Julian Cope To Busk Around UK

Julian Cope is to embark on a three day busking tour of the UK's cultural centres in memorial of Joe Strummer, whose Clash busking tour in 1986 was the inspiration.

Starting at the "site of ancient law hill Swanborough Tump in the Vale of Pewsey" at 10am on October 27, the tour will end in front of the Carl Jung Statue in Liverpool’s Mathew Street on the 29th.

Cope will be accompanied by singer/guitarists Acoustika and Michael O’Sullivan, Universal Panzies leader Christophe F., and Black Sheep strategist Big Nige.
