John Cooper Clarke

Here's a little thing I found on John Cooper Clarke that was on a Wire message board in 2002:

John Cooper Clarke spotted last year headlining at the Huncote Music Festival. Try finding that place on a map. (It's in Leicestershire.) I don't think he'll be playing there again - lots of jokes about the railroad not getting to Huncote yet etc. Supported by some god awful local covers band he came on to tell awful jokes for about an hour and a half with the
occasional poem. Certainly extremely un-PC. And he was absolutely bladdered. Keen to tell us that he's off the smack full time now though.
