June 2014 sees the release of Julian Cope’s debut novel One Three One: A Time-travelling Gnostic Hooligan Road Novel. The novel features multiple bands and artists from the 1980s who in the course of time will become familiar to readers: Full English Breakfast, Spackhouse Tottu, Forest of Dean, and The Pitt Yacker MCs.

But to trail publication of his head-bendingly original first novel, Faber Social is thrilled to present to the world Rock Section, by the neglected (nay, forgotten) Baggy legends, Dayglo Maradona. Produced in an exclusive limited run of 250 copies for Rough Trade in white vinyl and a package which recalls Rock’s hero and England’s nemesis, Diego Maradona, this never-before-released version of the track features remixes by the Archdrude, Julian Cope, and Andrew Weatherall, Lord Sabre himself.

A Rave Monster has been unleashed upon the world. ‘Look on my works ye mighty, and despair!’
