    General CommentYeah, it's about Julian Cope. Dave Balfe, their boss at Food records and the person "Country House" is based on, used to be the keyboardist for the Teardrop Explodes - Julian Cope was their lead singer. So it was a bit of a dig at Balfe, who I think Damon detests.

    General CommentAlso Julian Cope's known for taking LSD regularly for a long time and it's had a harsh effect on his sanity.

    "It's colourful, it's colourful, but it washes you out."

    So perhaps there was pressure on Julian to take drugs so that he would write far out songs & act like a spaced-out rock star and all that began to take its toll.

    Or perhaps he took LSD to deal with the pressure there was on him to write more hits for the Teardrop Explodes.
