Poll question: Battle of the Cryptic Bands: The Fall vs. Cocteau Twins
The Fall:

The red chicken claw in snow
outside `The Star of India" the
**Reminders**(crossed out) compounds ^ councils' lack of salt +
sand,
Reminds of past blunders.
The body's like a U.S. football players
blades make presence felt.
Worked 3 weeks nearly full solid
Got cut on finger from a steel tripod
There's a plaster on it and it will
soon heal over.
(double underline)>>And this day no matter what and never
(blotch)who fills baskets or who's just there<<
(single underline)>The whole Earth shudders.<
Who are the translators?
(wiggly underline)~You show me the bloody poor bores.
~And this day the surroundings are
~screaming on the roads~
So Y'even mistrust your own feelings
and In the greyer B-1 Glandel ares, here]
The few days I had off are just a bank
of fog. And this day seen from a glass.



****************************************************
Cocteau Twins:

Silly silly saliva
Sassy shear near
She should've
She sighed the grove
Ska pop
Sa pum
Sa po

***************************************************


Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Would have said The Fall before seeing their "Let's Soak The States"...
tour earlier this year.
Cocteau Twins by default.

6. I was tempted to break Smith's other leg
Honest, I never had expected so much and received so little. I saw the show for free and still felt cheated. Oh well, there's always the records.

3. Picked the Cocteau Twins, because I'm a big wussy boy
But as far as musical importance, it's gotta be The Fall. Mark Smith is one twisted fsck, which is why he's so utterly cool.

4. I've always loved the Cocteau Twins
but I am impressed that you can understand a word they sing. I've never been able to figure it out.

7. Wanna a good laff?
Try Googling "Cocteau Twins lyrics". You'd be suprised at what you find and the many interpretations.

5. Although I'm sooo gothic at heart sometimes...
I did vote for the Fall, 'cause I wanna be cool.

And "Frightened" from the "Witch-Trials" LP is still one of my favourite songs, 'cause I'm cool. I've seen the Fall 3 times and the Cocteau Twins 1 time. I'm really cool.

Who makes the Nazis?

8. The Fall, if for nothing more than their influence on some great bands
Especially At The Drive-in.
