Bright Lights and Cats With No Mouths – John Balance


Published by Timeless – 2016 – France

29 x 29 cm – 248 pages in full colours – Hardcover with embossed title

The reprint of the first ever extensive overview of art (drawings, paintings and sketches) created by John Balance of Coil. The first edition, published in November of 2014 to mark the 10th anniversary of the artist’s untimely demise, sold out in record-breaking time and has already been fetching vast amounts on the secondary market. We think John’s art, as his music, should stay in print and be easily available for all interested parties. This second printing is essentially the same book with a few amendments, corrections and minor improvements. The artworks featured in the book are both finished elaborate hallucinatory pieces as well as quick sketches with a good sprinkling of Balance’s often underestimated humour. Homages to idols and inspirations next to idiosyncratic magical dreamscapes executed in a wide variety of styles and mediums Compiled by Liam Thomas and Thighpaulsandra – with text by Val Denham and Jeremy Reed. Second edition of 500 unnumbered copies, now on high quality matt coated Condat paper (150 gr).
