I really need to get to this, I saw him at a retro-punk festival in Leeds in the 80's and he was hilarious but very clever at the same time. He was supporting the Bay City Rollers BTW!

He turned-out to be the best thing at last weeks Meltdown Festival. He was on for 2 hours and had everyone in stitches. "A Revelation!", or so I've been told by a colleague who was there..... He talks about doing all those bonkers gigs of old as part of his act now as well as doing some of the poetry, and obviously there's a lot of very funny stuff that's happened to him over the years. Not least the time he spent living in Zurich with his then GF Nico (she of the Velvet Underground fame - Have you read her biog? Mental! Highly Recommended!) as well as working with the Alcoholic, Coked-up Shang-A-Langas!

He's doing Glastonbury this weekend which should be good for the comedy this year (whenever it rains the cabaret tent is brilliant 'cos everyone wants to shelter, when the sun shines it's rubbish for the opposite reason!) so anyone that might be going (good luck!!?) can verify all this for themselves!

Re: The Legendary JOHN COOPER CLARKE appearing for a one-off, one man show!

1 pair of tickets are up for grabs to the first person here on the EF that can answer the following question:

What is the title of one of JCC's most well-known poems that appeared on the B-side of his 1979 single "Gimmix"?


There will be more pairs of tickets to win on this thread over the next few weeks.

Watch this space!

I was one of the young pups who studied his poems when I was 15! I went to see him live and it was such a great show, I can really recommend it if you can get to Zurich... as for me, cannot as am not free at that time. Dommage.

(I Married A) Monster From Outer Space
I fell in love with an alien being
Whose skin was jelly
Whose teeth were green
She had big bug eyes
And a death ray glare
Feet like water wings
Purple hair

I was over the moon
I asked her back to my place
And I married the monster from outerspace.



So sad I'll be away on holiday so won't make this but I saw JCC about a dozen times in the early 80s around the East Midlands and Yorkshire. Glad to see he's still going.

Looking at some of the people he's worked with, supported, influenced and toured with -
The Fall
Sex Pistols
New Order
Joy Divison
Siouxsie
Buzzcocks
Elvis Costello
Joe Strummer
Nico
Artic Monkeys...
- and I first knew him from the Sugar Puffs advert

Can't wait to see him live.

How easy it to get to the venue from ZH HB? Will it be finished in time for me to get the train back to Fribourg (i.e. IC to GVA)

Re: The Legendary JOHN COOPER CLARKE appearing for a one-off, one man show!

Less than 10 minutes strolling distance, PaddyG. Straight along the Bahnhofstrasse, right at Pelikanstrasse and up to Pelikanplatz, where you can't miss Kaufleuten, which dominates the corner.

Seems the show ends at around 10pm, so rinse and repeat home.

In the shadow of the world Forum famous Talacker bar, too

Having such an esteemed performer in town is a cultural opportunity not to be missed, especially on a Friday evening. Make a night of it and stay over. Zurich is too lovely to miss. Bring a gal and treat her right

Not sure if Mrs. PaddyG would approve. I'll ask her....

My last chance to get home is at 1.00, there's a train to Bern, then a night bus to Fribourg.

You lucky burghers! Too far for me. It must have been 1978 that I saw him do a one man show in Salford. At least we can all enjoy his classic "Cycle Sluts" on Youtube.
