17/4/15 – Ian McCulloch starring Elizabeth Fraser – Candleland – 1989

It seems that Fraser and Buckley developed a very close relationship during the time they spent together, in awe […]

It’s difficult to discuss This Mortal Coil without mentioning Elizabeth Fraser and Robin Guthrie’s version of Tim Buckley and Larry Beckett’s masterpiece, Song To The Siren. Although it appeared on This Mortal Coil’s 1984 debut album, It’ll End In Tears, the single version was released a whole year before the album in 1983. The version […]

Dead Can Dance’s Host Of The Seraphim appears on the soundtrack to Ron Fricke’s beautifully shot non-narrative documentary film, Baraka.
