Julian Cope - Fried (LP, vinyl rip). 1984.

One of the absolute psychedelic masterpieces of all times! 
   A few months only after the release of his first solo work ("World Shut Your Mouth", 1984), came this strange (what a cover!) psychedelic record with some acoustic space songs and some electric and semi-electric diamonds.
   Musician, writer, historian, and cosmic shaman Julian Cope was born in October 1957 in Deri, South Glamorgan, Wales. He formed the Teardrop Explodes one of the more influential bands of the late '70's playing a volatile mix of neo-psychedelic rock and electro-pop.
 By 1984, Cope's love of hallucinogenics -- as well as a toy car collection that occupied nearly an entire year of his life -- was at an all-time high. Despite his altered state, he released World Shut Your Mouth, his solo debut on Mercury Records.
   Not to be deterred, Cope retreated to Cambridge and recorded the follow-up, Fried, a chilling chronicle of self-oblivion that included cover art of the artist in a sandbox wearing nothing but a gigantic turtle shell. 




The spirit of Syd Barret is alive!

  2. Ξαναδοκίμασε τώρα... Το ανέβασα σε άλλο file hosting και προς το παρόν δουλεύει. Φοβάμαι όμως ότι μάλλον θα το ρίξουν κι αυτό λόγω copyright.
