Skellington 3 by Julian Cope continues in the tradition of its two predecessors (1989’s Skellington 1 and 1993’s Skellington 2, in case you were wondering) by containing a bunch of songs that were recorded very quickly in loose, rock ‘n’ roll kinda way. Also, like the two previous albums in the series, the cover features a photo of the arch drude looking suitably fried. CD on Head Heritage.
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.
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.
