Recorded in 1984 at The Marquee London and interspersed with pastiche band shots.
The seminal, self-aware 1980s indie group Lloyd Cole and the Commotions perform at The Marquee London in the 1986 concert film. The scathingly ironic Brits, along with director Mike Mansfield, achieve one visually interesting performance movie.
Description by Music Video Distributors:
Formed in 1982 and signed to their first big record deal in 1984, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions were one of the most successful "indie" acts in the UK, and oft-quoted as influences to many other subsequently famous bands. Their knowingly pretentious lyrics and namedropping in songs endeared them to a generation of students - and for some time had the band vying with The Smiths in terms of popularity. Recorded in 1986 at The Marquee London, and interspersed with pastiche band shots, this excellent live concert was produced and directed by Mike Mansfield.
