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.

10/10 The Dixter Customer review, 3rd March 2018

Of course Cope is a genius. Of course Cope is timeless. Of course Cope is a treasure. Of course Cope wrote the greatest book of all time. Of course Cope wrote the greatest songs of all time. Of course Peggy Suicide is his greatest most coherent achievement. Of course I haven’t heard them all. Of course that isn’t possible. Of course Cope is the funniest man from Liverpool who isn’t from Liverpool. Of course Cope is serious. Of course Cope isn’t serious all the time. Of course you shouldn’t believe everything Cope says (apart from the camo idea). Of course you need Peggy Suicide. Play it at yourself any anyone lucky enough to know you.
