Lloyd Cole and the Commotions formed in 1982 when Lloyd, born in Buxton, Derbyshire, was studying English and Philosophy at Glasgow University. In Glasgow he met keyboard player Blair Cowan and guitarist Neil Clark and later drummer Stephen Irvine, and bassist Lawrence Donegan, who had just left local band The Bluebells.

They signed to Polydor in '84 and their debut single "Perfect Skin" lit up the nation's radios. The dazzling debut album Rattlesnakes more than fulfilled their promise, littered as it was with hip literary references, cutting wit and sophisticated pop melodies. Subsequent singles "Forest Fire" and "Rattlesnakes" and sell-out shows around the country announced in no uncertain terms that a cool, literate new band had arrived. NME has listed Rattlesnakes in its Top 100 albums of all time.

Says Lloyd Cole: "1984 was our year. Everything seemed easy. Everything went wonderfully. After that being Lloyd Cole and the Commotions became increasingly difficult, but I'm really glad we made the music we did. I can't imagine a band I'd rather have been the singer in."
