Solstice Update 2012
Dear Friends of Unkle Sleazy and Threshold House,
Initial archiving of all Peter’s Work has now been completed. Discussions are underway with various internationally respected institutions to locate the most appropriate place to curate Peter’s unique artistic legacy for posterity and safekeeping for future generations.
During the course of archiving, the finished version of ‘TM2: the legacy’ was found. This was Peter’s ultimate project. Many months of research led to the finding that in the current market a suitable ‘receptacle’ for these sonic experiences does not exist, so a bespoke vehicle is being designed and manufactured. This will be a unique artefact. Due to the complicated nature of the project, no release date is currently scheduled. It is hoped to be completed before the present Mayan Calendar runs out later this year, and will be available exclusively via State51.
We have been inundated with many kind and generous offers to re-issue Coil material. After much careful consideration, it’s been agreed by the remaining members of Coil who wish to be involved, that they will nurture and develop this project themselves. This is entirely in keeping with the DIY artistic ethos that Peter and Jhonn maintained since Coil’s disappointing dealings with record labels.
More details of exactly what form such official re-issues will take will be posted on the TH site as and when they manifest and will be available exclusively via the TH site. Grateful thanks for their enthusiasm, encouragement and opinions are given to all who have corresponded in these matters.
Remaining monies from Peter’s Work and Estate have been distributed amongst his thai family and the following charities:
Boon Ya Torn at Bang Kwang prison.
All of these organisations are focused on the provision of educational opportunity and pastoral care for underprivileged kids in SE Asia. Peter strongly believed in giving people the chance and possibility for positive change in their lives and outlook. Where possible, education scholarships have been created in Peter’s name and memory to continue his desire to give the less fortunate in society options and choices in life they wouldn’t otherwise have.
We would like to thank everyone for your continued positive support.
Wishing you all a Happy Summer Solstice 2012 e.v.
The TH team.
