Tiny Children. Kilimanjaro is the debut album by the neo-psychedelic Liverpool band The Teardrop Explodes, released on 10 October When originally released, the album featured a shadowy photograph of the band on the sleeve, but this was later changed to a cover showing Mount Kilimanjaro, the mountain after which the record was named.
When the album was subsequently released on CD the cover artwork reverted to the original. InCope gave his blessings to re-release Kilimanjaro with a selection of bonus tracks, original The Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro, a remastered sound, and full lyrics and essays.

Use Me. Having arrived in Merseyside in as a student attending City of Liverpool College of Higher EducationJulian Cope became involved in Liverpool's emerging post-punk scene. Julian Cope . Cope and McCulloch's ongoing ego clashes led to the latter leaving the band during rehearsals, ultimately to form Echo and the Bunnymen.
With Cope taking on the roles of singer and bass guitarist, The Teardrop Explodes was completed by recruiting Simpson and Finkler from the Metgumbnerbone Ligeliahorn of A The Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro Madness and proved a more hardy gigging proposition than its predecessors, soon establishing itself as a live act.
Julian Cope on The Teardrop Explodes . Simpson left the band in the spring: he would go on to form The Wild Swans and then link up with Ian Broudie to form Care. However, co-manager David Balfe had also been lobbying for full Teardrops membership: by Julyhe had succeeded in ousting Quinn and taking his place as keyboard player. The band's next single, "Bouncing Babies", inspired a tribute song of its own: "I Can't Get Bouncing Babies by the Teardrop Explodes" by The Freshiesan ode to the difficulty of obtaining a copy of the song.
In February  the band released their third and final single on Zoo Records, "Treason", which was recorded in London with producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley. Both bands would go on to record different versions of "Read It In Books" in the future, and Cope would also re-record it as a solo artist.
The sessions were interrupted by touring requirements, and also by internal dissension. This peaked when Cope and The Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro opted to fire Mick Finkler as guitarist. Cope would subsequently claim that "Mick, to me, had got really complacent.
There was no fire in what he wanted to do. Mick just wasn't bothered about pushing at all. I thought what's more important, the friendship or the band? And when it came down to it I realised the band was the most important. Julian Cope on the strains within The Teardrop Explodes, . Finkler was replaced by Balfe's Dalek I Love You colleague Alan Gillwho was in the band for the second set of Kilimanjaro sessions and re-recorded approximately half of Finkler's guitar parts.
Gill was also instrumental in introducing the previously drug-free Cope to both cannabis and LSD. This would ensure that a band which had previously had a strong interest only in the stylings and The Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro of psychedelic rock soon began living the psychedelic lifestyle and perspective in earnest.
When released later that year, Kilimanjaro reached number 24 on the UK Albums Chart and the band toured to support it. One further single from the album, released almost a year later, in September The Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro, was "Ha-Ha I'm Drowning" backed by "Poppies in the Field"; early pressings were packaged with The Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro bonus reissue of the "Bouncing Babies" single.
Cope would later praise him for his strong creative impact on both the band and its perspective, but also suggested that with the band's growing success Gill had found himself "afraid to compete.
