Talulah Gosh - Was It Just A Dream

DAMAGED GOODS

  • £22.99


Talulah Gosh were a guitar-pop group from Oxford and one of the leading bands of the twee pop movement/C86. 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 currently perform as The Catenary Wires. Peter Momtchiloff went on to join Would-Be-Goods and The Hot Hooves.  
 
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.
