Is that personal, or does the undeniable class of early 80s masterpiece Rattlesnakes pass you by.

Come on altogether now

"She looks like Eva Marie Saint in On the Waterfront"

"Read Norman Mailer, or get a new tailor"

Pretentious Lloyd? :D

I bought Rattlesnakes when it came out and I've still got a soft spot for it. I was seriously considering going to the Barrowlands gig at one point, but then I forgot all about it :? Did anyone go?

I'm not (too) embarrassed to admit I saw them at the Barras. I was abroad and too young at the time to realise they were a pretentious student band :wink:

The gig was very enjoyable and people seemed to be having a good time, and if truth be told, I still enjoy listening to Rattlesnakes now and again.

Although the Herald review might be overstating it a bit: "Rattlesnakes ? musically, if not always lyrically ? sounds both timeless and peerless. Only REM and the Go Betweens or their contemporaries could have written such a tight set of guitar pop songs." :shock:

it's not personal really....i just always found him to be a boring up his own ass type crooner with little or no ability to write anything interesting.

totally never got it.

maybe i was reacting against my brother (he really liked him)

i class him in the same league as terence trent d'arby (i.e. crap)

sorry...hope this didn't seem like an outburst :)

Is this not the "Rattlesnakes" album reunion gig? If so i was at the original one about 20 years ago in a dingy wee nightclub in Glasgow and they were terrific. Neil Clark is an inspired guitarist.

I was at the Barras on Tuesday. Not Mr Cole's biggest fan but always had a wee soft spot for him. It was a top gig, opened with rattlesnakes. Definitely got my moneys worth (free ticket) and I was standing beside Mr G Love (and talking pish to him as I was drunk!) oops! :oops:

FWIW it was excellent. Two things it highlighted were: the quality of some of the songs post Rattlesnakes. Brand New Friend, My Bag, Mr Malcontent,
Jennifer She Said were all highlights; and just how good guitarist Blair(?)
was on the rockier numbers.

It wasn't all great- for every Perfect Skin there's a Sean Penn Blues, and the momentum was lost in the middle but...for a band who haven't played together for 15 ys twas ace.

2004 the year of the comeback- Pixies, Duran Duran :oops: and now Lloyd Cole.

It was also the politest, oldest crowd i've seen at a gig. But everyone clearly enjoyed it. :D
