  3. Drew McDowall – A Thread, Silvered and Trembling


Scottish Electronics musician Drew McDowall was a key member of the legendary COIL group from the UK in the latter half of the 1990s whose seminal ritual drone masterwork  "Time Machines" was re-performed by him in SF and overseas in 2018. Drew kickstarted the evolution of Coil from avant pop into a complex psychotropical methodology, referencing an occult touchstone to their modular sound cluster excursions.

McDowall now returns to the Bay with an adventurous live project based on “A Thread, Silvered and  Trembling” his newest June release on Dais which transforms Drew’s mood driven vision of a displaced  neo-industrialized music as enigma and invocation into a summoning of  shrouded strings, shaken shudders, and disembodied voicings.  These elements elevate audio alchemical states into surreal conjurations  of electro acoustic texture and preeminence not confined by any singular musical genre.  Something different this way comes.

From growing up with punk gangs in  the 70’s Scotland he migrated to Glasgow where he started the Poems band with then wife Rose McDowall of Strawberry Switchblade. Then after interweaving  with the ranks of UK avant-gardists Genesis P-Orridge and Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson from Throbbing Gristle and David Tibet of Current 93  he eventually collaborated with Psychic TV and later in the more recent Brooklyn years with  Hiro Kone, Caterina Barbieri and Kali Malone along with countless others.
