Concert: Lloyd Cole amazed Parisian public.
Posted October 9, 2013 by william

Passages too rare Lloyd Cole in the capital still provide these exceptional events . For us, it is above all the talent we find exceptional. Former British pop -rock star of the eighties , which led for over twenty years towards a more folk music, made a stop Sunday at the Maroquinerie to the delight of his Parisian fans . A concert solo and acoustic allowing us once again to go enjoy the sublime powerful voice and captivating a handsome man assumed the fifties.

The man deserted the labels and traditional channels of music production for a long time to try to keep the greatest possible independence. For his latest album Standards, however, production rested in part on the label Tapete Records. It is interesting to note that in addition to Lloyd himself , another part of the production was also provided by his fans . They have had the opportunity and privilege to acquire Deluxe collector boxes containing the album itself but also outtakes , handwritten lyrics , and all this before the official release . This album marks a small break with his previous Broken Records , using a new recipe that mixes electric guitar and keyboard sound with a little less country . An album that hits if we judge by the very warm welcome that the music press gave her .

The evening at the Maroquinerie is organized in two parts , with a between - act twenty minutes to allow everyone to go to eat. Lloyd, with ease , came into the room through the same door as the public. He obviously greeted fans who lined up in tight rows in the same place as a Bieber groupies , missing, agitation and cries less. Despite a sold-out concert and a packed room , everyone, big or small, has managed to find a small area with a good view of the stage to enjoy the artist.

The first set about 50 minutes alternates rather old songs like Rattlesnakes that returns us a split second our high school years . The acoustic interpretation of this piece makes it even more beautiful, and shivers are soon to cross our body. The songs keep coming one after the other between - gently cut by some often funny comments Lloyd . This offers us a fun , finesse and humor tone, acquire latest album are calling it much better than just Rattlesnakes ! He even encourages us to discover the illegal downloading and only buy if we find it good! Lloyd has not provided merchandising for leather goods , evidence that does not try to force our hand !

After a short break and a glass of white wine later , the concert will always return with the same sweetness and a very present feeling. Comes a particularly funny when Lloyd remembers the making of the video for the song Butterfly which was held in Paris now. And Lloyd added: " the worst day of my Entire Life" and about the director himself : " I will never forgive him ." He continues with this piece in a particularly brilliant performance , even if ultimately the whole concert seemed excellent. He will be remembered especially the ballad It's Late After the last album that is beautiful, powerful and catchy . Our regret is probably not heard Undressed remains one of our favorite pieces of Lloyd

Concert: Lloyd Cole enthralls Parisian audience.
Posted October 9, 2013 by William

Lloyd Cole’s all too rare appearances in the capital always provide an exceptional charm to these events. For us, it is above all his talent that we find exceptional. The former British pop -rock star of the eighties, who for more than twenty years has aimed towards folkier music, stopped by the Maroquinerie last Sunday to the great delight of his Parisian fans. A solo acoustic concert which allowed us once again to enjoy the magnificent, powerful and enchanting voice of a handsome man at peace with being in his fifties.

The man deserted the labels and the traditional channels of music production a long time ago to try to keep the greatest possible independence. For his latest album Standards, however, production relied in part on the label Tapete Records. It is interesting to note that in addition to Lloyd himself, another part of the production was underwritten by his fans. They had the opportunity and privilege to acquire Deluxe collector boxes containing not only the album itself but also outtakes, handwritten lyrics, and all this before the official release. This album marks a small break with his previous Broken Records [sic], using a new recipe that mixes electric guitar and keyboard with a little less of a country sound. An album that hits the bullseye, judging by its very warm welcome from the music press.

The evening at La Maroquinerie is organized in two parts, with an intermission of twenty minutes or so to allow everyone to get something to eat. Lloyd, with ease, came into the room through the same door as the audience. He of course greeted the fans who lined up in tight rows in the same place like Bieber groupies [we call them Beliebers in Canada—tr.], at least with less jostling and screaming. Despite a sold-out concert and a packed room, everyone, big or small, managed to find themselves a small area with a good view of the stage to get full enjoyment from the artist.

The first set of about 50 minutes alternates fairly old songs like Rattlesnakes that bring us back to our high school years in a quarter of a second. The acoustic interpretation of this piece makes it even more beautiful, and it didn’t take long for a few shivers to cross our body. The songs keep coming one after the other, gently interspersed with some often funny comments from Lloyd. He suggests to us in an amused tone, with finesse and humour tone, that we buy the latest album, rightly characterising it as much better than Rattlesnakes! He even encourages us to find an illegal download and only buy if we find it good! Lloyd has not set up a merch table at La Maroquinerie, proof that he does not try to force our hand! [or that there was no YI, hélas—tr.]

After a short break and a glass of white wine later, the concert picks up where it left off, still with the same sweetness and very real feeling. A particularly funny moment comes when Lloyd remembers the making of the video for the song Butterfly which took place in Paris. And Lloyd adds: "the worst day of my entire life" and about the director himself: "I will never forgive him." He segues into this piece with a particularly brilliant performance, even if ultimately the whole concert seemed excellent to us. We especially remember the ballad It's Late from the latest album which is beautiful, effective and catchy. Our regret is probably not having heard Undressed, which remains one of our favourite of Lloyd’s songs.

Title: undressed

Hi

Thank you for your report. I'm glad to read about Undressed. I would have been happy too to hear this song too. But as a woman I didn't dare to ask for it ! and for people who did'nt know this title it may have sound crude !
