A 1978 gig favourite, this song gave the group
The Cocteau Twins their name.
It was based on two out-and-out gays who
Jim once stayed at a flat with. He'd just read a book of
Jean Cocteau's plays which included Les Enfants Terribles and he related it to them.
It was recorded for the band's second demo tape.
The opening chords are similar to the opening chords of The Sex Pistol's Holidays In The Sun.
Featured throughout 1978, the song was toned down, given a new lyric, and
appeared as No Cure on the
Life In A Day album.
The lyrics have never been published.
