Q – lloyd, would you be kind enough to tell us if you were friends with morrissey circa 1984/85 or so?

A – He came to see the Commotions when we played an NME show on Tottenham Court Road in London, mid ’84. He was as charming as you’d imagine. We were friendly for a year or two, he changed his phone number pretty much every month, I would have needed to pester his PR to keep in touch. I wasn’t about to do that. I haven’t seen him in almost 20 years.
