There are some videos on YouTube of ex-Coteau Twin Liz Fraser playing some recent live gigs and doing a bunch of Twins' songs, supposedly in support of some new solo project. I watched a brief clip and I have to say it was awful to say the least.
As much as I love Liz' voice and CT, she has a lot of nerve playing these songs. She was the reason CT disbanded in the first place. After she left she slagged them off like she didn't want to be associated with the name ever again. CT were offered an astronomical amount of money to briefly reform for a show at Coachella and Liz refused to participate, disappointing her ex-bandmates Robin Guthrie (well, her ex-husband as well) and Simon Raymonde, who were more than willing to do it, and the fans. She's a strange bird with issues, that's all i can say about her personally. At least the other two are normal.
The cynic in me is saying the money's running out and she needs to make an album now and sell something, and what better way to make a buck than start doing your old songs (that's another issue: the other two wrote the music!). I don't have much respect for this at all. Robin Guthrie is a real artist and never went out on the road and rehashed CT songs. When her solo album fails miserably she'll probably be begging the others to reform. If I were them I'd say kiss my ass, you had your chance.
Straight up, peace out (from a hardcore CT fan, from the heart)
