he wants to be yours

from 30.00

#art/#history: punk poet - the bard of salford - john cooper clarke was born #otd in 1949. he can make vacuum cleaners, raincoats & leccy meters symbols of undying allegiances of passion - & he's made poetry accessible to those whom might otherwise just as soon beat themselves to a throbbing pulp with a copy of john milton's collected works as listen to someone actually reciting rhyming couplets. jcc himself wasn't convinced that his attraction to poetry was anything other than an odd, unwanted affliction until an appearance on 'opportunity knocks' by pam ayres convinced him that the 20th century needed him. good thing, that. buzzcocks & sex pistols gigs wouldn't have been nearly so erudite without him. his influence reaches into present day - most notably through alex turner of arctic monkeys.
