From former ''Psychic TV'' member Geoff Rushton, aka Jhonn (spelling varies) Balance and its founder Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson (also a former member of Music/ThrobbingGristle) came the [[AvantGardeMusic experimental]] band ''Coil.'' Formed in 1982, and disbanded in 2004, following Rushton's untimely death. Masters of the {{industrial}} genre, ''Coil'' went on to define (and re-define) several aspects of the genre over their career. Christopherson was involved in creating one of the first samplers, which ended up being used extensively on their 1991 album ''Love's Secret Domain.'' ''Coil'' came to mainstream prominence through their remixes of Music/NineInchNails songs in the mid-90s. Their debut single "How to Destroy Angels" later became the title of NIN frontman Trent Reznor's second band (which Christopherson approved the use of.) Coil's influence is felt across the world of electronic and experimental music, from {{Autechre}} to SonicYouth.
