scatology', the Coil album which followed. Here's an essential insight into the very early work of these extraordinary artists and an undeniable link between Coil and Throbbing Gristle. The double vinyl edition comes in a sumptuous gatefold sleeve with a 12-inch booklet featuring unseen images. A download card is also included.
Also available: TRANSPARENT (CD).
