    Saw Julian Cope this weekend at the Roadmender in Northampton. The support band, Dogtank, were good, and held the crowd's interest pretty well. But Cope was on great form. I've never seen one man, armed only with a guitar, captivate a room for over two hours.

    He started with 'Living in the room that they found Sadam in', a new song he's written about being bored with staying in and writing a book, essentially. But things soon picked up, with plenty of tunes from his back catalogue. Autogeddon, Peggy Suicide and Jehovahkill were the main sources, although, at the request of a heckle, 'Robert Mitchum' also got played, from 'Skellington Chronicles'.

    Overall, an excellent gig if you're a Cope fan. And surprisingly, a very good one if you're not: friends seemed to agree that it was a top night of hilarity and tunes.
