Rock star, author, antiquary, musicologist, poet and cultural commentator – one time front-and-behind-man of The Teardrop Explodes, solo since ’83 as well as messing with your head in side projects including Queen Elizabeth, Brain Donor and Black Sheep. A collaboration between The Cope and Mark has almost happened a few times, most notably with the Brain Donor film DAUB. But maybe it’s better off just existing in our mind’s hairy eyeball. Worship at the feet of the Arch Drude! We’ll save a space for ya.
