Fired was the second album by Julian cope, released in 1984 by Mercury records (he would sign to Island shortly after this album was released).

Cope retained guitarist Steve Lovell (and guest oboe player Kate St. John) from the previous album, but added Donald Ross Skinner on rhythm and slide guitars, former Waterboys drummer Chris Whitten and former Mighty Wah! Guitarist Steve "Brother Johnno" Johnson. Notoriously, the sleeve featured a naked Cope crouched on top of the Alvecote Mound slag heap clad only in a large turtle shell.

Song topics and approaches included early examples of Cope's tendency to mythologise his own life and connect it to legend and ritual, "Reynard the Fox" combined English folktales with reference to Cope's notorious onstage stomach-slashing incident of the previous year; while "Bill Drummond Said" was a fable about Cope's former manager.

This version contains a bonus disc of B-sides and sessions as well a new note by long time cope publicist Mick Houghton all contained in a 24 page booklet with rare photos and memorabilia.
