    Default Cocteau Twins


    COCTEAU TWINS

    The other thread in this sub-forum is more specifically about the reunion-that-never-was in 2007.
    The "official" Cocteau Twins board sucks. So here's a thread on a more active board.
    Favorite song? Favorite album? Favorite video? The more recent happenings of Robin, Simon and Elizabeth, etc.

    Discuss!

    2005. Not 2007. What sucked too was they didn't fill the spot on the line up and it was sooo blank. I demand a redo.

    ah, the cocteau twins.

    in case you missed it, here's a wonderful interview with liz that sheds light on the whole inner workings of the band.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009...aser-interview

    here's a snippet



    Elizabeth Fraser: the Cocteau Twins and me

    For 18 years, she was the 'voice of God' in the Cocteau Twins. Now Elizabeth Fraser finds it too difficult even to think about her old bandmates

    The Cocteau Twins had been apart for seven years, the mystique they had attained during their lifetime gradually growing and their influence spreading, when the announcement came that they were to reform. The world was told they would be headlining the 2005 Coachella festival in California, and would follow that with a major tour. According to bassist Simon Raymonde, the band stood to benefit to the tune of 1.5m each for getting back together – enough to guarantee them financial security, enough to secure the future of Raymonde's Bella Union label.

    There was just one problem. Within weeks of the announcement, the group's singer, Elizabeth Fraser, announced she wouldn't take part.

    "I don't remember it being that much money and in any case that's not the reason [for reforming]," she says today, in her first interview since the band split in 1998. "But people get so fucking carried away. Even though something's staring you in the face, people just cannot see it. I knew it wouldn't happen and it didn't take long to want out."

    Fraser's decision to pull out of the reformation was made for the same reasons that contribute to the band's split in the first place: she could no longer face working with the group's guitarist, Robin Guthrie – her lover until 1993, and the father of her first child......

    Liz Fraser seems absolutely crazy in the best/worst way.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    A thousand times "Lorelei."

    Also, I think I like their early, gothy sound as much as their more ethereal stuff.

    I was devastated in 2005. I got over it. Now I'm revisiting my grief.
    It's all Robins fault. Why did he have to upset Liz so much that she would not want to see this chubby face ever again.

    Saw Liz last night. Absolutely spellbinding. She finished with Song to the Siren and I got goosebumps. Steve Hackett even came out and did a song with her. The new material sounded ace. Also, NEW MATERIAL!

    2 nights at The Royal Festival hall as part of Meltdown. Nothing else announced so far. And, yes, the dude from GTR (and early Genesis, obviously).

    So many fond memories of listening to Cocteau Twins as a teenager. I also had a friends-with-benefits arrangement with an ex-girlfriend in college who would often call in the middle of the night, and when I'd arrive she'd have records stacked on the turntable. Blue Bell Knoll was in heavy rotation. Ah, youth.
