More Info

Lloyd Cole & The Commotions – Cole, Blair Cowan, Lawrence Donegan,
Neil Clark and Stephen Irvine – were formed in Glasgow in 1982, where
Buxton-born singer-songwriter Cole was studying Philosophy and English
at the University of Glasgow -Their sound swam against the tide of shiny
80s synthesisers, offering intense, melodic, guitar-based pop, topped
with droll words packed with literary references
Given just how loved debut album Rattlesnakes was, it would have been hard for
whatever followed to be received as warmly – yet Easy Pieces made a good frst
of it. It was to sell twice as many copies in its frst two weeks as Rattlesnakes
had to date, giving the group a Top 5 chart placing on its release in November
1985. Recorded with 80s super-producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, its
frst two singles, the brooding, gospel infuenced Brand New Friend and the
forever-jaunty Lost Weekend reached the UK Top 20.
This re- issue faithfully replicates the original 1985 Polydor Records UK release
with printed inner sleeve and is pressed onto high quality 180g vinyl using the
artist-approved 2020 remaster
