Sorry for the slow response and form letter-type nature of it!
Latest news from COIL/ELpH/Threshold House is that John Balance recently, voluntarily admitted himself to a private drug and alcohol dependency clinic in Wiltshire for treatment of long term alcohol abuse. He seems to be doing well so far and is no longer physically addicted, just the mental problems to deal with! Actually this bit seems to be going okay too.
Latest release from us is the ELpH vs COIL album "Worship the Glitch" which should be available as you read this (via World Serpent as usual)
Thanks for your interest and support!
