Read full description of the books:
Fiction about rock and roll is almost always ridiculous. Non-fiction about rock and roll is almost always also ridiculous, particularly in the form of the memoir.
However, Julian Cope is slightly different, perhaps because his life story is so ridiculous that it's kind of hard to believe, whether in the fictional or non-fictional format, and yet it turns out that he speaks the truth, in a very strange and compelling way.
These two books, bundled together comprise the two-volumes of his rock and roll autobiography to date, and they're just about one of the most remarkable documents of rock and roll insanity (and that's not a word to be used lightly in this case) you'll ever read. If he was on the way to being barking mad before he started taking copious amounts of acid, can you imagine what happened once he got down off his anti-drugs high horse and started crawling around in the mud dressed only in a turtle shell? Exactly.
And yet, he also seems really quite sweet and normal. Just like everyone else, he gets up, makes tea, sits around the house. Perhaps not like everyone else, he also takes handfuls of hallucinogens, carves himself up onstage like a pumpkin with a jagged microphone stand, and has feuds with numerous 80s indie rock icons like Ian McCullough and Bill Drummond.
Some rock people make you wish you could be them. Julian Cope is not one of those people. Julian Cope is Saint Julian, living all the way out there on our behalf, frying himself into oblivion so that we might live and learn from his experience vicariously.
Best rock and roll read in forever.

Read information about the authorJulian Cope (born Julian David Cope, on 21 October 1957) is a British rock musician, author, antiquary, musicologist, poet and cultural commentator. Originally coming to prominence in 1978 as the singer and songwriter in Liverpool post-punk band The Teardrop Explodes, he has followed a solo career since 1983 and initiated musical side projects such as Queen Elizabeth, Brain Donor and Black Sheep. Additional to his own work as a musician, Cope remains an avid champion of obscure and underground music.
Cope is also a recognised authority on Neolithic culture, an outspoken political and cultural activist, and a fierce critic of contemporary Western society (with a noted and public interest in occultism, paganism and Goddess worship).
As an author and commentator, he has written two successive volumes of autobiography called Head-On (1994) and Repossessed (1999); two volumes of archaeology called The Modern Antiquarian (1998) and The Megalithic European (2004); and three volumes of musicology called Krautrocksampler (1995), Japrocksampler (2007) and Detroitrocksampler.
