Lloyd moved to London in 1976, to study at Central St Martins College of Art. Whilst still an art student, he played guitar in punk bands the Fauves and the Brides of Christ before singing in an early incarnation of The The with Tom Johnson and Peter Ashworth. In the late 70’s Lloyd worked on the Snips album 'La Rocca’,[1] with Chris Spedding, Midge Ure and Bill Nelson, writing one of the songs, "Happy Sometimes". After recording the album, Lloyd was asked to sing live with Suzi Quatro on the Michael Parkinson Show at the BBC. Uropa Lula In 1980 Lloyd formed Uropa Lula with Hilde Swendgaard (Manager) and Kevin Smith (drums), making two short films, ‘Here in the Sun’ and ‘At Night Time’ with Video Active. They were joined by Colin Prior (bass) and Peter Fromm (keyboards) in 1981 and began performing live in London, opening for John Cale, Alternative TV and Depeche Mode. American bass player Allan Dias, replaced Colin Prior in August of the same year and Leeds born drummer Andrew Edge joined the group in October.
