Julian Cope refuses to play Fibbers, York stating ‘…stage was too dark’…

Julian Cope – a man rarely seen without sunglasses on last night Wednesday 20th May refused to play a gig a Fibbers, York – he stated that the ‘stage was too dark’

Disappointed fans were turned away at the door after Cope, 57, left the venue without playing a single note – attendees were told that Cope had found the stage too dark to play, and had left the venue.

Cope suffers with an unspecified eye condition, and having arrived at the venue in preparation for the gig found the place not quite to his liking.

Did any of you attend the gig – was any further explanation given?

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
