Never been a huge Julian Cope fan, not because I don’t like his music, but mostly just because I’m just downright unfamiliar. This song (and good words from friends/fellow musicians) is probably going to make me go out and invest in some of his stuff.
I saw The New Pornographers (whose new album is one of their best in years, by the way) cover this song a few weekends ago and honestly, I haven’t really been able to get it out of my head since. It’s definitely the catchiest pop song about suicide bombers ever. I’m actually astounded by the sheer amount of syllables he’s able to cram into that chorus.

All the blowing-themselves-up motherfuckers will realize the minute they die that they were suckers.
