Celebrating the July 2019 release of his latest album, Guesswork, Lloyd Cole visits Cadogan Hall as part of his UK/Ireland tour: From Rattlesnakes to Guesswork.
Lloyd collaborated with three other musicians on Guesswork, most notable of whom are two former bandmates – guitarist Neil Clark and keyboard player Blair Cowan – who found themselves working together on an album with Lloyd for the first time since The Commotions’ swansong Mainstream in 1987. However anyone expecting a Commotions sound will be on the wrong tack: Guesswork is predominantly an electronic album. Lloyd, Blair Cowan and another long-time Lloyd associate Fred Maher have fashioned the Guesswork sound from classic and modern keyboard, modular and drum synthesizers, though guitars played by both Lloyd and Neil Clark do feature.
Lloyd’s ear for a melody, his lyrical smarts, and his unmistakable voice ensure these songs stand shoulder to shoulder with anything he has previously written.
Age limit/recommendation: Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult.
