Playing festival hall 6 and 7 August
y'know, before all yous were born. They were fantastic!
thanks for the heads up zahidf
I saw Cocteau Twins live twice - they were amazing. Once in Bristol, supported by Frasier Chorus. Miki from Lush was standing in front of me = +1 indie points. The other time was in Portsmouth with Seefeel.
Probably the closest I'll ever get to seeing Cocteau Twins. What will she actually be performing though? I've not heard any of her solo stuff, anything worth tracking down?
says she will do 75 min set - mostly her new solo LP, but also reinterpretations of a few Cocteau Twins songs
I wonder if my friend is still a member.
but this is a bit of an unknown isn't it? Performing mostly songs from an unfinished solo LP that nobody's heard, which are of a style not much like Cocteau Twins. I mean, I'm sure it's probably good, but still a bit unknown, ya know?
Just one of those bands that I never got around to listening to in depth.
Can't believe Head over Heels came out in 1983, and it took me this long. Great LP.
she varies between slightly out of tune and really horrific off key screeching. Which is a real shame, cos her recorded voice is incredible.
