Like a forest fire...
Lloyd Cole is an English singer-songwriter who started his musical career by joining the group "The Commotions" in 1984.
Group which will take the same occasion as "Lloyd Cole and the Commotions".
The first album of the group "Rattlesnakes" will be the main jewel of this ephemeral group.
Album from which will be extracted the flagship singles "Perfect skin" as well as the sublime "Forest fire".
Two other albums will be released thereafter, "Easy pieces" in 1985 from which the single "Lost weekend" with an honorable score will be extracted.
And "Mainstream" in 1987 with much more modest success.
A more modest success which will lead to the outright disappearance of the group and a reconversion towards a solo career for the artist.
He will release several albums with relative success including the title "No blue skies" of good quality.
Until 1995 when the single "Like lovers do" from the album "Love story" achieved a significant breakthrough in the Charts.
And it will be his last major success.
To discover or rediscover.
