Julian Cope presents Head Heritage

Queen Elizabeth

Released on Prince Charles' birthday, this first album from November 1994CE caused a big split in press opinion. The Wire praised it loudly, whilst NME called it 'execrable'. Nevertheless, the Real Heads bought it in droves just for its two huge 30-minute pieces of environmental ambience and sleeve, which features Thighpaulsandra flying through deep space on an ARP synthesiser.
