Whilst I was at poly Julian Cope made an annual visit to perform live, he'd even be made honoury president of the student's union. Nation Underground was the follow up lp to Saint Julian which had got him back into the charts and on top of the pops. It was also full of bright shiny pop songs but came out to luke warm reviews and poor sales. The whole thing saw Cope abandon the pop wagon for good and start to make sprawling double lps the first of which Peggy Suicide saw him get the best reviews of his career.
My Nation Underground is not the disaster this all suggests there are some great pop songs on there but it does all feel a tad too polished and slightly soulless.
In all honesty I can't remember much about the concert at all, which in itself says a lot.
I've posted the lead off single and still one of my Julian Cope favourites
