Description

This reissue of the Cocteau Twins039 1993 album has been remastered by Robin Guthrie and is pressed onto high quality 140g vinyl.Cocteau Twins vocalist Elizabeth Fraser, guitarist Robin Guthrie, and bassist Simon Raymonde formed in Grangemouth, Scotland in the late 70s. The brainchild of Guthrie and original bassist Will Heggie, by 1981 they had added Fraser and the following year signed to 4AD, one of the most illustrious of the indie labels. With Raymonde replacing Heggie in 1983, the trio went on to create some of the most unique and otherworldly music of the 80s, built around Guthrie039s chiming guitar and Fraser039s unmistakable soprano.By the early 90s, the group had just released their most successful album, the commercial Heaven or Las Vegas, but the relationship with 4AD was coming to an end. Mercury imprint Fontana was going through something of a purple patch, signing former underground bands, and by 1992, Cocteau Twins had joined The Fall and the House Of Love.The group039s debut album for Fontana, FourCalendar Cafe, was released in October 1993. Its gossamer melodies and largely upbeat pop bely the turmoil the group were going through. Barney Hoskyns, writing in Mojo, said that FourCalendar Caf was 34the most poignant, heartrending Cocteaus record of all, an album of naked confession and raw beauty . . . Sadness never sounded so luscious.34 Simon Raymonde agreed 34I think in time people will realise what a great album FourCalendar Caf is. Because I think it039s beautiful.34 Led by the single Evangeline, the reached No 13 in the UK album chart and is muchloved by fans.
