In case you didn't know, Current 93, Coil and Nurse with Wound are all bands that rose in the wake of Throbbing Gristle / Psychic TV in the late 70s / early 80s. Throbbing Gristle had created a kind of defiled psychedelia that all three bands stretched and redefined in their own ways, drawing on the esoteric Magickal lore of Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare and a host of other fringe figures, and pursuing a common interest in altered states of consciousness. Musically, although it could be claimed that Current 93 inspired a 'neo-folk' movement, and that Nurse draw on a host of Krautrock influences, all three bands are pretty much sui generis - they are their own genre.
My only criticisms of the book are that (1) Keenan sets the bar pretty high in an excellent polemical introduction, but this discursive style is quickly abandoned for a more conventional rockumentary narrative. (2) No discography - though I suppose this is forgivable, given the creative promiscuity of all three bands.
