Julian Cope
Jehovakill

While Peggy Suicide debuted the “mature” Julian, this three-sided follow-up went all-out, with the emphasis on the ‘out’. Largely inspired by Krautrock, Jehovahkill captures all the intensity and variety of that genre, from eccentric acid folk to full-on psych bombast. The subject matter takes in stone circles, Christ, and the repression of pagan culture. Arguably his finest hour, and a great place for the uninitiated to dive in.

Julian Cope
My Nation Underground

Cope’s fourth LP may have marked something of a dead end to the first part of his solo career, but it’s not without its charms. Taking Funkadelic, Sly Stone and 60s garage rock and psychedelia as inspirations, the album includes covers of The Vogues’ 5 O'Clock World and Someone Like Me by The Shadows of Knight. The highlight is undoubtedly the single Charlotte Anne, but difficult sessions couldn’t entirely hamper Cope’s exuberance and inherent melodicism. Worth checking out if you like its better-selling predecessor, Saint Julian.

Julian Cope
Rite At Ya

Rite At Ya is a collection of 4 monumental cosmic jams from the Arch Drude, Julian Cope. It’s the 5th in the series of Rite albums, which he began putting out in the early ‘90s. The music contained here dates from 1993 to the present day. This will swallow you whole and spit you back out. A thoroughly worthwhile experience after trudging through the daily grind. CD only on Head Heritage.

Dope (Julian Cope)
Maxi 12

Dope is a new band from Julian Cope (it would be with a name like that wouldn’t it?), dedicated to that wild wild psych sound. Dubby-electronicsy-world-rock-guitar hybrid music, featuring a song actually called ‘Drugs 7”’. Oh Julian. This debut statement from the group is presented as a Maxi-Single, though it is the length of a short album. Vinyl release on Environmental Studies.

Julian Cope
Drunken Songs

Julian Cope is an acknowledged expert in the field of intoxicated music enjoyment, so this album of drinking songs, Drunken Songs, is very welcome. There is a song written for Cope’s own funeral, a song called ‘Liver Big As Hartlepool’, and a big 20-minute jam to close out the album, as is traditional. CD release on Cope’s own Head Heritage label.

Julian Cope
Peggy Suicide

Cope’s seventh album marks his reinvention and the beginnings of his Arch-Drude persona. Having moved away from attempts at chart pop with the understated home-recorded albums Skellington and Droolian, this sprawling double LP showed a more ambitious and fully-formed new direction. The songs are politicised, dealing with environmentalism and the then-recent poll tax riots, and imbued with a feminist perspective. 60s psych and garage rock influences are given free rein on the likes of Safesurfer and Drive, She Said, while Pristeen and Beautiful Love see Cope launching into pop with a renewed sense of idiosyncratic purpose.
