Having just turned 30, Four-Calendar Café, was the first of two Cocteau Twins albums previously released via Capitol Records in the US.
Like most Cocteau Twins works before it, Four-Calendar Café was recorded and produced by the band, this time at their September Sound studio on the banks of the Thames in West London. A beautiful yet bittersweet record featuring the singles “Bluebeard”, “Evangeline” and “Summerhead”, the band manifest maturity and fragility in equal measure and while Liz’s lyrics remain cryptic, they’re more intelligible here. Complete with a memorable design of inanimate objects by the I Spy children’s book creator Walter Wick, Four-Calendar Café still stands tall going into its fourth decade.
