Electric Sewer Age was conceived in 2006, a glowing spark in the imagination of John Deek of Divine Frequency. A brief, cryptic announcement in 2009, followed by a few rough tracks released online, heralded its birth. Announced with nothing more than the tagline “an Infinity of Sewers thrown open beneath the Threshold House”, little was known about this upcoming project other than it likely featured some involvement of former Coil legends Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and Danny Hyde, and perhaps, it was rumored, with the posthumous contributions of Jhonn Balance. Because Electric Sewer Age was intended to be an anonymous aural experiment meant to free the listeners mind of any preconceptions about who or what created it, little more was ever planned to be publicly revealed about the project, even after the first release. However, following the unexpected and untimely passing in 2010 of Christopherson, the first Electric Sewer Age EP became an epitaph to the loss of this peerless musician, for these were the last tracks he and his decades long collaborator and friend Danny Hyde ever completed together.

The music, originally intended to conclude Coil’s “Moon’s Milk” series, was released on CD by Divine Frequency in 2012, and then on vinyl the next year by Danny Hyde. Both editions sold out quckly and have been unavailable until now.

“Moon’s Milk In Final Phase” consists of four ambient-electronic instrumentals, reissued by Soleilmoon Recordings on CD and deluxe gatefold 12 inch, the latter in two colors — 250 copies on moon green and 250 on celestial black vinyl. A download code is included with each LP.

As codas go, this is a truly moving one, the lights flicker eerily in the East one last time as the brilliant vapor of a life spent in pursuit of uncompromising creation is allowed to leave the lodge and fly away from the shadow of the Black Sun. Like doves released in the hopes of Peace, 'In Final Phase' lets all of us who remember and mourn have our moment of catharsis.

Electric Sewer Age - Moon's Milk (Waxing) (HQ) (07:37)
Label: Divine Frequency -- none Format: CD, EP, Limited Edition Country: US Released: Jan 2012 Genre: Electronic Style: Experimental "In Final Phase (2011) Electric Sewer Age Off Label Experimental, Drone Thailand 9/10 A haunted final transmission from beyond the grave, an infinite point in space collapsing in upon itself, memories of sound from the ending of all seasons. We have here the last music ever made by Peter Christopherson which was originally intended to complete the unreleased box set of Coil's seasonal singles. This is the sixth entry and features full collaboration with Coil's long-time 'secret' member, Danny Hyde. You can hear in the composition that Sleazy had already left behind the working templates of Coil and was once more, exploring hitherto unheard arenas of sound. Hyde's mastery of sonic manipulation is in full swing here, he's the one who more than anything made Coil's classic tune "First Dark Ride" the monster that it is. His own influences via Aural Rage appear here and there but they aren't very overt; more than anything this was a meeting of two minds with the singular purpose of creating something new, something riveting, something deliciously twisted. Don't go into hearing this EP with any expectations as this is timeless, utterly place less music which will definitely take you down a winding, gnarled path. I can detect hints of the Threshold Houseboys Choir and shards of SoiSong from Peter's end of things but Hyde has excelled himself, conjuring up dark majesty through the mutilations of time and space on a track such as 'Moons Waning'. Throughout this piece we are shown through layer upon layer of damned beauty, one's pulse rises during the tautly tense proceedings. Out upon the shore, under the malignant eye of celestial malevolence, your prints leave not a trace upon the shifting sands which have always been here. Long before anything stirred or the dreams of empire manifest in the hearts of men, this was here. A barren, never ending stretch of absolute desolation as far as the eye can see. When the gently whirring electronics give way to what I'd wager were orchestral stabs at one point, you fall completely under the spell of this wickedly glittering release. The remnants of what was, the very last drop of this vital fluid. In the oceans of the moon, we do indeed lie squid like and squalid. We shiver in this abandoned parallel universe which has been concluded many years after the initiation of that infamous collection of singles which Coil snuck out of their monolithic tower and then steeped in the unconscious dreams of an unforgiving world. I truly miss you, Sleazy, and this is as good a send off for the fans as any. Hyde has made a brave choice in releasing this, it would have been all too convenient to just delete it and forget but Coil were always about accessing and the accepting the parts of humanity which we are continually told to deny. If the Ape of Naples and The New Backwards were the last gasps of Coil then this is the first glint of where things were headed before Sleazy's untimely death last year. There has been an immense loss in the musical world but with this release a more important chapter has now been begun: one of healing and closure. As codas go, this is a truly moving one, the lights flicker eerily in the East one last time as the brilliant vapor of a life spent in pursuit of uncompromising creation is allowed to leave the lodge and fly away from the shadow of the Black sun. Like doves released in the hopes of Peace, 'In Final Phase' lets all of us who remember and mourn have our moment of catharsis."
