Four Julian Cope Titles Remastered For Vinyl Reissue

The Teardrop Explodes was a post-punk band back in the later days of the ’70s. With two band albums released in the early ’80s before break-up, the band gathered unto itself a strong fan-base. When Julian Cope expanded his career with his solo path, the following gained by The Teardrop Explodes naturally scooted over to his music.

Since 1984, Julian Cope released over twenty-five albums and continues to do so. His last releases were Drunken Songs, and Rite At Ya, both issued in 2017. However, it is the classic era sets that fascinate and move fans to the greatest degrees.

    

On April 6, watch for four Julian Cope classic titles remastered for vinyl LP reissues that will include Saint Julian (1987), My Nation Underground (1986), Peggy Suicide (1991), and Jehovahkill (1992).  These are being produced in conjunction with Cope, Island, and PledgeMusic. The last two titles will be presented as 2LP reissues. You can even buy the entire collection as a bundled set.

First Two Julian Cope Albums To Be Reissued

Julian Cope was once an essential part of The Teardrop Explodes, a UK band of worth in the post-punk era of Rock and Roll during the late ’70s, early ’80s. After the band’s short-lived cycle, Julian Cope went on to make many note-worthy solo albums beginning with World Shut Your Mouth (1984), followed by Fried (1984).

On August 14, Caroline Records will reissue the first two in the Julian Cope library. Both World Shut Your Mouth, and Fried, are considered among the artist’s best releases. For this set of reissues, Caroline Records will provide 2CD sets with B-sides, BBC radio sessions, and more. Each set will be refreshed with new liner notes and photos from the period, along with a wealth of other important material.

These are UK exclusive releases. We hope that the US will follow up with domestic release other than making us rely on imported titles.
