|History of COPE-LAND|
by Dave Hill and Art Parnell in 1997, COPE-LAND was the first Citizen Cope
website. Both being long-time fans (Dave from the BASEHEAD days and Art
from the 1992 debut album, Cope Citizen), we established this site to
get the word out to other Cope fans and to the entertainment industry.
Starting in 1998, various contributors helped to strengthen the content of the
site and to louden the buzz about Cope in the DC music scene...growing to the
NYC & LA scenes soon thereafter.
While not the only ones, the primary contributors include Barbara (of
Barbara's Guitars), Eric Brace, John Ginty, Clarence Greenwood (A.K.A. -
Citizen Cope), Marco Mazzarino, Dan Parker, Mike Shupp, and
