Video: Elizabeth Fraser plays Cocteau Twins, new songs at first-ever solo concerts

Over the past week, former Cocteau Twins frontwoman Elizabeth Fraser played her first-ever solo concerts — and first full performances of any kind in 14 years — with a trio of shows in the U.K. that delivered, as promised, a mix of Cocteaus material with new arrangements and brand-new solo material from an anticipated album.

Fraser and her backing band performed an 18-song-set last Saturday at Bath Pavilion, which served as a warm-up to her performances on Monday and Tuesday at the Antony-curated Meltdown festival at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Below, we’ve got the setlist to the Bath show (via Adrian Masters), which reportedly was the same set played at both Meltdown appearances.
Plus, check out the assortment of fan-shot video of varying degrees of quality from the two Meltdown gig — apparently tight security at Bath made it near-impossible to film — that we’ve culled from the depths of YouTube and also assembled below.

Setlist: Elizabeth Fraser, Bath Pavilion, Bath, England, 8/4/12
1. “Bushey”
2. “Bluebell Knoll”
3. “Suckling the Mender”
4. “About Ship”
5. “Cherry Coloured Funk”
6. “Charade”
7. “Oomingmack”
8. “Make Lovely”
9. “Enoesque”
10. “Donimo”
11. “Pitch The Baby”
12. “Metal”
13. “Athol-Brose”
14. “Frou Frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires”
15. “Golden Air”
16. “Underwater”
17. “Pearly Dewdrops Drops”
18. “Song to the Siren”

You should have just posted this in The Cocteau Twins thread...I think it's good security made it near impossible to film. It's so annoying seeing everyone with their phones recording the whole show in the front row. It should happen at every gig.

wow, Pearly Dew-Drops Drops and Song to the Siren to close out the set. I'll bet those were worth the price of admission alone
