Drew McDowall (ex-Coil) (SCOTT)
Drew McDowall is probably best known as a member of the legendary outfit Coil, and has also been a regular player in Psychic TV. McDowall’s influence on their music is unmistakeable. His electronic approach, integrating metallic and reverberated percussive ambient drones can also be found on his 2 solo albums released on Dais Records. As a solo performer, he delves into the arcanes of modular synthesis and stays faithful to the deep, esoteric and intense sonic regions explored by the 2 afore-mentionned acts. The meditative drones and abstract sound patterns, sometimes augmented by sampled cut-ups have become a trademark for his brooding and essential sound
