JOHN COOPER CLARKETUE 9 MAY 2023
John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’.
His unique poetry was put to music by producer Martin Hannett and a band of Mancunians The Invisible Girls. Seminal tracks such as Beasley St and Evidently Chickentown featured on the album Snap Crackle and Bop, one of 4 hit 70/80s album releases. JCC became one of the most prolific artists of the Punk years.

“One of Britain’s outstanding poets”
– Sir Paul McCartney
I supported JCC and The Fall once in Mbro Town Hall Crypt when the first band pulled out at the last minute - what an amazing thing to be offered. I have the signed poster to prove it.
