World Shut Your Mouth was written during Cope's retreat to the village of Drayton Bassett close to his childhood home of Tamworthfollowing the breakup of Cope's former band The Teardrop Explodes. The Teardrop Elegant Chaos - Julian Cope - World Shut Your Mouth. Although World Shut Your Mouth generally retained the uptempo pop drive of The Teardrop Explodes, it was also an introspective and surreal work. Cope had spent a Super Cat - Jah Paradise in seclusion in which he recovered Hello Jim - Paul Anka - Hello Jim the strain of the final year of the Teardrops and from the LSD excesses of the times: during this period, he had amassed a huge collection of vintage toys.
Cope's contemporary vulnerability and childhood preoccupations informed the songs on the album, most notably on songs like "Head Hang Low" and "Sunshine Playroom". It gained poor reviews and sold indifferently.
The album's first single "Sunshine Playroom" featured a macabre and disturbing video directed by David Bailey. The album's title was later reused for another Cope song which became a hit single in and was also taken for the title of a Dom Joly TV show.
