by Lloyd Cole
Released: Jan 1984
Label: Capitol Records
Superb guitar pop classic from the literate Englishman and his Scots band. Both Cole's songs and the Commotions' jangle-rich folk-rock guitar sound have an open, airy mid-1960s feel to them without being "retro" (touches of Dylan, Cohen and the VU abound). Rattlesnakes stands proud next to Aztec Camera's High Land, Hard Rain and the Smiths' debut.
