THE LLOYD COLE SMALL ENSEMBLE
Bestuhlt! - Freie Platzwahl.
Lloyd Cole and the Commotions released their debut 'Rattlesnakes' in 1984 to near universal acclaim and success. A few years later it made the New Musical Express 'Top 100 Allbums of All Time' list. The band released two more albums and toured extensively before splitting in 1988. LC then moved, albeit inadvertently, to New York City and released four solo albums, which were critically well received, sold reasonably around the world, but not the return on their investment that Polygram Records had hoped, and after only one hit single - 1995's 'Like Lovers Do' - in 1998 the artist and label agreed to part company. Since then LC has relocated to New England, releasing albums through various independent labels and continuing to garner critical favour while evading commercial radio play - his last two - 2003's Music in a Foreign Language and 2006's 'Antidepressant' were released through One Little Indian in N. America and Sanctuary in the rest of the world. Lloyd Cole and the Commotions reformed for the month of October 2004 to mark the 20th anniversary of 'Rattlesnakes', playing sold out concerts in Glasgow, Dublin and London. LC continues to tour the world as a solo acoustic performer.
