"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 (AMI047) 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. Lambkin offered some vocal components, alongside a large cast (including the late Letha Rodman-Melchior, Angela Sawyer aka Preggy Peggy, Gnarlos, Sarah Hennies, Le Ann Baca Bartlett, and Johnny Brewton), all of whom chimed in on the recording process. Dan Melchior has put out dozens of records in the last decade under multiple guises including the Broke Review, Dan Melchior und Das Menace, under his own name and in collaboration with artists as diverse Billy Childish, Holly Golightly, Russell Walker, The Spits etc., and has emerged as one of the most unique voices in American outsider rock and experimental music." - Amish.
