This song is awesome. So summery and sinister and lovely.
Best song about strangling a pop magnate/artist ever?>
especially since british sea power's new stuff sounds so 80s psychedelic indie pop...
yet, I've been meaning to buy it though.
Any chance of filching some mp3s from you, dear boy?
cheers Tom. I've been trying to track down all his albums, some of them are hard to come by but I've heard tell they're all being re-released quite soon... don't know if that's true, though.
"Like A Motherfucker". Fuck yeah.
My Nation Underground
and that's it! i want more. i love him so much :)
is Copey at ATP?
This is a wonderful song. And it's great fun to tell Morrissey fans that Julian Cope is God. Not to mention absolutely true.
and he plays ace setlists at the moment. an example:
I'm Living In The Room They Found Saddam In
Peggy Suicide Is A Junkie
Jellypop Perky jean
O King of Chaos
Christ vs. Warhol
Upwards at 45º
The Great Dominions
Paranormal in The West Country
Las Vegas Basement
Julian H. Cope
Out of My Mind On Dope & Speed
The Greatness & Perfection of Love
the last show he did at a festival (this summer, he also did World Shut Your Mouth, Reward and Treason.
The older I get the more peevish and uptight Julian Cope sounds in all this wacky ideas. I don't doubt his work ethic but bet he's an utter control freak with no empathy or humour.
Autogedden was very very bad and a pointer of things to come and his live shows got longer and more and more self-indulgent everytime i went to see him to the point where i was bored shitless and walked out. His sleeve-notes got worse too - really sanctimonius stuff that would make Bono blush. I used to love this guy. Not anymore :-(
but now he's more of a cult thing and has less outsiders inspiring him to be a bit more poppy and outgoing its probably easier to fall into that sort of thing.
I put "Reynard The Fox" on in the Uni music library and garnered very funny looks. Buying more Cope is now a priority.
