never paid him much attention musically - liked the docu on standing stones and his interviews though 'Im mad me' was getting lame - liked the flying jacket - what have I been missing - is he worthy of my attention - has he done better stuff than Ian McCulloch - I liked the gold on blue cassette case - help me ?

He was once a total hero of mine, but I'm finding his act rather irritating of late, I must admit. Still, he's one of the good guys IMO, and his website's pretty good too.

Dr. C, Friday, 27 April 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Once upon a time, the man was capable of pristine pop greatness and twisted-id freakout bliss but all bets are off these days. Has anyone heard his new glam metal project, Brain Donor?

In any event,

SEARCH: PEGGY SUICIDE - Not only my very favorite album of Julian's, but one of my favorite albums of all time. It came out of left field at the ass end of the 80's to usher in a new "phase" of J.Cope that was both musically more adventurous and conceptually focussed. Brilliant from start to finish. As a second, SAINT JULIAN's polished pop represents his leather-clad narcissistic phase at its zenith, not least for the singles, "World Shut Your Mouth" and "Trampolene."

DESTROY: I can't say "everything since PEGGY SUICIDE," as that would be an easy, knee-jerk reaction, but it's tempting. Despite isolated tracks ("Fear Loves this Place," "Upwards at 45 Degrees," the simply sublime "Try Try Try," "Highway to the Sun"), but overall the albums have really dipped in the quality department, AUTOGEDDON being the worst offender to these ears. His last "proper" album, INTERPRETTER didn't do him any favors either. His grasp on sanity seems a bit more tenuous again these days, although that makes for amusing reading at the very least. His monthly bulletins on his website (www.headheritage.com) are always good for a laugh. Bless'im.

Alex in Nyc, Friday, 27 April 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Search -- _Peggy Suicide_, the autobiographies, _World Shut Your Mouth_, _Fried_. And various other goodies.

SEARCH- Jehovahkill. It's a difficult album to push on anyone who loves singles, but i adore this album. And yep, it's one of my all-time favorites by anyone. It feels like Autogeddon (it grew on me) and 20 Mothers(lots of cool singles?) are being "destroyed" more than i would expect, but oh well...

DESTROY- My Nation Underground. Yucko. Find Interpreter overproduced, but can live with it. I'm also afraid of Brain Donor, yet will purchase it anyway, as it might be so spectacularly bad that it will be great somehow.

Search - Jehovakill is the most pristine realisation of Cope's to date IMO. Destroy - pre-emptive Brain Donor critiques! I saw them play London at the Cornucopea weekend, if you can't rock then don't wear the frock. Watch out for them, they'll rock some bootie. And don't take life too seriously, "it's just a ride" (Bill Hicks).

morfe, Tuesday, 4 September 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Search : the truth ... Cope in every incarnation has excelled at what he has tried to achieve (MNU excepted). The new strains of Brain Donor are too 'true', too 'real' for a lot of people. For me it's some of the best. Everything is worth having ... most of it sublime beyond limits that other artists fail to approach.

Destroy: My Nation Underground

I say to Julian .... Ride On !!!

Tom FourWinds, Tuesday, 4 September 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Dunno what to destroy, but search "Reynard the Fox" whatever you do.

Search: having fans who write just like you! I have tons of time for Julian Cope actually - I was disappointed by the autobiographies, a little, but "Krautrocksampler" was a massive mind-bomb, and great fun to agree/disagree with when you start getting into the music (Amon Duul II better than Amon Duul I?? Julian, you rockist!!)

Long may he continue to entertain. Good value live too and when the records were good they were sublime.

I am not a fan of Cope's music, but I can't help but admire the man. He always makes me smile. I love his purple prose writings.

I notice the Wire describes how he took two acid tabs to celebrate (or get over) his 50th birthday. He took a dose of salvia this past summer ("the doors it opened took a very long time to close again"). As a result of which he has temporarily stopped driving his car: "he says he saw a wasp on the windscreen and tried to squash it with his finger, and inadvertently poked a hole right through the glass".

I didn't think the effects of salvia were that extreme.

A lot of posters seem to respect the man but slight the music. Which is fine, but I love the music to death. Sure, he's terribly uneven, but I'm a sucker for unadorned guitar pop perfection, and most everything he's released contains a couple classics (kinda like Robyn Hitchcock or GBV/Pollard in that sense). Seek the Julian Cope EP (w/ "World Shut Your Mouth"), Fried and Peggy Suicide for starters. And work out from there. A few favorites:

Reynard the Fox
Bill Drummond Said
Sunspots
Elegant Chaos
Head Hang Low
World Shut Your Mouth
Warwick the Kingmaker
Spacehopper
Jellypop Perky Jean
Hanging Out and Hung Up On the Line
Safesurfer
Head
Upwards at 45 Degrees
The Tower

And the Citizen Cain'd LP (I no) is pretty goddam great, as far as heavy-duty Stooges/High-Rise worship goes.

from alcoholism to fleshly concerns (contenderizer), Friday, 16 October 2009 20:58 (ten years ago) link

I really like the album "Interpreter". Maybe it's unfair to call it his Brit-pop album, but it does have some musical and production similarities with other albums of the time, like "Different Class" or "Denim on Ice". It's eclectic, well produced pop music that is very seductive because of the idiocyncratic author and some more interesting influences than most pop records at the time.

A lot of posters seem to respect the man but slight the music.

I realise that I wrote above that I'm "not a fan of his music". That was rather sloppy of me. I should have said that I've not yet gotten to know his music. I actually reckon he'd be right up my alley. So thanks for the recommendations. The Citizen Cain'd LP especially sounds perfect.

Duke, Friday, 16 October 2009 21:41 (ten years ago) link

He played a couple of solo shows in Italy last week and I'm told they were beautiful affairs (friend band Father Murphy supported him in Rome).
Cope on acoustic guitar, casiotone and piano, a lot of old and new favourites, including Teardrop Explodes stuff like You Disappear From View.

Citizen Cain'd is great. It includes two brilliant lengthy songs in a kind of perfected heavy ecstatic Neil Young vein: "I Will Be Absorbed" and "Feels Like A Crying Shame".

Contenderizer OTM- his every record has duds, but his way with a killer hook is too seldom noted.

If my memory isn't tricking me, I remember he also did a pretty fun interview on 'BCN when he was in town, which struck me as odd, as they were mainly playing Stone Temple Pilots and Candlebox round that time. He either played or had them play that tune that mentions Madonna and Courtney Love too, which the internet tells me is "Conspiracist Blues."

Autogeddon is amazing btw - I prefer it to Peggy Suicide if not Jehovahkill. So goddamn crazed and psychedelic - it's almost up there with Fried in terms of pure beautiful goofball madness, and it evokes a state of confused apocalyptic bliss - driving as the ultimate freedom as well as the means of damnation

"Try Try Try" is amazing because at that point he's clearly no longer interested in Top of the Pops but you just feel him saying "by the way, just so you know, I can still effortlessly produce incredibly hooky pop songs"

Teardrop Explodes at the time were Duran Duran level huge in the UK, no? He was pop pinup for sure. And World Shut Your Mouth was definitely in heavy rotation on MTV in the early 80s... also his My Nation Underground singles were constantly on Post-Modern MTV and 120 Minutes in '89 (how I first got interested in him), Island was definitely trying to make him one again.

Anyway, he did do TOTP. with Try*3 and he looked happy doing it. I think it was the last time he did the pop single hit thing, but hey.
