Rattlesnakes (Deluxe Edition)

The 1984 debut album from Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, Rattlesnakes introduced one of the most literary of singer-songwriters who name-checks authors from Norman Mailer to Truman Capote on the album.

A success in the U.K., the album yielded the hit singles 'Perfect Skin,' 'Forest Fire' and the title track. The Deluxe Edition collects four additional songs from an expanded edition and now 14 more recordings, among them demos and performances on BBC radio and on stage, including at the famed Marquee club.
