The Teardrop Explodes…I love them! Don’t make me laugh. I love them! Fucking Julian Cope! Of course. I love his book…and (some of) his albums to…actually, I do like The Teardrop Explodes; but only because of Cope and his books and some of his albums and…you know what…as much as I love this album – and it really is fucking great by the way! – I guess I could have just missed it. Entirely. And that’s how it is. Depends when you’re born and such. But not even that. Depends on whether your eyes are open, and your ears too. And all that said, I’ve known about Cope, and loved Cope for a long time. And I’ve had some Teardrop Explodes comps and yet – here I am, just arriving… Holy shit, and all, this is a terrific album!
