John Cooper Clarke 1977

An early mention of Clarkey as part of a Manchester round up in the Melody Maker.
Sadly not the last time the ‘poetry corner’ strap line was used. The Melody Maker was always the first in uninspired.
Sad Cafe are described as ‘one of Manchester’s most exciting new bands since 10CC’, whereas Clarkey is quite rightly ‘don’t miss’.

    Contemplating another day trying to find the poetry in the 9-5, I saw your post and remembered that, even though he now seems like the first black biroed letter of a cursing verse come to life on stage, he once had a day job. I know I am no John Cooper Clarke but I cant help wanted to try to be.
