Julian Cope’s Album of the Month

Since May 2000CE, the Archdrude has dispatched monthly reviews of one-off classics by obscure artists (German Oak, Todd Clark, Sir Lord Baltimore) and obscure classics by great artists (Black Sabbath, Miles Davis, Alice Cooper). This decade-long quest has also led readers on an exhilarating journey through the contemporary underground music scene. Following in the footsteps of his seminal books Krautrocksampler and Japrocksampler, ALBUM OF THE MONTH continues to unearth evidence of rock‘n’roll’s sustaining ability to transport us.
