Biography

Oxford, England (1986 – 1988)

Talulah Gosh was an indie pop/twee pop group which formed in Oxford, England in 1986. The band originally consisted of Elizabeth Price (vocals), Amelia Fletcher (guitar, vocals), Peter Momtchiloff (guitar), Rob Pursey (bass) and Matthew Fletcher (drums). Pursey left in early 1986 and was replaced by Chris Scott. Price left in 1987 and was replaced by Eithne Farry. The band split in 1988, with the Fletchers, Momtchiloff and Pursey forming the seminal twee pop act Heavenly in 1989.

Avatars of the British twee-pop movement, Talulah Gosh formed in late 1986 when economics student Amelia Fletcher and struggling artist Elizabeth Price met at an Oxford area club; both were wearing Pastels badges, and their common love for indie rock prompted them to immediately found their own group. Originally intending to form a variation on 1960s-era , neither of the aspiring vocalists had the time or energy to find compatible female musicians, so they instead recruited Fletcher’s 15-year-old brother Mathew on drums, her record-store clerk boyfriend Peter Momtchiloff on guitar, and Chris Scott on bass; Rob Pursey, who rounded out the initial Talulah Gosh roster, exited after only three shows.
