Lloyd Cole is a wimp, one of those British wimps with the high cheekbones and a strange voice that always seems to be an acquired taste for males and an instant attraction for females.
Even wimpier, not only does he read a lot, he writes songs about reading a lot. On the other hand, he is far more palatable than say, The Smiths’ Morrissey, probably because doesn’t foist his persona and ideals on the general public. Nope. He just locks himself into a little room and writes these neat songs that stay in your brain forever.
