Sounds and words worth remembering
Hi, I came across this post. I just wrote a feature on the origins of The Teardrop Explodes band name if you'd like to take a look - http://thequietus.com/articles/09596-the-teardrop-explodes . I got to talk to everyone involved (except Cope, unfortunately), even Gerry Conway, who wrote the Daredevil issue they found the name in.P.S. 'Friend Of Rachel Worth' is a great name. I'm a big Go-Betweens fan too.
Hi Aug - thanks for the commentI read it .. and a great piece it was too. i was interestign to get a wider perspective re the influence of comics on that bunch of people. The only version I'd heard was what Julian Cope had written in Head (my fav music autobiography)so to get Paul Simpson ,etc perspective was fantastic
