They should have been contenders. The Lloyds had everything, except for a major recording contract. Now, Liberation Hall is set to correct this historical injustice with the announcement that the label will release Attitude Check on the 23rd June. The album is a brand new compilation which gathers what amounts to the band’s never released debut album (nine studio tracks) alongside an additional eleven pristine live cuts captured on the band’s home turf in 1980. The label have also released And That’s Why (I Don’t Like You) as a digital single.

From 1979-1984, the Lloyds filled venues in San Francisco and beyond. Fronted by vivacious redhead Lulu Lewis, a powerful vocalist in the tradition of Debbie Harry and Gwen Stefani, this power pop quintet was regionally famous for their energetic live shows and radio-friendly songs. Attitude Check presents for the first time on CD the full tracklist for last year’s Let’s Go, Lloyds! vinyl compilation released by Projectile Platters. Liberation Hall also expands the running time with seven previously unreleased soundboard recordings captured live by KALX deejay Terry Hammer at the Old Waldorf in 1980 and newly remixed by Mick ConleyAttitude Check is presented as part of Liberation Hall‘s Sounds From The San Francisco Underground series.
