Summary

Punk. Poet. Pioneer. The Bard of Salford’s hugely anticipated new collection of poetry is his first in over 30 years. These are poems as scabrous, wry and vivid as only John Cooper Clarke could deliver. Inimitable and iconic, this collection will be a complete joy for lifelong fans and a whole new generation.

Critic reviews

"John Cooper Clarke is one of Britain’s outstanding poets. His anarchic punk poetry has thrilled people for decades and his no-nonsense approach to his work and life in general has appealed to many people including myself for many years. Long may his slender frame and spiky top produce words and deeds that keep us on our toes and alive to the wonders of the world." (Sir Paul McCartney)

A great book to listen to!

I've been a fan of JCC for some time and want disappointed. This is a great listen and just what you'd expect. Would definitely recommend 😁

Not a heading

Fast as a virgin's climax, witty as hell in a freezer, imaginative as things from spandex, controversial as a Baudelaire teaser. Johm Cooper Clarke puts me in that kind of mood.
