...And the Ambulance Died in His Arms was an album recorded live during Coil's performance at All Tomorrow's Parties on April 4, 2003. This album was the last planned release by Coil before the death of John Balance. When the release was announced, Peter noted that Balance had already selected the title.


A version of "Triple Sun Introduction" and "Triple Sons and the One You Bury" using the audio from this performance was reworked and released on The Ape Of Naples.

"A Slip in the Marylebone Road" is a true story about John Balance being mugged and losing his "precious green notebook."

"The Dreamer Is Still Asleep – The Somnambulist In An Ambulance" is one of the more improvised live recordings of Coil's performances. The song is a version of "The Dreamer Is Still Asleep" from Musick To Play In The Dark Vol. 1.
