Issued for the first time as a DVD collection, the videos of Julian Cope and Teardrop Explodes display some seminal moments of genius and English pop/rock history. This collection tracks ten years in the life of Julian Cope, through times when he burnt out, rose again, burnt out, and then rose again - showing why he got the epithet "flawed genius". Beginning with his work as part of legendary UK rock band The Teardrop Explodes and continuing onto his highly successful solo career - the DVD charts the extraordinary musical and personal journey that Cope experienced during the period. Many believe that he was a weirdo pretending to be normal - but the theory of a normal guy pretending to be sub-normal and displaying genius is more than borne out by the contents of this DVD.

Wow! Havn't seen this for donkey's years

If you have been a fan and follower of "Saint Julian" over the years as I have then this is an absolute must! Although Cope himself had little regard for the pop promo video this collection contains a rare gem, a video who's imagery actually works with the music. I am of corse talking about "Lauging boy". And it's worth the cover price for that alone. Not to mention "Reward" which is one of the greatest pop songs ever committed to vinyl.
This video compilation has been out production for a number of years now and I for one am overjoyed to see it back in circulation. It's interesting also to compare this early work with his new album "Black Sheep".
Quite a career, quite an interesting C.V., musician, poet, author and antiquarian.
So to wrap it up, if you are a CopeHead you really ought to treat yourself .
