As I said mate, when he bothers to drag his arse up this way :smt012

Yeah none of the gigs are local enough, one day though, I should see him and get round to owning more than about four or five albums by him, I like the Cope, a man who speaks more sense than most in the rock'n'roll industry I'll tell ya!

Yeah not sure either of us would see ourselves as militant, but yeah, that's what I mean cool guy with a lot to say.

Like I say I lack a serious cope collection, but to me Peggy Suicide was a damn fine album, I love that 'Soldier Blue' and seemingly it was all the Poll Tax stuff that got Cope more 'Militant' as you say


cheers mate

Thanks for that review Jim, I'm still discovering Cope... did he play anything from Jehovakill?

Yeah he was on those Poll Tax marches. Fried (his first solo proper one) always gets me. That said the BBC sessions are very special. Skellington Sessions are pretty cool - he basically hired out a recording studio for a day with some rough song ideas and got his mates to turn up with any instruments they owned and recorded an album - sounds pretty good. One talented mofo!

Agreed, that's when I first got into the Dude, used to have the poster of him in the turtle shell
that came free with the album up on my bedsit wall, great album, first heard it on Janice Long, I think.

Hee hee - was going to make a similar comment. I'm almost positive my next gig is Cope again at the Leadmill. And then I think the only thing I have tickets for is Richard Hawley at the Engine Shed. I've been a bit busy with work to get my act together recently

Actually now I'm thinking about it - Penetration on the 12th @ Brudenell or in Nov @ Fibbers.

I have to be in the right frame of mind for The Fall. Was at a party in Manc last night and half a dozen of them beggered off to go see The Fall at the Lowry. By all accounts the recent gigs have been rather good - so I might be leaning towards going now.
