Cousteau : Cousteau 2000

Cousteau is a hopelessly romantic, refined act whose musical aesthetic comes from the territories where the most sensually enticing, emotionally wrenching elements of Bryan Ferry, David Bowie, Scott Walker, Nick Cave, Jackie Leven, and even Tom Waits come together to reminisce, drink cognac, and weep.Cousteau are five british guys who adapt the sophisticated realms of edgy romantic pop into a hardy rock-band context. The quintet, the brainchild of Beirut-born songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Davey Ray Moor, debuted in 1999 with an eponymous EP. That release shot them into the spotlight, but the band wasn't happy with it and re-recorded most of the tracks for their self-titled 2000 LP on Palm.

Cousteau 2000
Sirena 2002
Nova Scotia 2005
Hey, hey what became of you
And change, had it changed your tune
How long you wade inside the swirling swirling pool
Just in your own way

For miles, miles now I've been led
These wild, wild things in your head
Lead me blindly down where angels fear to tread
Just in your own way

Now can you feel, can you feel a change
It's circled 'round, it's come back down again
But I'll no longer shower here in someone else's rain
Just in your own way

Now time gets the best of you
Of wine and celestial views
Keep me anchored, keep me sane
Keep me confused Just in your own way

Now you been lead, you been wildly spun
In rumours net, rumours I've become
Keep me shining in the artificial sun
Just in your own way....


1 Your day will come
2 The last good day of the year
3 Mesmer
4 Jump in the river
5 How will I know
6 (Shades of)Ruinous blue
7 You my Lunar queen
8 She don't hear your prayer
9 One good reason
10 Wish you were her
11 Of this goodbye

    Thanks a lot guys. The blog is also quite impressive. You guys had a lot of good stuff here.

  4. Im good mates with the vocalist of this band. They split in 2006, and he now lives in Australia with a debut solo album 'Lonely Road' in 2009, which is a great album.Its better by far than 'Nova Scotia' was, but different musically than the group Cousteau. Sirenia is an awesome album as well
