John Cooper Clarke

It makes us inordinately happy to be able to tell you that the original and best punk poet is gracing both Edinburgh and Glasgow with his presence this fortnight. You might have seen him reciting his work on the end of that Joy Division video, you might be old enough to have seen him opening for The Sex Pistols or the Buzzcocks back in the day, you might recognise him from recent Ian Curtis biopic Control, or you might have only started reading this because you thought the picture was Cate Blanchett playing Bob Dylan. Whatever. Now we’ve got your attention, we insist that you go and see this man, because he’s great, and opportunities like this are very very rare indeed.

Edinburgh, Cabaret Voltaire, Sat 28 Feb; Glasgow, The Arches, Sun 1 Mar.
