Cocteau Twins reform! ....

Recommended Posts

:D But only for one gig. That's in California. In term time.

So all and all pretty pish then :down:

REUNION UPDATE

The positive response to the reunion announcement has been incredible, and is much appreciated. (Maybe absence does make the heart grow fonder?)

However, due to the large flood of e-mail received following the announcement to play a live gig at the 2005 Coachella Festival, it's necessary to clarify a few things, at least as they stand now:

Cocteau Twins have agreed to play only one live performance30 April at Coachella.

There are no plans for a live tour or album following this reunion show.

No one has said "never," but it's important to clarify that the band have only agreed to do this one performance and have not discussed the possibility of collaborating beyond that. The band met last week, in person, for the first time in eight years, so please understand there's no "big agenda" happening just yet. One step at a time, right?

Rehearsals for the Coachella show will probably begin in April. Some of you have asked if there will be "warm-up" concerts to prepare for the actual gig in California, and all we can say is, "possibly." That information would be premature, to say the least, as those types of things are often arranged last-minute, anyway. If it happens, we'll let you know.

Finally, the full on-stage lineup for the 30 April performance will be Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie, Simon Raymonde, Mitsuo Tate (guitar) and Damon Reece (drums).

What album is Tinderbox off Steve?

Head Over Heels. The only one I've got (bar Milk & Kisses). And that Chameleons' track is called Seriocity.

hmmm

I know for a fact TITP are talking to them ...

you rotter. Why not release this information when tickets were available?

Mind you, a muddy field surrounded by chattering pleasure seekers is the last place "the voice of God" should be heard.

Even if they were announced, the legion of Japanese businessmen that form their hardcore fanbase would only catch wind of it, and the prices would increase Five Ten Fiftyfold. I could sell a kidney, but then they could sell a Tamagochi factory
