Julian Cope_Black Sheep_Fido's Blues DVD. Part 2

Film from the Black Sheep, Joe Strummer, Busking Tour of 2008.
Three Days On The Road With The Black Sheep Acoustic Division.

DVD Sleevenotes:'After the Black Sheep Acoustic Division's canny "Joe Strummer Memorial Busking Tour" in Autumn 2008, some guys who'd followed them around with film cameras attempted to put together a documentary, but failed due to their A-Political natures and insensitivity to the material, which they were dealing with.

After several attempts to lively up these guys and better explain to them the Black Sheep metaphor, Julian Cope decided enough was enough and severed communication. This was their emailed reply:

"To be honest I don't really understand (Julian Cope's) thinking with this anyway because he must realise that the flaw in choosing to ignore us is that we've got all the footage and - if we were so inclined - we could upload everything onto youtube now (including a lot of footage we know he'd be mortified to see out there)." (Chris Hall, Director)

Typically insensitive and wholly inappropriate threats, especially considering the (ahem) adventuresome political nature of all the material.
Julian Cope then asked the head of Black Sheep's Blasphemous Movie Division to put together a more sympathetic treatment daring, mind-manifesting, Utopian in vision, sometimes opaque, nay, inchoate and always legend enforcing.

This is Fido Blues and it is the work of Fido-X. Brother Motherfucker, you've turned this rent-a-wreck into a turbo-charged 4X4!!!'
