Certain Songs #954: Lloyd Cole – “Don’t Look Back”

Album: Lloyd Cole
Year: 1990

After Mainstream, Lloyd Cole broke up The Commotions, moved to New York City, grew his hair long and started recording his first solo album with a bunch of ringers.

Said ringers included known quantities like former Material drummer Fred Maher & ex-Voidoid Robert Quine, who first intersected on Lou Reed’s Legendary Hearts album, as well as Commotions keyboardist Blair Cowan. Oh, and on bass and backing vocals, Matthew Sweet, who was still a year away from taking essentially the same band and making the immortal Girlfriend.
