Cocteau Twins reform!
« on: 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"

or something.  Look for deep meaningful lyrics here :)

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

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.
STRIKE !!!

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?
STRIKE !!!

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.

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.
