The second album from Cope, once vocalist with pop group The Teardrop Explodes, Fried remains a high point from the last days of English pop-rock. As a singular voice amidst a scene dominated by group culture, Cope engenders an ambience of fractured reality, from the album’s famous cover image inwards, that elevates Fried to the level of enduring artistic statement.
