Our classic Talulah Gosh compilation album! As heard recently on Tim Burgess' Twitter listening party. Talulah Gosh were a guitar-pop group from Oxford and one of the leading bands of the twee pop movement/C86, taking their name from the headline of an NME interview with Clare Grogan. They supposedly formed when Amelia Fletcher and Elizabeth Price, both wearing Pastels badges, met at a club in Oxford. Formed in 1986, their original line-up comprised Amelia Fletcher (vocals, guitar), her younger brother Mathew Fletcher (drums), Peter Momtchiloff (lead guitar), Rob Pursey (bass) and Elizabeth Price (vocals). Rob left early on, to be replaced by Chris Scott. Elizabeth left in 1987 to be replaced by Eithne Farry. They called it a day in late 1988 with Amelia, Matthew and Peter reappearing soon after as ‘Heavenly’. Amelia and Rob went on to form Tender Trap and released the 2012 album ’10 Songs about Girls’. They currently perform as The Catenary Wires Peter Momtchiloff went on to join Would-Be-Goods and The Hot Hooves. 2 Eithne Farry is an author and likes a glass of sherry Elizabeth Price won the 2012 Turner Prize for her video installation “The Woolworths Chior of 1979” This compilation brings together all of their recorded output, plus the two BBC sessions and the four tracks which appeared on the demos EP in 2011. The CD includes a 24 page booklet featuring sleeve notes and an interview with the band by Everett True. TRACKLISTING 1. Beatnik Boy 2. My Best Friend 3. Steaming Train 4. Just A Dream 5.
