Cocteau Twins

Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years

ume / fontana



4cd

Released: 12th Oct 2018

£22.99


This 4-CD set brings together the two albums the band recorded for Fontana along with B-Sides, EP s, Radio One sessions & the odd rarity.

There was perhaps a sense, after a while, that the world was taking The Cocteau Twins for granted. Late Eighties reviews had routinely described them as The Voice of God, yet 4AD, concerned that we’d get tired of appreciating the rarefied genius that shimmered in front of our noses, would keep reminding us that they were truly special. The irony was that The Cocteaus were themselves evolving, morphing, reconstituting & taking on new shapes. This wasn‘t widely registered at the time. It can be now, as The Fontana Years demonstrates a musical marvel which still makes your ears feel like they’re sucking citrus fruits after years of licking ashtrays, while the rings of Saturn crash-land in your front room.
