Lloyd Cole - Triskel

Lloyd Cole - Triskel Arts Centre - Sept 5th
Thanks Anne for pointing this one out. Following his recent sell out show at Vicar St, Dublin, Lloyd Cole returns with a 7-date solo tour of Ireland this Autumn
Having come to the fore in 1984 fronting The Commotions and racking up hits like Perfect Skin, Brand New Friend, Lost Weekend, Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken? and Jennifer She Said, Lloyd moved to the States five years later to pursue a solo career that has seen him develop his distinctive song-writing across a range of styles from orchestral pop to edgy rock – sometimes on the same record, as with 1991’s Don’t Get Weird On Me Babe.

Through it all the quality of his writing – always literate, peppered with cultural references and laced with humour – has remained beyond question. In 1995 he scored a minor hit with Like Lovers Do from the album Love Story, co-produced by Stephen Street, desk jockey of choice for the likes of The Smiths and Blur.

Since the turn of the century he has explored a largely acoustic setting for increasingly folk-inspired songs, as heard on albums such as Music in a Foreign Language (2003), Antidepressant (2006) and Broken Record (2010). Last year, he released Standards, his tenth solo album and only his second since 1995 to feature a full band of additional musicians, including power pop godhead Matthew Sweet and sometime Lou Reed drummer Fred Maher.

Tickets are €25 available from the venue.

    Really enjoyable. Acoustic show from one of the finest British songwriters and it was nice to hear some great 80s favourites played so tunefully. Drive on Lloyd.

      Hi James. I don't know to be honest. There is some still available on line at this stage so there could be if it doesn't sell out beforehand. It might be worth a phonecall [masked]) maybe. I'd imagine you could buy over the phone and just pick it up when you get there.
