THE TEARDROP EXPLODES Released Debut Masterstroke ‘KILIMANJARO’ 40 Years Ago Today

10 October 2020

Band: THE TEARDROP EXPLODES (Liverpool)
Active: 1978-1982
Album: KILIMANJARO – debut LP
Released: 10 October – 40 years ago today

BBC Music: “Knowing how troubled was the genesis of Kilimanjaro it’s
amazing that something so perfectly formed emerged. Like Love’s ‘Forever
Changes’ it inhabits a strange alternative universe that seems to have little
relationship with contemporary sounds. For that reason alone it remains
timeless.”

The Guardian: “LSD lover and Princess Di eulogiser
Julian Cope was once almost sunshine pop’s golden boy.”

Julian Cope: “I get twitchy if I don’t pick up a guitar or sit at the
piano every now and then… I have to do it; I don’t have a choice.

Turn Up The Volume: “Don’t shut your mouth, Julian”.

‘Peggy Suicide’ By JULIAN COPE – Probably His Best LP Ever Released In 1991

Old and new albums to make your day…

‘Peggy Suicide’ by JULIAN COPE
Released: 22 April 1991 / seventh solo LP

ALL MUSIC wrote: “Casting the ill-advised attempts at too-clean modern rock from his late-’80s days firmly aside and fulfilling the promise of Skellington and Droolian, Cope on Peggy Suicide produced his best album to date, overtopping even his Teardrop Explodes efforts. Showing a greater musical breadth and range than ever before, from funk to noise collage — and more importantly, not sounding like a dilettante at any step of the way. An absolute, stone-cold rock classic, full stop.” Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here.
