Julian Cope Rarity

by on March 12, 2007

I was going through some stuff at the weekend, and found a CD I bought in the Los Angeles from a shop in Melrose several years ago. Fans of Julian Cope will of course spot why it found its way into the bargain bin with a hole punched through the barcode.

If you’re not a fan, the clue is that the back cover art is supposed to say “That’ll be the deicide” (a typical Copeism, like “floored genius” and “Jehovakill” – the name of the album itself). I bet somebody was pretty furious at the time. I wonder how many they pressed before the plant was told to stop?


Big fan of the Cope… I think my favourite still has to be Ye Skellington Chronicles. Saw him live once were he came on stage wearing Y-fonts, yellow wellys and a a police jacket.
