LLOYD COLE & THE COMMOTIONS RATTLESNAKES Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
Rattlesnakes (1984) is the debut album by British group Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, featuring their debut single "Perfect Skin", "Forest Fire" and "Rattlesnakes". The album reached number 13 in the UK Album Charts.

The album was recorded during the British summer of 1984 in The Garden studio in Shoreditch in east London (built and owned by former Ultravox frontman John Foxx), with Paul Hardiman producing. The album cover is a picture by renowned photographer Robert Farber which was chosen by design company Da Gama from a selection of stock photographs.

Cole described the songs on Rattlesnakes as "about the things people do when they are in love. People get in all sorts of weird scenarios and I quite like the idea of that. I write about that more than anything. Sometimes it is comic, sometimes tragic, sometimes funny and tragic at the same time.

Hailed as one of the finest debuts of the '80s, Rattlesnakes is without a doubt a College Rock masterpiece of smart, ironic lyrics and sympathetic Folk-Rock-based melodies.
