ARTHUR LLOYD'S SONGS

Introduction - Help - Songs - Credits

Repertoire of the Legitimate, Veritable, and Popular Comic Songs, sung by Arthur Lloyd before His Royal Highness The Prince Of Wales, The Nobility, and Gentry at St. James's Hall, & his popular concerts throughout Great Britain and Ireland, kindly sent in by Pat Wheatley - Click for details.Click image for a short biography on Arthur Lloyd'Being a swell or lion comique required more than making appropriate noises and drinking appropriate drinks - as Charles Norman sang in 1868 (in the Star of Bermondsey), So Much Depends Upon The Syle In Which Its Done. Dress and bearing were of central importance. The stage swell paraded all the apparatus of genteel apparel, though variation and distortion were common where the object was parody.

Thus Arthur Lloyd often performed in bizarre dress and make-up, sporting a coat with exaggerated lapels, an outlandish silk choker, and "a forty Cardigan power moustache"' - Popular Music in Britain - Music Hall Performance and Style - Open University Press. - Courtesy John Grice.
