Through both his lauded work fronting the Commotions and his more eclectic solo efforts, Lloyd Cole established himself as one of the most articulate and acute songwriters of the postpunk era. When the group disbanded in 1987, Cole moved to NYC and embarked on a solo career. About a year ago, after almost a decade in self-imposed exile as a would-be folksinger, he developed an unexpected itch to return to Rock and Roll. The interacting with musicians, the camaraderie and the joy of hearing one’s music enhanced and elevated by the aesthetic of others, was something he just had to get back to. Never wanting to make records alone, Cole nonetheless ended up spending much of the 2000’s in a studio with just a bunch of equipment and a computer, or touring with a suitcase and two guitars. Two things made him realize that he needed to rejoin the fray; at least for a little while I had written some songs which demanded a beat, and I was having great fun with my new acoustic trio – The Small Ensemble. Why not make a rock(ing) record, or whatever it is that 49-year-olds make when they try to do that? So that is just what he did. The rest of late Winter and Spring was devoted to the recording of a new album, Broken Record with Cole’s first old school full band record in almost a decade. This winter, touring continues in as Lloyd Cole hones new tunes for a new release projected for 2013.
