In November, Julian Cope’s epic COPENDIUM: An Expedition into the Rock n Roll Underwerld, will hit the shops. From Lord Buckley to Sleep, from Blue Cheer to The New Lou Reeds, in just shy of 800 pages COPENDIUM challenges all the rock n roll orthodoxies you have come to accept and indulge.
To mark this publication, Faber Social is taking Copendium on tour for three unforgettable evenings of entertainment put together and hosted by Julian himself. For details of gigs in Glasgow, Manchester and London on consecutive nights, click on the attached link to Julian’s Head Heritage site.
