New documentary confirmed

A new trailer has emerged from the forthcoming Julian Cope documentary 'Revolution Blues'.

Julian Cope is a true one off. Initially a pop star with The Teardrop Explodes, the frontman has embarked on a bizarre solo career which includes a brush with fame and an alternative career as a Pagan prophet.

A well known expert on pre-Historic Britain, Julian Cope announced plans for an unusual tour last year. Set to play sites of cultural importance across the country, the singer was joined by a professional film crew.

Featuring the cult hero in full ranting form, 'Revolution Blues' is an informed, sensitive portrayal of an artist whose work has taken him right through the mainstream and out the other side.

Start Productions have taken control of the project, and have released a trailer which you can see below. But first: the blurb...

"In October 2008 we filmed as Julian Cope and the Black Sheep embarked on an intensive 3-day busking tour of 11 of the UK's 'forgotten' heritage sites and important cultural centres - including the site of Eddie Cochran's death, Emmeline Pankhurst statue in Parliament Square, Karl Marx burial place in Highgate, the site of Peterloo Massacre in Manchester and the Carl Jung statue in Matthew Street, Liverpool."
