Lloyd Cole

Thu 2 February 2017

Lloyd Cole was the ’80s pop star with the coolest literary and film references in his songs and he was recently in Australia, touring his stellar back catalogue from younger days.

Barry Divola gets him to go back even further, as Lloyd shares stories about growing up on golf courses, standing up for his love of glam rock in the school playground and borrowing from his mum’s wardrobe when he went through a punk phase. He plays T. Rex, Chic, The Sex Pistols and more.

Listen Back.
