The Complete Story Of Talulah Gosh! 29 Tracks! Sleeve Notes / New Interview By Everett True.
Talulah Gosh were an Indiepop group from Oxford and one of the leading bands of the twee pop/C86 scene, their name came from the headline of an NME interview with Clare Grogan. They 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, Mathew and Peter reappearing soon after as Heavenly.
