I've long been a devotee of Julian H. Cope, having being given cassettes of the first two Teardrop Explodes at the age of 10 (they're still absolutely priceless to me, those albums) so it's with much pride that I'm getting paid to review his new single. 'Preaching Revolution' is a 4 track red vinyl 7" EP full of neat, folksy protest songs stamped with the Archdrudes sideways political humour & social commentary. Once again, he's far too much of a legend in my childlike eyes to do much justice in the form of cyber text but if you're a fan, you'll find these marvellous sideways swipes at the powers-that-be cracking fun, the 3 short tunes on the 'A' side shining especially with a homely prowess he can surely call his very own. A perfect companion to the return-to-form that is 'Black Sheep'. Long live the gangly megalithic loon.
