Julian Cope's last 'Address'

We were very sad to hear that after 18 odd years Julian Cope has made is last 'Address Drudion'. We are sure you are all well aware of this monthly piece where Julian presented to the world reviews of some of the best 'under the radar' sounds being made today.

The monthly address regularly introduced Mission Control to some amazing records, it even introduced us to bands that eventually released records on Rocket. One example is Residual Echoes, it was from Julian's review that made us contact the band and subsequently we put our their second record, plus it led to us releasing the stunning album by Residual Echoes friends the mighty Mammatus.

Apart from these great musical discoveries, Julian's 'Address' was also a champion of our Rocket releases, constantly raving about our Teeth of the Sea, Gnod, The Heads, Anthroprophh etc records.

So as a label the news of this is the last 'Address' leaves us with a massive hole, there aren't many people out there who 'get' what we do like Mr Cope did….so we would just like to say a big THANK YOU to Julian for all his support over the years, it definitely didn't go unnoticed.
