One for the Pinefox/Bellefox. Discovered while perusing the Jon Hassell website, in the section on his appearances on other records:


L l o y d C o l e — M a i n s t r e a m
1987
Polydor
The less said about Lloyd Cole, the better. JH on one track, Big Snake.



and not content with that jibe, there's:


T h e K r o n o s Q u a r t e t —W h i t e M a n S l e e p s
1987
Nonesuch
As a consolation for Lloyd Cole horror, The Kronos Quartet finally recorded Hassell's 13-minute string piece Pano de Costa which they commissioned in 1983....



Actually I don't mind Lloyd Cole at all. In fact (whispers) I was quite fond of Rattlesnakes and even bits of the album that followed it. Incidentally, in the new issue of Uncut, Cole declares that Kraftwerk's Computer World is his favorite album of all time (ought to earn a few brownie points with K-Punk) and nominates Lexicon of Love as his guilty pleasure, while reviling The Stone Roses (more brownie points from K-Punk!).
