Lloyd Cole and the Commotions: Live at the Marquee (1986)
4.0 of 5 from 1 ratings
Formed in 1982 and signed to their first big record deal in 1984, Lloyd Cole and the Commotions were one of the most successful "indie" acts in the UK, and oft-quoted as influences to many other subsequently famous bands. Their knowingly pretentious lyrics and namedropping in songs endeared them to a generation of students - and for some time had the band vying with the Smiths in terms of popularity. Recorded in 1986 at the Marquee London, and interspersed with pastiche band shots, this excellent live concert was produced and directed by Mike Mansfield.
