HE played the best concert I was ever listen to! 2002 in Berlin, Quasimodo, round about 300 spectators ... and just him, his voice and a guitar - and he played from 22 pm up to 2.30 in the morning! Unbelievable! Gorgeous!!!!!! Still looking for that girl in the audience who did a recording of the concert with DAT-recorder!!!

If Lloyd was out fo the US Alt Country scene he'd be celebrated, in fact he's better than much of it. He continues to turn out relevant, mature music, lyrics dripping writh experience, even Lloyd had his hell raising, fucked up period. He's a bit of marmite guy, people either love or hate his voice, and not everyone appreciated his often pompous student angst writing, though he's got a lot more to draw on these days. Being fashionable is not his concern, he takes his job and his customers seriously, one of UK's most consistent and talented artists.
