This clip from the 1980s shows Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, doing “Brand New Friend”. Lloyd Cole is still one of my favorite songwriters, one that I think has been seriously underrated over the years. He’s still writing great music, as evidenced by recent albums “Antidepressant” and the even more recent “Broken Record”. He is currently on tour with a small ensemble, and if you get the chance to see him live, I’d jump on it. You can check his weblog for dates and venues: http://www.lloydcole.com/ .
