Musician, comedian and pioneering performance poet, John Cooper Clarke is the embodiment of northern cynical wisdom. Abrupt, anarchic and as sharp as a barber's razor, the Salford Bard with more backcomb than Brand has disfigured many a stage with his punk-paced social commentary. Supporting cult acts including the Sex Pistols, Joy Division and New Order with works such as Health Fanatic, Daily Express and Chickentown. His all-seeing and brutally funny wordsmithery continues to pervade the work of modern artists such as Noel Gallagher, The Arctic Monkeys and Lily Allen.
