Lloyd Cole & Weinglas in Hamburg

Last year I went to Berlin to perform with Roedelius. My friends at Basic Electricity kindly invited me to perform the same week, solo, my solo debut making electronic music… I was certainly very nervous and certainly out of tune much of the time but l suppose it couldn’t have been all bad because Cathy from Elbphilharmonie was there and she subsequently invited me to perform in Hamburg, my songs one night and electronics the next.
Trying to figure out a way to perform said electronics, without backing tracks or computers, I concluded that I needed at least one other performer to alternate with me while I attempt to remove myself from the last piece and prepare to construct the next one…
I should note here that I am not improvisational. I have no interest in going on stage and ‘winging it’. I will have 5 prepared pieces, each piece will have possibilities which I will explore…
I have asked Weinglas to perform with me and he has accepted.

Weinglas does interesting stuff. I’ll be there.

Wow, both of you! I’ll be there!

Wish I could get there for this!
