His latest stance becomes a whole lot clearer once you read Huey Newton's Revolutionary Suicide and John Sinclair's Guitar Army. He clearly used those books in the same way a 14 year old metaller might use a Slipknot record- to fire himself out of a cannon. Trouble is, transplanting imagery from the late '60s into the 2010's isn't necessarily a smooth operation. Those were the sons of people who weren't allowed to use the same waterfountains as whites, or who were thrown in prison for years for possessing a half-finished joint. Coming from present-day Cope's lips this fire and brimstone seems a bit campy, which with Cope being Cope he's almost definitely aware of.

Anyway, still not heard this album yet but I'll get on it now that everyone's come round to it. I've always been one to turn up to parties so late that I get put on cleaning duty.
