THE LLOYD PACK is a project band of transplanted Englishman DAN MELCHIOR. This release follows the full length At Home With The Lloyd Pack (L'Espirit D'lescalier 2013) and the Know Your Lloyd Pack 7" (Siltbreeze 2012). The Lloyd Pack A Tribute initially emerged from a conversation Melchior had with GRAHAM LAMBKIN (SHADOW RING, Kye Records) about the prospect of doing a "Faux African" record. For two British-expats living in the U.S. in the twenty-first century, this LP offers a peculiarly whimsical variation on the "Faux African," infusing lo-fi tribal rhythms with post-punk dance in the spirit of early Adam Ant, Fun Boy Three and the Fall. If one were to imagine adding Ivor Cutler to this British-mix, it might approach what Melchior delivers on this LP. And for the record, Cutler is a Scot. Lambkin offered some vocal components, alongside a large cast (including the late LETHA-RODMAN MELCHIOR, ANGELA SAWYER aka PREGGY PEGGY, GNARLOS, NICKE HENNIES, LE ANN BACA BARTLETT, and JOHNNY BREWTON), all of whom chimed in on the recording process.
