Mr Cope has his moments, certainly back in the day. I think he would give Mark a run for his money. Mark aint as young as he used to be.
But what Mark has got to do with the 'teardrops' comment by Chordrider, I am not sure. If the toon playing was 'I Want You' then I would get it. Either way this is indeed a top top tune.
Mark E. Smith would beat the hell out of Julian Cope in a bare knuckles fight, though. Then ash his cigarette on him. That guy is intimidating... I thought he was going to jump off stage and kick my head in once at a show. Not much muscle, but much menace. Of course, at another show I saw him perform at he just absent mindedly examined his cuticles the entire time, and would drop the mic and go back stage at the end of his vocal parts. But yeah, great song.
