Dope Feat Julian Cope

The Dee Dee Ramone Story

    Here’s some sweet relief at last for hi-fi fans! Yes, Dope’s obscure ‘cassette-only’ album is now available on white vinyl, again from Bristol’s Environmental Studies record label. Packaged in fluorescent orange and white, this limited edition LP of 500 copies features two side-long epics each of over 20 minutes in duration, and both tracks replete with that same gargantuan sonic overload of the band’s two previous releases. Side One’s ‘The Dee Dee Ramone Story’ commences with Julian Cope’s epic tale of 21st century gender bending and sexual en-freeing before its low-key pulses become o’erwhelmed by the stratospherics of the Dope crew.

    Imagine very early Ash Ra Tempel through the filter of Brainticket’s LP COTTONWOODHILL, and then some … er, and then some more. Dope are The-Not-Back-Off Kids, for sure. Side Two’s bumpy ‘Absalom & Ahitophel’ appropriates the sentiments of John Dryden’s epic poem from 1681, then feeds it all through Holy McGrail’s space echo to achieve what could be called the most true rastakrautpasta. Get your online self down to the nearest record emporium and pronto –¬ this stuff has a long shelf life but it’s still best served fresh, all you prevaricators!
