Punk poet

 The Big Issue in the North - UK 17 March 2019

British performance poet John Cooper Clarke shot to fame during the punk era while supporting the likes of The Buzzcocks, The Fall and the Sex Pistols. His socially and politically aware poems struck a chord with audiences in the 70s but nearly 40 years later the 65-year-old is still selling out shows and attracting younger fans. Clarke speaks to Neil Tague about his lengthy career and lifting himself out of drug addiction. (1704 Words) - By Neil Tague
