Talulah Gosh – Backwash

Yesterday I felt so sad…
I lost my Pastels Badge

This is a world a million miles from today’s music. A world that is filled with anoraks, fanzines and enamel badges. Labelled as cutie, twee, with tra-la-la harmonies and by the standard of today’s music image spin doctors absolutely amateur.  Part of the endearing quality of Talulah Gosh is its shambolic amateurishness. They were formed in 1985 when economics student Amelia Fletcher and struggling artist Elizabeth Price met at an Oxford indie disco; both were wearing Pastels badges, and they decided to form their own group. Their shambling music style influenced Belle and Sebastian.  Backwash is a compilation of the complete recorded works of Talulah Gosh, it includes live recordings and radio sessions.
