A Cosmic Flash

From his 2020 album Self Civil War, an album still getting replayed round these parts, Julian Cope and a song with a first half that is an instrumental organ- guitars- bass freak out over a thumping motorik rhythm before the man himself joins in on vox. 70s guitar solos and acoustic guitar breakdown, working their way down and down before the drums come back and a dirty fuzz part begins the build to the end.

Self Civil War is still a regular here too and the immediate impression that this was among Julian Cope's best albums has endured with repeated plays. It's highly unlikely, but I would love to see Julian Cope tour with a full band - songs like this would really fly in a live setting.
