Eschewing the usual criteria of chart success or acknowledged
influence, the Copendium - a collection of album reviews and themed
track samplers - takes energy, originality and heaviness as its
bearings. The result is a feast of obscure and neglected
masterworks that together form a surprising but entirely credible
new tradition. Krautrock, motorik and post-punk, stoner and doom
metal, occasionally even jazz, spoken word and hair metal: they are
all represented in a wholly persuasive sequence. Cope is the
perfect guide to this novel terrain: impeccably informed,
passionate, insightful and deeply funny. The Copendium is his
re-imagining of a useful canon of popular music, and it is set to
become required reading.
