Literate singer songwriter Lloyd Cole first stepped into the spotlight when Lloyd Cole & The Commotions released their effortlessly hip debut album ‘Rattlesnakes’ in 1984.  After two further albums of era defining jangle pop Lloyd went solo and decamped to New York. Resident in the US since ’89 Lloyd has released 12 studio albums that run the gamut from electric rock’n’roll to intimate folk via experimental electronica. His live show, coming to a town near you soon, is a wonder to behold. A wry charismatic figure on stage, a handmade Martin guitar in his hands, he delves deep into his peerless songbook of crumpled love affairs, killer melodies and literary smarts. Are you ready to be heartbroken?


“…a rocking, reinvigorated return…terrific” 8/10 UNCUT
“…captivating!” 4*  MOJO
“effortless craftsmanship from a gifted storyteller.” Q
“‘Standards’ is the work of a bristling, alive and fresh-as-a-daisy master, drawing on all of his experience for a mid-life career high.”4*  Daily Mirror
“…a sound replete with twisting, cyclical guitar lines and tints of keyboards… there’s a confidence and flexibility to his disparate themes…may be his best album.”  The Independent I
“…- like when Dylan went electric…it’s not a fanciful comparison – Cole’s lyrics are profoundly poetic and linked to some glorious tunes….terrific.”4*  Alan Johnson MP, BIG ISSUE
“…a vibrant set full of wry wordplay.” 4* Mail On Sunday
“…a fine advertisement for approaching the act of writing in a more contemplative way….wonderfully wry…self-knowing lyrics….a plangent beauty…” Sunday Times
“…ruminative, erudite, rueful…the rockiest thing he has done, but still very Lloyd Cole.” Mail On Sunday
“…gloriously, pertinently verbose…career-best…” 4*  Record Collector
“…a timeless classic.” 5*  Classic Pop
“…a little less commotion, but still a legend… just his acoustic guitar and a two-hour set of gorgeous pop songs…”  Bristol Post
“His voice is still beautiful. It sounds like threadbare velvet, stretched but rich at the same time…His lyrics are full of lust and longing, never overly romantic, but enough for you to realise that they come from a deeply complex man.” GodIsInTheTV
