Essential introduction to Cope and the Teardrops,
By A Customer
This review is from: Floored Genius: The Best Of Julian Cope And The Teardrop Explodes 1979-91 (Audio CD)
This album has been in a way superceded by the "Leper Skin" compilation, but is different in that it includes six classic Teardrop Explodes songs. All the tracks were picked by Cope himself and give a good (almost) chronologial overview of his career from the Teardrops' Kilimanjaro to Cope's 1991 masterpiece Peggy Suicide, with plenty of brilliant proper pop music along the way. So: 80 minutes of top top music, great sleevenotes and pictures and stuff, BARGAIN!
