You love him or hate him
on 4 November 2008
You either love him or hate him or just go off him.
Like an express train Cope is the master chameleon forever changing direction and sense of purpose. As he says he likes to be a "Cultural Irratent". Like a naughty public school boy. Most of the time hes on a blinkered crusade, always intresting and not always palatable. None of his thirty or so CDS are the same in any context WHAT SO EVER all are diverse and varied. If you like one you can't count on the next being in the same vien.
His topics are diverse and controversial and delivered with pasion although how much of this is part of his stage act I'm not sure. Although its obvious he is highly intellegent and articulate with a razor sharp wit.
His fans are a menagerie of as the tilte says Black Sheep, deciples to his cause.
His music is at best confussing on CD but it comes alive and textured as a live performance.
Give the CDS a miss and do your self a favor go see him live its the only way to appreciate this Guy ans his music.
I prommise you a night of entertaiment, 3 hours of singing, banter, philosophy, dancing, satirical statments, current affiars, campaigns, playing with the audience.
It will change you life and peerception
