  • Emerging from a late-1970s/early-'80s scene (Echo & the Bunnymen, Wah!, et al) based around the Liverpool club Eric's, Teardrop Explodes channeled '60s influences (The Doors, Scott Walker, Syd Barrett) into pop-tinged New Wave. Their 1980 debut, KILIMANJARO, is full of dreamy, effervescent tunes that sparkle with the kind of wide-eyed wonder found in '60s psychedelia. Still, their propulsive edge could exist only in a post-punk-fueled universe. Singer/future-solo-star Julian Cope's reedy voice relates tales tinged with an air of mystery and melancholy atop whirring organ lines and modernized Mersey beats. Trainspotters note: the Cope/Ian McCulloch-penned "Books" was also recorded contemporaneously by Echo & the Bunnymen, as "Read It In Books."
Professional Reviews
Q (1/01, p.134) - 5 out of 5 stars - "...Fat with great songs such as 'Treason' and 'Bouncing Babies', their debut sounds as fantastic, colorful and unhinged now as it did [back] in the day..."

Mojo (Publisher) (12/00, p.124) - "...The songs remain incredibly wide-eyed....smothered in obscure pop culture references...and lovelorn psycho-babble..."

NME (Magazine) (9/25/93, p.19) - Ranked #17 among The 50 Greatest Albums Of The '80s.

Uncut (magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Much as they try to be trippy and hypnotic and psychedelic, The Teardrop Explodes couldn't' help making perfect pop music..."
