: Cocteau Twins reform!
: Wils 02 February, 2005, 09:07:16 PM
...for the Coachella Valley Music Festival at the end of April and maybe (*hopefully*) more.

Unfortunately, the festival's in bloody California, so fingers crossed that they carry on and do a tour of Blighty sometime *really* soon. :)

"Mibitty boo mibitty boo.  Sash al fen oooonnnn"

Fantastic band and the music is so atmospheric....

the cocteu twins are an amazing band. if youre in any doubts just buy the album treasure.im looking forward to them reforming.

Treasure's lovely. Garlands is good too, but less pretty. And Sunburst and Snowblind is epic.

There's just one more track of theirs I like that's about 9 minutes long.

I can take or leave the rest of their oevre.

Three great albums and one obscure long track can't be bad though.

my favourite cocteu twin song is pearly snow drops. the first cocteu sing i heard and it blew me away.

Wils (and anyone else) - could you divine the title of the very long Cocteau Twins track to which I was referring? It's very repetitive and builds to the most amazing crescendo, and the lyrics suggest something like 'barking' and 'biting'. Does that ring a bell?

Wow!  The House of Love was my favorite band in the world for about a month when I was in college.

I might not be the only 33 year-old to say that.

pearly-dewdrops silly me i knew that wasnt the correct title:p

: Wils 02 February, 2005, 11:14:46 PM
It's not Tishbite off Milk and Kisses, is it?
: Re: Cocteau Twins reform!............
: House of Usher 02 February, 2005, 11:17:03 PM
So, um... Pearly Dewdrops' Drops. Is that the one I was referring to as well as the one doktor cronenberg meant?

Looking at their discography I'd say they'd peaked by 1984.

: House of Usher 02 February, 2005, 11:17:58 PM
Oh! New info. Maybe.  I'll hum you a few bars....
: Re: Cocteau Twins reform!............
: House of Usher 02 February, 2005, 11:20:31 PM
Tishbite

No. It was definitely something prior to 1988.

: raspberry reich 06 February, 2005, 06:22:32 PM
i heard a really good song by them on tv but cant remember the name. it was something like song siren

: Re: Cocteau Twins reform!............
: House of Usher 10 February, 2005, 05:40:03 PM
Thanks Janus, but it definitely wasn't Donimo.

That's all pretty and jolly, and goes

'la la la.... la-la la-la la-la la...'

The one I'm looking for is sort of angst-ridden and urgent, with drums, that goes

(Drums) Dun du-dun dun-dun-dun-dun
du-dun dun-dun-dun-dun
du-dun dun-dun-dun-dun

(Vocals) barking, biting, do de de doo doo
barkeeeeng biteeeng, do de de doo doo (repeat)

'It's All But an Ark Lark' (last track off Lullabies)

It's all for my kiss

Barking, bighting
Amongst ourselves
Barking, bighting
Amongst ourselves

It's all but an ark lark

It's all for my kiss

He's mocking both my lullabies
He's mocking both my lullabies
He's mocking both my lullabies
He's mocking both my lullabies

It's all but an ark lark
