“I say to people, have you heard of John Cooper Clarke and if they say, yes, yeah he’s an absolute genius and you just go, ‘oh – ok, you’ve saved me a lot of time.” Steve Coogan
John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’.
His unique poetry writing and rapidfire delivery style was recorded and put to music by legendary producer Martin Hannett and a band of Mancunian superstars, such as Buzzcocks Pete Shelley and The Durutti Columns Vinnie Reilly.
