The Cocteau Twins
This was my introduction to The Cocteau Twins back around late 90's. In the Napster days I'd pulls samples from all the different bands I'd never heard but always wanted to and make mix discs out of them. If I dug the stuff I'd go out and buy the record. I used to call those mixes Satan's Discoteque Volume whatever. Some of them were pretty good, I'll have to post a couple here at some point. Anyway, these were the two songs by Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie and Will Heggie that I downloaded first and totally at random. Talk about 100% accuracy, as not only do I still think these two songs - which open and close my favorite Cocteau Twins record, Heaven or Las Vegas - go great together, but either one of them would be strong enough to have make me a life-long fan, which I am.
