C'mon, someone must've downloaded it...

Kicking myself for leaving the office and going boozing before the link email came in last night.


Similar situation. I downloaded Rock Section but when I tried to download Last Tango I had to request a link to my email. By the time I got home and tried it, the thing had been taken down (managed to get a couple of listens at work through Bandcamp afore it disappeared).

Rock Section is very cool though - it does work as a conceptual piece (for the purposes of the novel) but it even works as a Cope song - sounds like a Peggy Suicide b-side that never was.
Funny though, no matter how Cope tries to make something sound un-Cope, it only becomes MORECOPE! The wa-wa, Stooges one-note piano and there's even what sound like some brief Mellotron stabs in there.

What I love about this one though is how he manages to resurrect his post-punk Teardrops voice for the vocal section.
Good stuff, one of the most unique things he's done in ages.


....or is it
