Psychic Pop music at it´s finest. A great songwriter and a great singer tripping into a psychedelic universe where Syd Barrett really shines on.
Like Lennon he used his record to insult his former companion Bill Drummond and like MCCartney Bill Drummond answered with Julian Cope Is Dead on his post KLF (Folk)record The Man.
The Teardrop Explodes were not the Beatles but this record at least is better than all the solo work of Lennon/McCartney


My most played album of 1985. A treasure trove. I'm forever grateful to Julian for this one.

Hit the UK charts with a thud at #84, 24th November 1984 then dropped out of sight.
