Covers # 60 Julian Cope

Cope covered this, the first song from Pere Ubu's mighty debut The Modern Dance, in the mid-eighties. That Petrol Emotion were doing a live version of their own at round about the same point. It's no surprise, it must have been simply a great fun thing to play. Cope who sounds like a choirboy in comparison with David Thomas almost makes this into a pop object. The track itself, is played almost note for note which is just as it should be.
