Scots-domiciled 80s crooner Lloyd Cole has collborated with Hans Joachim Rodelius – founder of Krautrock acts Cluster and Harmonia.
The result, an electronic /ambient-oriented-album entitled ‘Selected Studies Vol.1’ is out now on the Bureau B label.
The coming together of two such disparate talents was apparently facilitated by a friend of Cole’s who on hearing 2001’s instrumental solo album ‘Plastic Wood’, spotted similarities to Cluster’s ‘Sowieso’ long-player from 1976 and sent a copy to Rodelius. The rest, as they say, can be heard below.
