ZOS KIA / COIL 'Transparent' CD/LP/Shirt(CSR230CD/LP/TS)
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 August 23rd 1983 in a cassette only edition on the now defunct Nekrophile label, Austria. They were the first released recordings of both COIL and ZOS KIA. It was reissued years later by COIL (Threshold House / Eskaton) in an edited edition. The entire recordings are now released on CD/vinyl for the first time and are completely remastered from the unedited tapes. Includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks by AKE (pre-ZOS KIA).
The music on Transparent is genuinely unsettling and disturbing, with a more primal Industrial feel than the Coil album which followed; ‘Scatology’. An essential insight into the very early work of these extraordinary artists and an undeniable link between Coil and Throbbing Gristle.

"Nigeria: Trapped in the cycle of violence"...that's the title of a damning report by Amnesty International looking at the situation in the north of the country...and more specifically at the campaign of terror being waged by the Islamist group Boko Haram.
While it highlights human rights abuses committed by Boko Haram, it also points to the failings of the country's security forces, accused of being part of the problem and of acting with little regard for the rule of law or human rights. Local people, it says, are living in fear and suffering at the hands of the very forces which should be protecting them.
Shehu Sani is a human rights activist in Kaduna . Does he think that the security forces have made a bad situation even worse ?
