Concorde2 are proud to welcome Julian Cope -a singer, poet, occultist and photographer- who has enjoyed a 30-year career in the rock business, and is described by his Bloomsbury book publishers as a 'visionary rock musician and musicologist, hip archaeologist and one-time front man of the Teardrop Explodes'. During that time, Cope has released over 20 solo albums, countless collaborative projects, and six acclaimed books, including his autobiography HEAD-ON and the much-lauded KRAUTROCKSAMPLER.
Cope began his career in 1977, as bass player in the short-lived Liverpool punk group The Crucial Three, alongside future Echo & The Bunnymen singer Ian McCulloch, before forming the Teardrop Explodes in late '78.
From 1982, a brief wilderness period ensued, during which he remained indoors for long periods, and it was during this time that Cope's legendary FRIED album was released. In the late '80s, however, Cope made his welcome return to the charts with the single 'World Shut Your Mouth', and album SAINT JULIAN, which was followed in the '90s by such acclaimed albums as PEGGY SUICIDE, JEHOVAHKILL and AUTOGEDDON. Cope has recorded three albums with his proto-metal power trio Brain Donor. In October 2007, Cope's JAPROCKSAMPLER was released to critical acclaim, and in May of the same year, his new album BLACK SHEEP was released to tremendous acclaim, and has since formed a band of the same name. +Support Anton Barbeau
