Julian Cope presents Head Heritage


Brand new for February 2018, here’s Dope’s latest magnum opus DOPE ON DRUGS. Comprised of just three obstinate declarations, “Foden” opens the proceedings with five hectic minutes of JEHOVAHKILL-stylee Krautrock followed by the 20-minute epic Amon Düül 1-style chant “Leave Yourself Behind”, in which Hey Jude-isms lead avant-commune meditations into HAIR territory. No possible release for this baby on vinyl, however, as the final 27-minute-long “The Binding of Loki” is both too damn long and too damn bass-heavy – yes, kiddies, that’s two double basses you’re hearing high up in the mix – you’d never keep the needle on the disc if this was vinyl!
