Here's some sweet relief at last for hi/fi fans! Yes, Dope's obscure assette/only' album is now available on white vinyl, again from Bristol's Environmental Studies record label. Pack/aged in fluorescent orange and white, this limited edition LP of 500 copies features two side/long epics each of over 20 minutes in duration, and both tracks replete with that same gargan/tuan sonic overload of the band's two previous releases. Side One's he Dee Dee Ramone Story' commences with Julian Cope's epic tale of 21st century gender bending and sexual en/freeing before its low/key pulses become o'erwhelmed by the stratospherics of the Dope crew. Imagine very early Ash Ra Tempel through the filter of Brainticket's LP COTTONWOODHILL, and then some . er, and then some more. Dope are The/Not/Back/Off Kids, for sure. Side Two's bumpy bsalom ^ Ahitophel' appropriates the sentiments of John Dryden's epic poem from 1681, then feeds it all through Holy McGrail's space echo to achieve what could be called the most true rastakrautpasta.
