Veteran rocker Julian Cope has quit his popular online music blog after 17 years. The former Teardrop Explodes frontman began writing a regular 'Address Drudion' to fans via his website in 1997, in which he discusses and reviews the most obscure latest releases. The blog became a monthly feature of his website in 2000, making Cope one of the longest bloggers on the Internet, but he is now winding up the column. In his final address this month (Mar14), the Reward hitmaker writes, "Hey Drudion, My time is up! I've been serving up these addresses periodically since 1997CE, and monthly since 2000CE. But now my time here is done. In truth, I've already heard more than enough great underground music this Millennium to convince myself that many of our 21st century artists done transcended the Ancestors. True, brothers'n'sisters. True true." He concludes his final piece by writing, "And to you, dear readers, you who have followed this serpentine operation of mine and whom I must thank for returning again and again, I must declare now that I am not stepping down merely to take my place in the sun, but to step up this Revolution. For the Drude and his Revolution shall always prevail, Motherf**kers!"
