Lloyd Cole will bring the gloriously electric sound of his new album 'Standards' to life early next year when he plays some shows with cult group The Leopards as his backing band. The Leopards are a rock band fronted by guitar-slinging Glasgow legend 'Fast' Mick Slaven, who cites Link Wray, The Voidoids and T Rex as his touchstones. These shows will be the first gigs Lloyd has done with a band since he hit the road with the re-formed Commotions in 2004.
Says Lloyd: "The Leopards make a perfect primal rock'n'roll sound. Mick Slaven is a genius. Add me and my songs, shake, and it's the dirty martini of dreams. Mine, anyway. I'm (simply) thrilled."
