COOPER CLARKE, JOHN
EVIDENTLY JOHN COOPER CLARKE (OZIT RECORDS)
At last a new album from John Cooper Clarke - admittedly only archive recordings but nonetheless of interest to all his fans.
These archive recordings from the period when John Cooper Clarke was managed by Rabid (Anthony Ryan Carter, Laurence Beedle and Martin Hannett) show JCC at his most incisive, witty and creative.
Martin Hannett would often just put a microphone in a room where JCC was sat holding a conversation and record the witty banter or Martin would turn up and record one of JCC's live performances.
The Rabid/Hannett archive contains hours of fly on the wall recordings of The Bard of Salford- enjoy this instalment.
