OUT NOW!

Julian Cope's Copendium

Available initially in a limited and highly collectable edition (see below) - with a standard edition due in November 2012.

Copendium comprises a collection of album reviews and themed track samplers taken from Cope's popular Album of The Month feature at Head Heritage, laying out an alternative history of the last six decades of popular music. The result is a feast of obscure and neglected masterworks; Krautrock, motorik and post-punk, stoner and doom metal, occasionally even jazz, spoken word and hair metal.

The box set will contain a beautiful leather-bound book (every copy signed and numbered) plus 3 CDs compiled by Julian and produced by ACE Records, which are designed to be listened to whilst reading.

Psychedelic Revolution  HH25   Moseley  3

Belated news as usual, but Head Heritage recently announced the release of Julian Cope's latest album, Psychedelic Revolution. The first of two scheduled releases for this year, it features 11 songs spread out over 2 cds. Described at Head Heritage as:

"PSYCHEDELIC REVOLUTION, the first of two albums of Julian Cope songs for 2012. Gone temporarily are those massed percussion Black Sheep workouts of recent years, replaced across PSYCHEDELIC REVOLUTION’s two half-hour-long CDs by eleven epic examples of the Archdrude’s most scrupulously-written balladry. Listen to those fucking lyrics! And as CD1 and CD2 are dedicated to Cope’s two most politically intense heroes and heroines – Che Guevara and Leila Khaled – listeners will be right to expect the always fiery intensity of the Archdrude’s performance. Expect tales of insurrection, tales of building new cultural traditions and tales of sexism, racism and even species-ism. Yes, both intellectually and sonically, this is a record to engage deeply with the listener’s unconscious. And with its massed banks of Mellotron 400, wah-acoustic guitars, oboe and brass, this new Cope album is one to Send You Under again and again.

PSYCHEDELIC REVOLUTION features chanteuse Lucy Brownhills taking lead vocals on the title track, and arrives with a 16-page booklet chock full of new political art and poems from the Archdrude. Dig PSYCHEDELIC REVOLUTION and look out for its sibling REVOLUTIONARY SUICIDE later this year. It’s 2012, fuck yeah!"
