Someone’s slung Julian Cope’s BBC documentary THE MODERN ANTIQUARIAN, produced following the success of his book of the same name (which is bloody wonderful) up on YouTube. I don’t think this piece ever made it to DVD, so I’m delighted to find it again. For those coming to Cope fresh, treat him (especially in the opening) with good humour — he doesn’t take himself too seriously, after all. This is a man who titled one of his albums DROOLIAN, and another CHARLOTTE ANN. Click through for the other five parts of the video.
