Track Listing : 1. Perfect Skin Lloyd Cole — Speedboat Lloyd Cole —
I went to Glasgow University to study English literature and philosophy, and in my second year, before dropping out, I formed Lloyd Cole and the Commotions. Being in Glasgow amid the [pioneering indie label] Postcard scene was influential. Orange Juice were our heroes.
My idea was to be some sort of male Aretha Franklin, but then the five of us realised we could make this distinctive noise together. Between and 84, we went from being a wimpy band who sounded like the Style Council to more of a rock band.
Lloyd cole and the commotions
Not one song on Rattlesnakes was more than a year old when it was recorded. Many of the songs are based on a year I spent in London studying law, when I was 18 or The landscape for the album was my imagination.
I stumbled on a way of creating an image with very few words. Similarly, Simone de Beauvoir represented modern feminist thinking.
Charlotte Street is actually Upper Street in Islington, but it sounded lovelier. It was very exciting. Then Perfect Skin came out, Radio 1 played us, we did Top of the Popsand we never played an empty room again.
I was playing with Alan McGee when a friend told me that this English guy had borrowed his Portastudio and was writing fantastic songs. Lloyd was different then, awkward and gauche.
He had an encyclopedic knowledge of pop music. We had black girl singers and were trying to be a soul band, when Bobby Bluebell interviewed us for a Glasgow magazine.

Most of us were on the dole, which gave us time to create. I woke up one morning with the riff for Rattlesnakes in my head. Getting Paul Hardiman as producer was incredibly exciting. One night, the rest of the band wanted to go for a curry, but I wanted to put more guitar on Forest Fire.
