Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1 was one of two albums attributed purely to a style called "moon music", which signified their change from a "solar" to a "moon" group. Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 2 is the sequel album.
The initial CD pressing was limited to 2,000 copies. Approximately 1,000 of those copies that were ordered directly from Coil include a certificate of provenance, numbered and signed by Peter and John.
The 12" version of this record features "edited" versions of the songs as they appear on the CD. It was released on translucent white vinyl in an edition of 500. "FOR YVES TANGUY" is etched in side A of the vinyl. "IT'S JUST A PHASE WE'RE GOING THROUGH" is etched on side B.
This album is currently available in CD format at Coil's official website, Thresholdhouse.com.
Piano on "Red Queen" is performed by Thighpaulsandra and is about the media spreading lies.
The spoken line on "Strange Birds" is taken from Aleister Crowley.
"The Dreamer Is Still Asleep" is about William Blake.
