Julian Cope shot to fame with 'Teardrop Explodes' at the height of the punk movement. Since then he has made over 20 albums and produced the work of countless new musicians. He wrote and self-published two books, Krautrocksampler and Head-On, both of which achieved cult status. He has also written Reposessed and, most recently, The Modern Antiquarian, which has established itself as modern classic. Cope continues to make music and is considered a pioneer of the rock genre today. He regularly performs at festivals and concerts across Europe. His latest project, 'The Jehovacoat Demos' is released in March 2011. He lives in Avebury, Wiltshire.From Library Journal:
Cope's two-part autobiography, here bound together as one book to the delight of many fans, does not rely on tales of drug abuse and severe mood swings to hold the reader. Part 1, Head-On, first self-published in England in 1994, recounts Cope's struggles and eventual coming to grips with his status as a British music icon (he lead the Liverpool New Wave band the Teardrop Explodes). Part 2, Repossessed, details Cope's solo years and, strangely enough, his vicarious telephone travels with Echo and the Bunnymen drummer Pete de Freitas across America in the 1980s. With their casts of detailed characters, who take on literary qualities, both tales provide insight into the birth and growth of the British postpunk scene. Cope's transformation from a kid searching for acceptance to a rock star content with the search for self-understanding begs for a concluding third part.
