Ho Ho Ho – here’s the feel-good festive Yuletide gift for this or any season!

Cuddle up to a malt whiskey and a spliff with this lavish multi-media package! Pore over the 48-page booklet of previously unpublished hand-written lyrics, poems, notes and photographs. And while you’re at it, dream along to the 42-minute accompanying CD of Cope’s recitations and poems of the 1978-82 era, each performed over lost Teardrop Explodes grooves of the strident bubblegum trance variety.

Thirteen epic (and not-so-epic) memories – published and unpublished from the Head-On period – this singular package brings to life the inner world of a group that refuses to die but will never reunite.
