 Rewind Festival warm up show & Rare full band date by Lloyd Cole...

 

'Burst on to the scene' is a horribly overused phrase but it's exactly

what Lloyd Cole and the Commotions did in 1984 with 'Perfect Skin',

'Forest Fire' and their era-defining album 'Rattlesnakes'. They went

from Glasgow clubs to stadiums in 18 months. Hits 'Lost Weekend' and

'Brand New Friend¹ propelled LP2 'Easy Pieces' to the upper reaches of

the album charts all over the world. One last album 'Mainstream' and

one last hit 'Jennifer She Said', and by 1989 they were gone.

 

In 1990 Lloyd Cole launched a solo career and has been making albums

ever since. In the early 2000s Cole retreated somewhat from rock/pop,

performing mostly acoustically, but his 2013 album 'Standards' took

fans, critics, and maybe even the artist himself, aback with its brash

electric rock'n'roll sound. It was universally acclaimed, Cole was

back on TV, and there was an undeniable demand for some electric band

shows. But there was no band. Cole contacted old Glasgow pals The

Leopards (Mick Slaven and Campbell Owens) and asked if they might like to play some shows...

supplemented by ex Commotion Blair Cowan on keyboards, Lloyd Cole and

the Leopards was born.

 

A headline slot on Later with Jools Holland was followed by a handful

of early 2014 UK shows culminating in a sold out Shepherd's Bush

Empire on Cole's 53rd birthday.

 

In 2015 a box set 'Lloyd Cole and the Commotions Collected Recordings

1983-89¹ was released to huge acclaim and sold out rather more quickly

than anticipated. In 2016 a second box of Lloyd Cole solo material is

planned. When the promoters of Rewind wondered if Cole might be

available to perform at their 2016 festivals... finally the time was right.
