Andy Gill, Q, May 1991
IN A FUNKY but chic little Parisian cafe called the Piano Vache (rough translation: Soft Cow), Julian Cope faces a roomful of French journalists and puckers his lips into a circle in imitation of well an asshole. Nobody seems outraged. "What's 'loose' in French?" he enquires. "Decontracter? Like when your asshole is puckering like that, yeah? Decontracter. Well, I'm loose. I'm The White Asshole what's 'asshole' in French? The White Asshole is finally decontracter!"
