Hotel Grashoff / Cocteau Twins

Double goodies discovered today :

It is always cool to be lucky enough to find a good copy of the first Cocteau Twins (Garlands – 1982) album on the Intercord Label for just 2 euros at a Fleamarket.

Liz Fraser really does have a haunting voice, but I just love the echoey bass on a lot of these early 1980’s post punk albums. How do they get that sound ?

On the same journey we discovered this charming Hotel that has been closed since 2006 and is still in a remarkably good condition. Check the “before and after” pics.

I always wondered why people have to smash toilets and sinks once they get inside these buildings but this is because they are trying to get at the copper piping. Shame about the ballroom too, great sized gig venue.
