Lloyd Cole and The Commotions - Forest Fire (live in London 1985)

I have had a couple of requests to repost this but I had lost my own file and I've had to transfer again from vinyl.
Its taken from an old NME free ep "Drastic Plastic" in September 1985.
This particular ep featured Prefab Sprout, Style Council, Robert Cray and the Lloyd Cole and the Commotions track Forest Fire. Details of all the other free eps can be found here.

Lloyd apparently has no memory of this when I asked about this on his weblog he replied "Was it really 1985?? I thought it was '84.. No memories, I'm afraid. Who else was on it? Was it Billy Bragg??"

James Yorkston: New CD

James Yorkston has been constantly playing on my iPod for the past few weeks as I belatedly discovered him via the BBC TV folk progammes. The new cd "The Year of the Leopard".
is another collection of folkish tunes that insinuate into your unconscious the more you play them. He comes from Fife and is part of the wider "Fence Collective" based in the East Neuk of Fife. Reviews of the new cd can be found at The Guardian and Drowned in Sound.
Various tracks can be streamed from Domino Records.
Two links below to tracks available via James's MySpace site.
