Julian Cope's highly acclaimed autobiography and its long-awaited sequel in one extraordinary volume. Julian Cope shot to fame with eighties band 'Teardrop Explodes' during the Punk era. Hailed as a visionary by those people who recognise his genius and a madman by those who find him perplexing, he has become a cult figure in the music world. Head-On/Repossessed is written in Cope's own inimitable style and follows his journey through a time of incredible change within the music industry. Head-on is the highly acclaimed autobiography that The Observer viewed as "book of the year" when it was first released. Repossesed picks up in 1983 where Head On ends and continues up until 1989.

Promotional Information

Julian Cope's highly acclaimed autobiography and its long-awaited sequel in one extraordinary volume. Sales and Marketing: / The release will be supported by targeted communications to key music fans via Julian's own website and the ThorsonsElement website / Serialisation is currently being negotiated. / Julian is undertaking a music tour in Sept 2004 and has plans to appear at the Royal Festival Hall in Jan 2005. / Julian is currently preparing a TV series based on The Megalithic European, published by Thorsons/Element in October 2004, which will generate additional media attention. / Head-on has previously only been available via 'Head Heritage' Julian's own company. It received astounding reviews when it was released in 1994 "Visceral, ballsy, bitchy, brutal, beautifully written. Book of the year. Made my heart burst". The Observer "! an enthralling saga of bitchiness, betrayal and unrepentent debauchery." The Sunday Times (Books of the Year) " As a glimpse of the essentially pathetic but amusing whims and eccentricities that lie behind the screwed down hairdos of rock musicians, it's equally essential reading." N.M.E
