Legendary English singer and songwriter, Lloyd Cole – lead singer of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions from 1984 to 1989, and critically hailed for his subsequent solo work – appears in conversation with Hawke Research Institute Director, Professor Anthony Elliott.

Reflecting on a career of wild and almost reckless eclecticism, Cole discusses music from his commercial chart hits - like Perfect Skin, Brand New Friend and Lost Weekend – to a global music industry transformed by Spotify. Lloyd Cole has been widely celebrated for his bookish songwriting, his brooding, witting intelligence and his self-deprecating humour- join us for this encounter with one of the UK’s most extraordinary pop musicians.

Lloyd Cole is an English singer, songwriter and musician. His latest album is Standards, released by Tapete Records. In 2014, Lloyd Cole is Visiting Fellow at the Hawke Research Institute, University of South Australia.

Professor Anthony Elliott is Director of the Hawke Research Institute, University of South Australia. His biography, The Mourning of John Lennon, has been widely critically acclaimed. His forthcoming book, The Routledge Handbook of Celebrity Studies, will be published by Routledge.
