Head Heritage Records
2018 sees cope resuscitate his long dormant Skellington project with 12 songs - each captured in that loose, quick-fire Skellington style: bucolic ditties, muscular adventures, moderne interactions, tipsy interludes, even classy rock’n’roll of the post-punk persuasion.
So what makes SKELLINGTON 3 a worthy successor to those previously released? Everything! Cope has utilised the considerable experience gained from constructing those previous albums, and has harnessed the studio time with the skill of a micro-manager! now, he daubs his luscious Mellotron 400 over everything – a little addition that was unavailable to him Back In The Day. So it’s ‘Acid Campfire’ with Mellotron; Occasionally humorous, never timorous, ALWAYS sumptuous! “here you get the acid-drop sunshine, stream-of-consciousness cope, uncut: solo, alone, and unfazed” 8/10 – uncut.
